Love or Infatuation: How to Know

Infatuation is that magical time at the beginning of a relationship when everything is perfect.

Characteristics of Infatuation

During this time, you feel as though the two of you were made for each other. You think that God truly made this person for you. Everything about him is perfect and nothing ever bothers you.

You stay up for hours just talking and you never run out of things to say to each other. You can’t believe that you finally found your soul mate. All this time, you have been looking and you finally found him.

You know that it must be real love because you have never felt this way before. You have such love, admiration, and desire for this person. The sex is absolutely amazing, it is truly a spiritual connection.


The thing about infatuation is that it eventually wears off. The infatuation stage of love is caused by the chemicals in your body reacting to the chemicals in your partner’s body. This biological connection is what we call “chemistry“. The bigger the difference in your DNA from his, the stronger the chemistry.

Infatuation is Necessary

There is actually a very good reason to have the infatuation stage of love. This creates a strong foundation of love for the relationship. You create wonderful memories and good feelings that you can look back on fondly. This love will help you weather the ups and downs of a life together.

You need to remember that eventually the infatuation will wear off. This is when the real relationship begins. You will see your partner for who he really is. Now you can begin to create the life and love that you have always wanted.

    Thanks for the comment Songstress,

    We’ve been married 24 (soon 25) and have been together just under 30. The cool thing for me is I still have a good deal of infatuation for my wife on a regular basis.

    I do think infatuation is important in the beginning, but it does always wear off. Love is what sticks around.
