According to wikipedia:
Infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by unreasoned passion or love.
Truth be told, I always looked at it differently.According to zeww, infatuation is the state when you can't really get enough of someone. To me, when you're infatuated with someone , you are not necessarily in love with him. I mean , it is a good start for love, or rather a necessity, (i.e I doubt anyone can fall in love with someone if they're not infatuated with them) but the opposite does not apply (i.e you can be infatuated with someone in a way that can be friendship or just admiration, but you still can't get enough of their company). Ya3ni infatuation can turn into love but not necessarily.
Tayeb, that being said ba2a, let's take "the boy i know" whom I previously mentioned. We know he is driving me crazy because I don't get how he feels. But it got me thinking, maybe HE doesn't know how HE feels. Maybe he's just infatuated (zaii bezabt) and probably hasn't realized which type of infatuation it is (the kind that potentially turns into love or the kind that is all about friendship).
And if so, how do I tell the difference, ba2a? Signs and signals can be interpreted in any number of ways and when one is infatuated, everything is a sign. And we obviously know, I am infatuated. Fa eih? Maybe he too is sitting there thinking, "that crazy girl" and thinking I'm giving mixed signals . Am I? Am I giving any signals in the first place? I keep wondering.
So let's say for the sake of argument, that the above is true, should I try to intervene to reach an outcome faster (be that outcome positive or negative) and get the waiting phase over with? (I was never good at waiting anyway). Wala stick to my usual approach "let nature run its course" and "time sorts things out", which although more intuitive for me to do (and for the lack of an action plan or the capability to execute one had it existed), elongates the infatuation period which may lead to being hurt?
