Love Quote

"I love you for all that you are all that you have been and all you're yet to be." -Unknown


I think this is a good representation of love because, when you love someone you'd do anything for them, and accept them faults and all.

Infatuation Quote

"When you develop an infatuation for someone you always find a reason to believe that this is exactly the person for you" -Leonardo DiCaprio


I like this quote because it's a good, and fits infatuation, not because it says infatuation literally in the quote but the context. For infatuation in the moment that you like someone you'd do anything to believe that, that person is perfect.

Relationship Scenarios

Love: Being childhood friends, then falling in love when they grow older, eventually marrying, and being with each other the rest of their lives.


Infatuation: Meeting a person you like in high school, and dating them knowing you have a few things in common but you know you won't be together forever.
