What Singles Must Know about Infatuation

Infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by an attraction to someone. The dictionary calls it “being blindly in love”. What that means is that you are so carried away by this attraction that you do not know what you are doing. If you are blind to the fault of the person, you think he is perfect, other people may see faults but you are blind to them.

If something infatuates you, it has caused you to become foolish. We say you have an infatuation when you express a crazy, extreme love of something––a person, a style, a band, anything. Infatuations usually don’t last. Like incredibly intense crushes or the stomach flu, infatuations come on strong and then get forgotten.

The person involved in a romantic infatuation usually cannot think of anything or anyone else other than the person he or she is in love with. An infatuation is an “emotional high” but it never lasts long because it is not true love. Longman dictionary of contemporary English defines it as unreasonably strong feelings of love that you only have for a short time especially for someone you do not know very well.


Infatuations do not last long, what do last is the bitterness it leaves behind. When you are infatuated, you do not use your common sense, your romantic feelings are in control. When things happen like this you can do things you will regret for the rest of your life.
