Love often starts with infatuation, but once the relationship matures to another level, it may turn into love. The reason you may want to know the difference is before making any major life commitments, you want to make sure what you have is love and not infatuation. You know its love when:

1. Your partner feels like your best friend.

2. You feel like you are so lucky and blessed to have them.

3. You truly care about the other person and their thoughts and feelings.

4. You are willing to compromise with them.

6. The relationship is over 6 months old.

7. You may not think the person is always perfect. You may dislike them at times, but you still love them.

8. You do not have to spend every minute with them, you spend a good balance of leisure time together and apart.

9. Your friends and family think you make a good couple.

10. You care deeply about the thoughts of your partner, feeling, morals, and beliefs.

11. You consider the other person when making future plans.

20. Even when you disagree, you both can understand the thoughts and ideas of your partner.

21. The idea of committing to them does not scare you.

29. You have discussed your plans and dreams, how many kids you want, where you want to live, your religious beliefs, morals and so on with them because you plan on making them a permanent part of your life.

Love is more mature than infatuation because with love, you have commitment and trust. You also have a deep knowledge of the ideas, hopes, futures, and fears of the your partner. Because love takes getting to know the other person, and emotional intimacy, it generally develops over a longer time than infatuation. It is said that infatuation starts quickly, but love grows slowly. In fact, the way many people fall in love begins with infatuation that matures into love.
