while going through old papers.. Just thought I'd post and share it. What do you think? Author Unknown. Love vs Infatuation Infatuation leaps into bloom. Love usually takes root slowly and grows with time. Infatuation is accompanied by a sense of uncertainty. You are stimulated and thrilled, but not really happy. You are miserable when he is absent. Love begins with a feeling of security. You are warm with a sense of nearness, even when he is away. Miles do not separate you. Infatuation says, "We must get married right away. I can't risk losing him." Love says, "Don't rush into anything." You are sure of one another. You can plan your future with confidence. Infatuation has an element of sexual excitement. If you are honest you will discover it is difficult to enjoy one another unless you know it will end in intimacy. Love is the maturation of friendship. You must be friends before you can be lovers. Infatuation lacks confidence. When he's away, you wonder if he's with another. Love means trust. You may fall into infatuation, but you can never fall into love. Infatuation might lead you to do things you'll be sorry for, but love never will. Love leads you up. It makes you look up. It makes you think up. It makes you a better person that you were before.

reunited with my high school sweetheart after 28 years, got married, a year after we were married, he was diagnoised with cancer... he died 18 months later. when you love someone,, i took care of him, and loved him,, and today i am at peace, because of the great love we shared. i miss him, but i always believed that god put me back in his life to take care of him with love during that time... i have no regrets. i have started dating,, and i love that article,, cos its so true, love is patient,,, no rush, get to know one another, and trust,, but in all the hurt and pain we go through at times, with love , death, whatever,,, don't ever ever let your heart get cold , there is warmth all around you.

BTW y'all my name is Vickie. Hi Doug ~~ I think it explains a lot, now if I could just imprint it on my mind and remember it when I need to. :) Kimichick -Your Welcome.. I have kept this little article for years, it reminds me of.. yeah how it's supposed to be. Not date who we're attracted to? Oh I get it, the attraction will grow if the friendship does. Ok that will keep me out of the wrong bed ...hmm LoL FloridaCutie - I don't mind at all. Copy and keep no problem, I didn't write it, but I believe it. LMAO I thought I was the only 1 with those eyes trapped in my mature body. :D Ahh if we could all keep those young hard body's of our past.

Hi Vicabit.... It's so true...I'm going to copy this if you don't mind and put it on my desktop to remind myself of the wisdom. My friends have accused me of being TOO Picky. I've thought about it alot and I've decided that I have 18-year old eyes trapped in my middle aged body. Most of the guys I meet I am not at all attracted to--so when I meet a guy that I am attracted to, I really am excited. That usually is bad. I met a guy a few years back that I thought was one of the handsomest older men that I have ever seen. Of course because I was infatuated, I overlooked the fact that he was not a kind and caring man. And I was an absolute fool. My hope now is to meet someone...become friends and then one day, look over and say Wow! You're the greatest--Let's kick this relationship up a notch! BAM!!!

I agree & thanks for posting Vicdabit... I think we KNOW these things esp. at "our" age.. *ahem* but it's always good to be reminded!! Some of the best advice I have gotten since I have been single was to avoid dating the guy that I usually would be attracted to.. (humm, that has always gotten me in trouble before as they always ended up to be the bad boy..) now when I go out I hang-out with with the type I enjoy having as a real friend & so far, that has worked really well.. take your time & enjoy things, ya know??

Somehow this explains a few things that I never considered before.
