  1. I am not very optimistic you will have any success on this. Love is an ill defined poetic term, which has millions of meanings, as individual with diverse personal experiences.

    You will have to get more specific in your connotation and meanings, or you will step into a swamp that has no egress.

    Read Elizabeth Barrett Browning's attempt to define what she felt as love. Compare that to a temporal flame that cannot last.

  2. Contrast the quick definition of "infatuation" here with what Bob Pursley has given you above. You should have no trouble seeing the differences!
