She even describes these feelings as being dizzy which they can be, what a person feels during infatuation is very confusing and overwhelming. Decisions made by someone during infatuation are by nature irrational. When two people first meet they will make decisions that are ultimately made in haste and are not thought out thoroughly.

Cherry seems to become more nutty when she falls for Lewis. But that’s what the audience wants to see, the normality of people turning mad because of love.

He loved Guinevere more than his life…for life with her was unimaginable.” (Lister 62) Lancelot loved Guinevere more than he loved himself, more than his whole life.

This confusion is evident in Romeo and Juliet as the conceptions of shallow and superficial love are being depicted. Love is commonly defined as having an unconditional, profoundly tender feeling of deep affection towards another person, whereas in comparison, infatuation is the state of being obsessive and carried away by unreasoned desire or lust. Even though some may debate otherwise, I believe Romeo and Juliet’s “love” is based upon shallow infatuation due to their sudden physical desirability for one another and the rapid development of their relationship.

In this complicated scenario, the true nature of love is brought out, and the question is asked: Can you love someone who changes every day? I know it wouldn’t be simple to fall in love with someone of A’s kind, especially because these days, many people fall in love with a person’s physical appearance, social popularity, and the person they are on the outside. Could you fall in love with only someone’s personality, or does the outside play the important part in that person’s appearance as well? “Some people think mental illness is a matter of mood, a matter of personality. They think depression is simply a form of being sad, that OCD is a form of being uptight.
The faulty love in “Lessons of Love” In the short story “Lessons of Love” by Judith Ortiz Cofer, the young girl is an excellent example of unreliable love, people who abuse love, take advantage of love, and people who feel so intimated about their love they are willing to do anything for them, but they don’t know if they are going to get the same thing back from them.
