My Speech about Love, Infatuation, Lust

Yeah. I wrote and presented this one on class. =))

๏ปฟLove is a complex perplexity that has been defined by countless people; yet, no one has ever been close in grasping its true nature. One may turn to his/her dictionary to look for the meaning; however, even the dictionary cannot define this exactly. We then ask, how will we know if we’re already in love if we, ourselves, cannot even identify it? It is an intricate question; indeed, we often confuse love with various feelings like lust and infatuation.

Back in our Elementary days, we had our own crushes and immediately thought that it was love; hence, the catchphrase “I am in love with you” and the ever-popular “love at first sight.” People carry the belief until they grow up. They are being blinded by this sad thing. What they don’t know is that it’s not love; in fact, it is called Infatuation. We know it’s infatuation since Infatuation is distinguished by a lack of trust, loyalty, commitment, and reciprocity; in addition, there is the presence of the obsessor and the apple of the eye, which of course may or may not be attainable.

For kids, there’s infatuation; however, for young adults and adults alike, there is lust. Lust, also known as lechery, is an impure act that involves one’s desire of the “flesh” of another. Lust is prevalent in teenagers and adults alike. Whenever they see an attractive person, they feel infatuated and afterward, think of unclean thoughts involving them and the concerned person. What is sad about this is that once their desires have been met, they grow tired and eventually leave their partners.

What really is love then? Is it safe to say that love is anything that doesn’t fall under infatuation and lust? Love is definitely a deeper feeling; on the contrary, infatuation and lust are simply feelings that are too shallow. Love is simply too complex to be talked out; subsequently, many people still end up being perplexed by love. This makes love a very special feeling; uniquely, it gives one an experience that no other feeling could give and that includes lust and infatuation.

When everything is said and done, we can all say that love is indeed a wonderful feeling which can be talked about for a very long time.

Special Thanks to Jio for some. :]

    • Apparently, it’s one of the most mysterious things people can’t accurately solve. My apologies if I can’t answer your question. I guess, it’s just beyond general principles. I think it varies from one person to another. You just have to find the right connection.

    • Khatelynn says:

      I guess when there is trust, and love. Or maybe when you get jealous? When care too much for that person. And if your relationship lasts more than 4 months? cause infatuations lasts only for 4 months.

      • Clairmae says:

        …really?..does infatuation only lasts upto 4 months?, more than that, is already cosidered as love? about those relationships that were about to end more than a year? it love?…how will you determine a true love ?

    I like your speech! For me, love is something that is full of mystery like the rosary hehehe ๐Ÿ™‚ but actually love is a wonderful gift that you don’t have to beg just to have this. You don’t need to search for it but expect that it will come soon. Every people in this world regardless of your social status or gender deserve to be loved by someone. God will give you a better person ,in the right time, that will love you forever. As long as you believe in the power of love it will definitely come! And i will wait and pray for that perfect guy. If he truly love God everything will follow. : >

    Can i know who’s the great author of this wonderful speech? I just need it in my reference. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚


    hi, ur speech was good but I have a question. is it considered love when u have mutual understanding for over a year? u r both in a long distance but still have affection for each other. ๐Ÿ™‚ I appreciate every answer. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Maybe it is. I don’t know the intensity of how much you feel about him or of how much he feels for you, but I’m optimistic that even for over a year, it’s still there. Long distance intensifies the love, but too much of it turns you both into complete strangers in the long run.
