What is love? What is friendship? What is infatuation? What is the connection/difference between these three?

Is love simply an infatuation, a biological desire to reproduce? Is it controlled by our biological hormones or is it much more complex? Why is human love different from animal love? Is love what Hollywood portrays? Is love friendship? How are the two different?

    Jun 17 2012: Love, Friendship & Infatuation

    Understanding:

    - Love is one of intense vibration within our heart to fulfill the needs of a loved one with more emphasis on the loved ones than ourselves.

    - Friendship is one of intense vibration within our heart to fulfill the needs of both with more emphasis on both that involved in the friendship

    - Infatuation is one of intense vibration within our heart to fulfill the needs of ourselves with more emphasis on self pleasure for ourselves.

    Relational:

    - Love obligates us to make additional fulfillment to friendship and infatuation.
    - Friendship obligates us to make additional fulfillment to infatuation
    - Infatuation obligates us to fulfill what should be fulfilled by infatuation itself.

    Infatuation could lead us to make a friendship relation and friendship could lead us to make a love relation.

    And all fulfillment should be provided based on religion or ethic.
