OK, we may be splitting hairs on that beautiful, sweet-smelling head of hers, but there's a difference between liking, loving or being infatuated with someone. The human body is wired to experience infatuation. It's that amazing, tingly, over-the-moon sensation that tends to last only a matter of months. It's nature's way of making sure you stay together long enough to reproduce [source: Pease].
It's also a play -- three months or a year from now she may look at you blankly, realizing there's not a single quality she admires in you [source: Pease]. In short, she never liked you, but she was infatuated with you. But, hey, infatuation is like a legal drug, and three months to a year is an eternity in some youthful relationships. If her infatuation with you is good enough, enjoy it while it lasts. Just don't reproduce!
