Unrequited infatuation without unhappiness and jealousy -- too good to be true?

Got infatuated with co-worker. She is getting married this Saturday. Strangely I don't feel jealous and I am genuinely happy for her. This is strange to me as it contradicts all my previous experiences. That is excellent but what is the catch? Is it possible that some kind of delayed catastrophe will happen? [more inside]

I'm caught up in love, he's now holding back so how can I maintain my cool?

So I've been dating this really cool gentlemen for 2 months. We are taking things slow but I find myself getting caught up with him. This is a problem. It's a problem because now he's holding back a bit whereas he was stronger in pursuing me before. Can anyone share advice as to how I can keep my cool so he doesnt become disinterested? Also, how will I know when a man has become disinterested? I'm rambling, sorry but when i become infatuated or "in love" I can't think straight and I lose my sense of self. Save this poor girl from herself. Ha!

Can love without infatuation still be "real love"?

I read this question about how to tell the difference between love and infatuation. Most of the answers seem to say that love and infatuation feel the same in the beginning but love is what lasts in the long run. My question is, is it possible to fall in love with someone with out really experiencing true infatuation with them? [more inside]

Im infatuated with this girl who I knew I couldn't have from the start. She has a partner. She is more than 10 years younger than me. She lives in another country. But I wake up with thoughts of her every morning. I construct new theories about what she was really thinking. [more inside]
