Love & Hate

Love has many shades of meaning, but in its most general sense it is a strong, positive feeling about someone or something.

Infatuation is an intense, obsessive form of love. The object of infatuation is seldom out of one's thoughts for long, and is valued much more highly than other potential mates, to a degree which is usually inconsistent with a more objective assessment.

Hate is a strong, negative feeling about something. It usually stems from a resentment or a prejudice, which may in turn be based on real or imagined events or conditions.

In my opinion, hate is a waste of time and energy.
