At this moment, are you in love?
Eh, no. I have a huge crush on another individual, but I wouldn't call it love.
I respect that you can identify the difference.
So, would you say you're in lust?
Ebola - no. Love is such a strong word, and while my feelings could likely be described as love - I hold back the usage of that word due to the complexity of the relationship, and the fact that it would be one-sided.
I agree... I chose smitten bc that's a perfect word for it... but not in love. maybe it'll develop into something closer to love, but it's early ;)
