Is it love

Q: Whenever I see a good looking girl, I find myself in love. Is that love or infatuation?
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
Well, time will tell you! First, find out whether they are in love with you or not. If that matches, it is a different story. If it doesn't match, that is a different story altogether. Either case, you will become mature. But don't keep falling in love. Rise in love! In love, you don't expect anything in return. If you want something in return, don't call it love. Then that's need. In a relationship there is a need, but there is no need in love. Love is your very nature. If it sounds too philosophical for now, just keep it in the background and relax. One day you will understand, when your heart breaks or when you realize you expected something too much, something will pop up from the background of the mind and try to save you.
