Romeo and Juliet: Love or Infatuation.
were NOT in love, but instead were infatuated. It seemed that Romeo and
Juliet were constantly looking for sex. People in love are patient, and usually
Romeo and Juliet didn’t think about the consequences and in act
2, scene 3 Romeo says that if he’s caught he would gladly die. When Juliet takes
to marry Paris instead, maybe Romeo wouldn’t be there to open the tomb and she
would suffocate, but she didn’t care, instead she took the elixir and didn’t
care if she died.
Those who are infatuated want only sex in a relationship. In act
when they next meet they want only sex before they knew each others name. When
they saw each other to be married at Friar Lawerence to be married they couldn’t
get off each other. The only reason Romeo went to Manteca was to sneak into
Juliet’s room to spend the night.
People who are in love are usually friends first. Romeo and
Juliet knew each other two days before they were married. when they first met
they had to ask around and find out the others name. On the balcony Juliet
barely knows his name and already she was talking about her ?love? for Romeo.
Romeo got away from his friends just to see Juliet again and he heard her
talking about him.
see that Romeo and Juliet were infatuated instead of in love.
