limerance – the initial exhilarating rush of falling in love; the state of "being in love".Limerance, unlike 'infatuation', does not carry the connotation of emotional immaturity.In contrast to "loving someone", limerance implies obsessive thinking about the limerent object and acute longing for reciprocation.Coined by Dorothy Tennov in her book Love and Limerance (1979; recently reprinted). It will be interesting to see if this word enters the vernacular.
