Let's say that Person A is friends with Person B, and A is in love with B, but B does not return this affection. In one universe Person A decides s/he cannot continue to be friends with B because it is too hard to be "just friends" when s/he really wants so much more. In another universe A feels that it would be better to remain friends with B even if nothing more can ever come of it, because A respects and cares for B so much that s/he would rather be friends than not know her/him at all.
In which situation would you say that A really loves B and in which does it seem to be just an infatuation? Or could it really be love in both cases and some people would just handle the situation differently? I know it's not much to go on, but I'd just like your gut instinct.
