Tennov notes how limerence "may dissolve soon after its initiation, as in an early teenage buzz-centered crush", but she is more concerned with the point when "limerent bonds are characterized by 'entropy' crystallization as described by Stendhal in his 1821 treatise On Love, where a new love infatuation perceptually begins to transform ...[and] attractive characteristics are exaggerated and unattractive characteristics are given little or no attention ... According to Tennov, there are at least two types of love: limerence, which she describes as, among other things, "loving attachment", and "loving affection", the bond that exists between an individual and his or her parents and children.Tennov suggests that feelings of limerence can be intensified through adversity, obstacles, or distance—'Intensification through Adversity'.A limerent person may have acute sensitivity to any act, thought, or condition that can be interpreted favorably.Basically, it is the state of being completely carried away by unreasoned passion or love, even to the point of addictive-type behavior.Usually, one is inspired with an intense passion or admiration for someone.Other characteristics include acute longing for reciprocation, fear of rejection, and unsettling shyness in the limerent object's presence.In cases of unrequited limerence, transient relief may be found by vividly imagining reciprocation from the limerent object.

During the height of limerence, thoughts of the limerent object (or person) are at once persistent, involuntary and intrusive. appear to be genetically driven': All events, associations, stimuli, and experiences return thoughts to the limerent object with unnerving consistency, while conversely the constant thoughts about the limerent object define all other experiences.She notes that one form may evolve into the other: "Those whose limerence was replaced by affectional bonding with the same partner might say ...'We were very much in love when we married; today we love each other very much'".If a certain thought has no previous connection with the limerent object, immediately one is made.Limerent fantasy is unsatisfactory unless rooted in reality, because the fantasizer may want the fantasy to seem realistic and somewhat possible.
