Contextual explanation: In the beginning of a relationship, and maybe even before you have a relationship, you may have an obsession with the person you're in love with. You would think about him/her all day, you would want to talk to them all day, hang out all day, and see each other every day. You would want to do everything with them. But as time passes by, you would still love that person but not as much as you had before. The time period where you were obsessed is passionate love.
