maiden phase in which we found her—itself a marginalized identity that in Butler’s imaginings can lead to torture, rape and enslavement—grants her the creative agency to build a philosophy and a community.

During the infatuation phase, also known as lust you feel exhilaration, passion, and elation when you and your lover are together. Neurochemicals in the brain, such as dopamine and norepinephrine—also known as the “feel-good” chemicals—are released.1 These chemicals make us giddy, energetic, and euphoric, sometimes leading to decreased appetite and insomnia. You actually can be so “in love” that you can’t eat or sleep. The first sign that the infatuation phase is wearing off is a sense of disillusionment.

Some of the same traits that you found so attractive at first start to show their downside. (For example, someone who seemed confident and decisive at first might now seem rude and close-minded.)
