In this paper we describe incorporating infatuation in multi-agent systems. Modal operators Ii+ for infatuation (the focusing on a single attractive or desirable characteristic of another agent and then considering the total agent as that one positive characteristic) and Ii– for the reverse infatuation (the focusing on a negative characteristic of an agent and then considering the total agent as that one negative characteristic) are defined. Some relationships between the operator Ii+ and the logical operators ∧, ∨, and ⇒ are characterized.
