    Faking it means you begin to hate it in the long run.

Its why you can 'tell' when couples start being more accustomed to each other, and less intense towards each other. Even when they're being genuine, it is impossible to maintain it forever.

    Passion means different things to different people. I tend to think of it as something deep that comes from the soul.

    There might be some types that could fake it for some period of time but generally this strikes me as showing a lack of integrity. Why do such a thing? You're not being true to yourself and I don't see how it does anything for others.

    That's really the thing with faking passion. If your emotions are swept up by the fake emotion of others and you are snapped by reality it really burns. And if others are swept in your own forced emotion you are punished by your own mind.

    Though, I reckon real emotions can be amped with reckless abandon.
