Romeo and Juliet thesis statement help?

I need to write a persuasive essay about how Romeo and Juliet were just infatuated with each other and were not truly in love. I have my evidence to make my thesis statement, but I need a little help with putting it together. Here are my choices to use as evidence in the statement to prove that R&J were only infatuated with each other ( I need to use three):
1. Romeo was in 'love' with Rosaline, but quickly fell in 'love' with Juliet when he saw her beauty
2. Romeo and Juliet declared their love for each other without actually getting to know each other
3. Romeo was in love with being in love( he just wanted to love someone)
4. They fell in love with each others appearances

Also, I don't want to make my evidence too redundant. Here is how I need my thesis statement to be constructed: Although some people may argue otherwise, I believe that Romeo and Juliet were just infatuated with each other because ................, ...................., and...............................
Thank You!!!!! Smile

#1 and #4 are similar.

Maybe make a statement as to their youth and inexperience in the area of human relationships. After all, they're both teens.

I would use 1 &2. They are solid, 3&4 are speculative.

You could mention how completely disillusional they were by 1) over- looking their families rivalry, 2) putting themselves above their families, something along that line.
