Near the end of the scene, as Juliet is leaving him, Romeo says, “O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?” (Shakespeare 2.2.136), implying that he is wanting more from Juliet than words, a hint which Juliet may get, but does not act upon.

Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs; Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes..” (Shakespeare, I.1.23), it is clear that his obsession with Rosaline is purely surface-level-- later on in this same scene, it is revealed that Rosaline is taking a vow of chastity, and after that, it could be inferred that Romeo does not know Rosaline well at all. He is simply interested in the concept of her, rather than being in true love with her.
