LOVE VS. LUST: What’s the Difference?


Are you in love, or is it lust? Lust is short-term fun; love is for the long haul. Even though the two sometimes masquerade as each other, you should be able to tell the difference. But if not, here are some clear signs of both love and lust:
• You want to spend quality time together other than sex.
• You get lost in conversations and forget about the hours passing.
• You want to honestly listen to each other's feelings and make each other happy.
• He or she motivates you to be a better person.
• You want to get to meet his or her family and friends.
• You're totally focused on a person's looks and body.
• You're interested in having sex, but not in having conversations.
• You'd rather keep the relationship on a fantasy level and not discuss real feelings.
• You want to leave soon after sex rather than staying for breakfast and talking the next morning.
• You are lovers, but not friends.
