Love or Lust

What's the difference?

What is love and what is lust, is it possible to confuse the two? How do you know when you love somebody and is it possible to stop loving somebody?

Love or Lust
I think love is something that transcends lust and you can also have love without lust, for instance love of a child. I think that when you are younger and your hormones are going full blast lust can override everything else, but as you develop (I mean get older) your feelings become a bit more mature as well. I don't know if you can stop loving someone, I was going to say that if they are no longer part of your life maybe you can, but then I immediately thought that you can continue to love, say, a dead parent, with the same intensity as when they were alive.

Love or Lust
Lust for me is when someone looks upon another person purely in a sexual way, whereas when you truly love someone the feelings you feel are a lot deeper and not so urgent.

I think all relationships start off with infatuation, which is a strong feelings of hormones and like for each other. It's the 'can't eat, can't sleep' syndrome. IMO this is what a lot of people mistake for 'love at first sight'. It's a necessary part of human nature to attract each of us to potential mates. But the real deep feelings of love come after knowing that person, and then wanting to put them before ourselves. Smile

Oooh good question Claire Smile

I suppose that lust is a more fundamental desire than love, which, as others have said tends to develop more slowly. I'd say that lust is primarily about fulfilling your own needs and base desires whereas love is about sharing and fullfillment for both.

That said, lust can be pretty fullfilling for both too :w00t:

Lust wares off after about two weeks
Or as soon as one of them starts farting in bed

Infatuation last about three to twelve months
Less if someone better comes along

My personal rule of thumb is this:

If you want to be with the person more than anyone else in the world, that's love.

If you want to shag them more than anything else in the world, that's lust.

If you want both, marry them :w00t:

That sounds about right to me Floopy, I have fallen in LUST many times, but it has been purely for sex (what an old slapper Blush ) and usually the bloke has been a mate, but you just know its not b/f material, but ok for a shag.....

Love, I thought I had fallen in love a couple of times, but I cant have as I dont love them anymore.......I would wish any bad on them but it is of no consequence to me what happens to them now......

Thankfully I now have that happy balance of love and lust for himself :naughty: :wub: and for the 1st time EVER in a relationship, I feel I get the same back Big Grin
