That's a good question cuz I think many people get the two terms confused. I would say lust is purely sexual desire to have something or someone, when you are Just physically/sexually attracted to someone & all u think about is wanting to sleep with them or constantly thinking about their body. Someone might think so much about a person that they might say to themesleves, "if i dont have his/her body, i will die" or "god that guy or woman is so sexy, i got to hit that or ill go crazy". These are over exaggerated examples but im trying to drive the point that the sexual desire & tension is strong, which I feel is lusting. That's why they say ur lusting after someone. This is why I think when people get together & sleep together its fun for just that night, then the feeling of lust is over cuz it was such a strong emotion built up in u for so long, so after sleeping together the excitement & tension is over.
I think people get the two mixed up cuz u can be sexually attracted to someone u love and want to sleep with them but they think cuz i desire that person so much or it feels so good to be with that person sexually, i must love them. Only thing is it think love is something that gradually forms over sometime & Love Is more of a deeper emotion & connection, which usually can happen in a committed relationship. Also, when in love u want to be with that person forever & be committed to them, more than just sex. Also, love is self-sacrificing, and u do anything for that person. Its not just emotion but its also shown through ones actions, such as taking care of them. You show them u love them, not just only say it. Sorry for long explanation, Overall, i say the difference is that lust is more of a sexual desire & love is more of a deeper emotion and long lasting commitment to a person, not just sexually. Hope this helps. :)0
