I want to know is there are one out here who can tell me the difference between love and lust. Can you love and don't have sex... in your whole life. I don't want lectures... i want real experience.
Many people say that if you want to know whether you are in love or not you should try to separate from him/her for a while and if you still remember him/her all the time then you are in love... do you think same or it is just a makeup by hollywood movies.. just like kissing can tell you if a person loves you or not

Lust is purely physical/sexual. All you want from the person is sex, no emotions involved. You have insane sexual chemistry, nothing more.
Love is when you're completely taken with the person as a whole. You get along well in terms of personality, giving each other butterflies. Love also sometimes grows from what starts as lust, or at least love will almost always happen alongside lust. Love is when the well-being and you relationship with this person and whether or not things are going well begins to take a higher priority to yourself and your own ego.
(If one partner is in love and the other is just in lust, nothing happens. Neither of them can give the other what they want. The one who is in lust will not want any sort of emotional attachment, only looking for NSA. The one who is in love will get sex, but may mistake that for receiving mutual emotional interest which they in reality are not going to be getting from someone who is just in lust with them.)1

Love is when you don't care about the sex but can spend a bit a second with them and it matters. Lust is sex first and spending time with them becomes a bit of a drag cause amount of effort it takes. From my experience, true and real love allows you to stay attracted to the person with caring and honest heart. Where as lust your unsure where to place them. You see flaws that makes think twice about committing to a relationship.1
