Everyone knows what lust is.
Love has many varying levels and types - for example many men never come to the realization that their woman will NEVER love them like their mother did, and waste some or all of their life hoping and pining they can find one that will. Ain't never happening - romantic love and maternal love are very different.
For most people, love happens when the NRE wears off - new relationship energy or emotion. When the dust settles the relationship should mature into something deeper and more meaningful, or it simply fails.
And really, love is about GIVING, not what you'll GET. Too many are really confused about that as well. Family, marriage, children, is about being in a place in your life where you have SO MUCH life force you're ready to GIVE. To love and nurture. It's not about what kind of benefits you'll get out of it - that's a losing proposition.11
This is so obvious. Most people won't die for those they are just lusting after. Lust doesn't last and you are never content with lust and that is why cheating exsits. But people will die for someone they truly love. If someone loves you then they will feel like they don't need anyone else and they are fine with just you. In other words, they are content. Love lasts forever and if you were in a relationship with someone you loved, you probably don't love them romantically, but you probably still love them as a person and still want the best for them.40
Lust is sexual. Love is romantic. Ideally they go together.254
What Girls & Guys Said
One is physical infatuation and the other is emotionally driven.180
If I am motivated solely by lust, I am thinking of my physical pleasure in the moment and not thinking about any long term consequences for us as a couple. If I am making love, I am thinking about her pleasure as well as my own and I said trying to connect with her emotionally as well as sexually.10
Love is the affection that remains after 2 months of steady sex.10
The amount of knowing the person?10
Caring and trust.10
You got the f****** meme up and I don't understand why you're asking... It's pretty simple, lust is the physical attraction, love is the emotional connection. Lust comes first. sorry ladies but you got to get your foot in the door, looks are important but they are not the end-all be-all. Once you actually got the guy where you want them now it's time to turn on your charm, AKA personality. if you don't have any then guess what your foot in the door just turned into a one night stand he's gone the next day. Hope this answers the question for you.21
Love is long time commitment etc
And lust is ok.
But greed and materialistic plastic fakes
Sometimes. but anyway. From my past history I don't think in real life u or me would like each other because I don't have irl or online anyone that can be consistent in knowing things and saying what they know then following it through. Etc.
Spam. . can u divine what that is?

Rasperry pi etc.10
lust originally meant a disordered sexual desire where you view the other person as an object. Recently, it has been degraded to you only mean sexual desire. Which is a shame, because the more you can distinguish truce with your words the more you can understand reality.
Love on the other hand, is desiring the good of the other person, for their own sake.
So using the original definition of lust, it was only about selfish desires and satisfying those. But love is the opposite, because it's all about the other person.
Using the new colloquial definition of lust, is clear that it is only biological interest. But love is far deeper and far more lasting10
Think of yourself and your SO living together only having sex once a month, but quite happy together laughing, talking and having fun. This is LOVE. If you fell like you have to have sex every day or the relationship is doomed to die a horrible death, You don't love them it's LUST plain and simple,40
From an 'occult' perspective: lust is purely carnal and it's also objectifying, in the sense that it drives you to use the other person to satisfy animalistic sexual impulses. Lust is purely hedonistic and even transgressive. That's why it's one of the seven deadly sins.
Love is an untainted feeling and needs to be cultivated. In ancient cultures, it was done by trying to keep the mind and emotions 'clean'. In a nutshell, love is not animalistic. It's sacred. Consequently, sex needs to be treated the same way.30
She went out drinking with her girls and comes home. You clean her up (as in give her a shower), put a nightgown on her, send her to bed, clean up the bathroom, including toilet, sink, floor, walls. She gets up in the middle of it to cry on you and beg forgiveness for how "mean" she's been and how she never appreciates you (amazing how a night of her listening to her female friends bitch about men readjusts her attitudes for me), you send her back to bed. You get back to the bathroom. She gets up again. You send her back. Bathroom's clean. You get into bed and make sure you have earplugs, because she's snoring like ten boxer dogs. You only care that now she's safe and un-harmed.10
Love is when u truly love someone and u will never give up on that person and u will do all what it takes to keep a relationship with that person
Lust is when u don't want a relationship. And u just want sex or it is when u want a relationship just for that person body30
They are completely different things. Lust, or rather, wild mad sex, is absolutely fantascic. And it's wonderful when it exists within a loving relationship. But love is much, much deeper. Love is when you know all of a persons quirks, annoying habits, faults, and frailties and you love them more than ever. Love requires total trust and commitment. Love grows. Lust is more like infatuation that almost inevitably fades over a period of a few months.10
Love is driven by the desire to do what is best for the other person. Lust is driven by the desire to get in her pants, or to fill some emotional need of your own, at her expense. Love likes to see the other person succeed, to do well, and to have her reasonable needs and wants met. Lust likes to take control, to have the person.10
For me personally, feelings develop over time and eventually love starts to grow, but only when I know them on a deeper level.
Lust is superficial. I can lust after a guy and feel a longing for him even though I don't know him very well.20
Love is selfless, while lust is selfish.
When you love someone, you care about them in a selfless way and are willing to sacrifice for that person.
While with lust, it is a selfish desire to sleep with that person without any real care for them as a person.10
Love is when you learn how to respect, trust and forgive him not because he is your partner neither because he earns it... simply because he exist. both of your intention is to build something wonderful that grows each day.
Lust is temporary in which the person don't grow since he/she only want something temporary.20
Lust is superficial. A lot of people confuse the two especially since it's easy to get infatuated with someone you lust after but infatuation also isn't love. It's the same as having a crush on someone and you can have a crush on someone you barely know, however you cannot love someone unless you know them pretty deeply and have seen all sides of them and you still think they're the most amazing person AND you still feel lust for them.10
Lust is phsyical sex driven and Love is emotionally driven. With love you want more and put up with more. With lust once you've had enough sex you're done no longer need the BS that comes with that person...20
Lust is party sex.. love is slightly more personal think of it like a tree main trunk is man and woman but the branch is secondary love for ones family.. other branches relatives close friends partners then love for pets and all encompassing love our world as a whole..10

I don't see anyone saying what I feel, so here goes. Lust is where you want to be with the person. There's some kind of barrier between you, but you want them. Sometimes more than anything else in the world, and it can really feel like love. Or you can be telling yourself it is because you want it to work. But something's off.
Love? This is practically conjecture as it's based on hopes, secondhand information, and... I don't even know what, but I think I'm right. Love is where the person makes you feel like there's another being that wants the best for you, and you want the same for them. Love is knowing who a person is at their core, wholly appreciating them, and trusting them enough to be nothing but excited to see who they grow into next. Love is where you would see them hurt you, or be with another, or would give up anything of yourself, just to see them happy, and know they'll never make you. Love doesn't hold back. Love doesn't demand conditions. Love asks for understanding, and gives it. Love has patience, and gives it. Love is Truly having someone and giving yourself to them, and growing into something bigger together.
