Is it LOVE or LUST?
Do you really know the difference between love and lust? If someone is in a relationship or just admiring somebody from afar, it is difficult to determine what you truly feel for that person. How do you spot if it is a true love? You will know that it is love if you are committed to your partner for the rest of your life. You are with that person for a long time and very much aware of his or her flaws and you can’t even imagine life without that person despite your differences. You don’t need anything from this individual but you still need to stay his or her side. In terms of physical intimacy, you feel closer o the person after having sex and you always try thing to keep the flame alive in your relationship. If that person is the one that you think of when you want to share your innermost thoughts, then it must be love.
Lust on the other hand is defined as a strong sexual desire or overwhelming crave for sexual pleasure like a sex toy. If you are in a relationship and you are looking for someone to boost your ego or you are looking to catch someone to go to bed with wearing that fancy lingerie, maybe what you feel is lust. You need this person because you benefit from him or her sexually or any other things. You don’t even see yourself settling down with this person and can’t act naturally if your with him or her; this is just infatuation or just a simple lust. For some, they can’t deny the fact that they are longing for that lust that helps them to increase their confidence and to feel that they are desirable. Actually men are more inclined to have one night stands while women then to connect love and lust to a higher degree like romance. Like men focus on body parts and things which are pleasing to the eyes, women are more on security and serious matters
Nowadays, it is really confusing to define love but in this modern time you can actually feel in love even without having regular sex, this is applicable especially for partners who have been together for a long time already. For them, it is no longer the physical attraction that keeps them together but their attachment and commitment to one another that makes their relationship stronger. We now want our partner to give us both stability and affection, respect for our own individuality. We need to provide all the security to our partner that no matter what happens the relationship will stand through the test of time. It is really a challenge to survive especially now that a lot of temptations are present and it is truly impossible to sustain the desire to grow old together unless you really want to make it happen. We all know that love is a wonderful feeling that can be achieved if you have trust and respect for each other.
