lust is the thing inside our head that makes us look at other women and gives us fantasies about them.
love is what makes us want only the women we are with, no other women can replace her and she is the most beautiful person even if she isnt

Lust is more sexual, whereas love is more characterized by romance and actual attachment to the person, coupled by friendship. Lust is definitely more physical, and is more sexual, whereas love, according to my psychology textbook, tends to be equal parts romance, attachment, and attraction.

I’ve never found the answer. My cynical theory is that both are simply graduated and evolved social tools by which society can profit and better control citizens. -One major reason i’d believe this is that you can notice that neither of these ‘emotional’ states are rational nor scientifically calculable. Since society generally advocates both love and lust this invariably means that society advocates individuals devote huge chunks of their lives to emotions that they cannot even predict or understand. Literally closing your eyes and picking stocks- then putting all of your money into it.

Only a fool would allow themselves to indulge in love or lust- and it seems society has been successful with the prospect so far, as would be predicted.

It takes about two years before you know if it is love or just physical attraction. The excitement at the beginning of the relationship starts to wane after that time and it is then that you find that you are either very bored with the person, who that you actually care about them.

I agree that time is essential to loving someone. In order to Love someone you have to know them. You only know them through spending quality time with them. Lust confuses physical attraction with emotions that are usually associated with long term bonding. You rationalize that because you are attracted to this person you must love them. I.E. They have this quality that I love, this quality I love, … BUT TRUE LOVE. REAL GENUINE LOVE comes when you find someone you get to know that may not meet your expectations or may not have qualities you even like but still end up bonding on a level that is above all that.
