Is this a familiar question? Yes, it is. It is nothing uncommon now. But what is this all about? It is not an easy question though. People tend to get confused because of new feelings, new environments, as well as social pressure at our college, universities or even at workplace. What attracts you to that special person? What makes you want a romantic relationship with this person but not others?
What do you see in this relationship? What do you want from it? All these questions are really important, and you should give it a deep thought. Some couples ended their relationship in a sad and tragic way when they misunderstand the concept of love and lust, thus felt being taken for granted. I will explain briefly on the concept of love and lust here.
One of the most misunderstood quasi-love feelings is LUST. Lust is an extreme powerful and intense feeling of sexual desire for someone. It is mainly sexual in nature and we often lust after people whom we do not know well and yet we feel comfortable fantasizing about. We want their companion and we want to get close to them intimately, rather than genuine caring.
People tend to confuse lust for love as they thought lust is a part of love; people make love when they are in love, thus leading them a confused thought of lust or love. Lust is about physical attraction and acting only on physical attraction and desire.
What about love then? If love is without sexual attraction, what is love all about? Well, love is a concept of much more than physical desire and it is definitely not lust! Love is also about caring, commitment, trust, emotional compatibility and it is a magical feeling!
Love is not about conflicts, jealousy, doubts but love is an undeniable positive feeling. It is all about giving and surrendering your heart totally to your loved one, knowing that he/she is the one for you, that he/she will never break your heart and will treat you better than you will.
Love is always a positive feeling unlike lust, when guilt and insecurity happen.
I do hope that the explanation is clear enough for you to differentiate love and lust. Do the right thing! And guys do share your thoughts or personal experience using the comment form below. Thanks :)
