How do you tell the difference between love and lust?

Lust is when you only find someone sexually attractive. Love is when you want to spend every moment with someone, because you can't stop thinking of them.

Lust is when someone just wants you, like for sex. Love is a genuine liking to someone that often has nothing to do with sex :)

lust is a need for something that you probably dont need.

Lust is ....more like loving ONLY someone's looks where as love is more like loving someone for who they are.

If you feel it in your heart it's Love, if you feel it in your loins it's Lust.

I love my wife. I lust after warm chocolate chip cookies with a scoop of ice cream, melting slowly, on the top...(hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry optional)

Hey pal, you got your lust and I have mine.

HAHAHA! Too funny guys! Although I have to say that Mikale's lustful "scene" of desirable baked goods and gooeyness is not so strange... I can easily imagine it combined with a more "standard" scene... I think I'll leave it at that. ^.-

Lust is a physical attraction that caters to sexual desires. Love is deeper; it is an emotional AND physical AND social connection. Love is an enduring desire for companionship, and there are many levels of love-- love for a friend, love for a brother or mom, love for God, and love for a boyfriend/girlfriend or spouse, among others. When most people mention love, however, they mean the romantic kind... and all (adult) romantic (aka loving) relationships have elements of lust. You can love someone AND feel lustful at the same time, as a component of that loving relationship-- but when lust is the primary drive, the relationship loses the deep and meaningful connection that love offers. Some adults are content to have a relationship of sorts that is purely physical, where lust is the primary attraction and love is rarely a component... but that's a different story, for another time and place and question. Hope this helps <3

Lust is the start of a relationship, love is what makes it last forever.

Time will tell you because we think we are in love when we feel the lust (because our pheromones and hormones are doing their thing). The only difference is when we stop lusting and get used to each other more we will know love is there only in its comfort and general happiness. Loving begins with wanting more for the person you are with than you want for yourself, not being afraid to take care of yourself without losing your relationship, and giving only up to the point where it would be more than you would have left to keep for yourself. Lust will end, love can last.

Hard sometimes to tell the difference but most answers are really great! There's a fine line that separates the two!

Well love is not a feeling, but rather a decision. A decision to spend the rest if your life showing someone everyday how much they mean to you, and having those actions reciprocated. It's knowing that even at that persons worst they still bring out your best. It's having a base foundation to build a healthy relationship upon. A foundation that was built and is maintained at all times by both parties involved. A foundation comprised of trust, communication, compromise, commitment, and mutual attraction. Without anyone of these a relationship can crumble and the decision to love begins to deteriorate. But if you both decide to truly love one another; you will both spend the rest of your lives working hard to maintain that foundation. You can hang all the bs "feelings" on it you want, but that's what love really is.

Love is when you are willing to lay down your life for the other. Lust is when you just to lie down with the other.
