Lust is when you crave ONLY their body. Love is when you crave every single damn thing...good and bad! I really do know the difference between the two. Lust is when I feel nothing but a sexual attraction for another. Lust hasn't happened to me often... but I know what that is. It's when all I can see is the person's beauty and that's it! Any flaws, I try not to see them or pretend they're not there... or just say, "Whatever. It's not like I'm going to marry this guy." But with love... that is different! I can see the flaws of a person, and it doesn't bother me much. I accept and love the person as they are. And the attraction isn't just for satisfaction, it's a real passionate need to be close to them, as much as possible. It's when I want to touch their soul and stay there forever. When I am love, I can say that I would die for them and mean it! And I would walk through hell and high waters to get to them! When it's just lust, I don't put much effort into it. I really don't care to touch their soul and if I can't get to them, eh... Oh, well. I don't really care. The thought of dying for them is laughable and I don't even care to put myself in harms way for them either.
