Are you in love? Or is it just good sex? Wondering how to spot the love and lust difference? After all, both can overlap sometimes. And love is incomplete without lust, isn’t it?
British writer C.S Lewis says,“Lust is a poor, weak, whimpering, whispering thing compared with that richness and energy of desire which will arise when lust has been killed.” Another saying goes like, “Lust without love is pleasure. Lust with love is passion. Love without lust is pristine. Love with lust is poetry.”
So, is it lust or love? Are you mistaking overwhelming physical attraction for love? Take this easy quiz, consisting of just seven questions to find out…
Finally, counselor Neelam Vats says, “People who are in love generally feel a powerful sense of empathy toward their beloved. Feeling the other person’s pain as their own and being willing to sacrifice anything for the other person comes naturally when you love someone unconditionally.” So, if that sense of empathy is missing, maybe it’s just lust.
