What is the difference between lust and love?
Hi Bellar, you have asked a really great question and a common one too. Love is defined as "an intense feeling of deep affection," whereas lust is defined as "a strong sexual desire." The difference is that lust is basically just about the physical whereas love is more affection.
“Lust is about a physical or sexual attraction whereas love might encompass lust, but it's more emotional and is about actually caring for the other person,” Dr. ... That's lust.” Love, Voeller explains, is deeper. “You're emotionally attached to their wellbeing and outcome,” she says.
