Love and lust find their way to us in sometimes unpredictable ways.
The two feelings can feel very similar when you’re dating someone, but there are definitely some defining differences between the two.

When you’re in love, you see a future together.
But when in lust, the future hardly comes to mind, and when you do think of the future, it rarely includes them.
You have to try hard to see how living together and starting a family together is going to work. With love, it’s a future without them that seems odd.
When you’re in love, you truly like your partner.
But when in lust, that appreciation is much more superficial. It’s purely a physical attraction that can’t last. Love can, however.
