Signs You’re In Lust And Not In Love

Discussion in 'Off-Topic' started by PurpleFox, Jul 6, 2015.

  1. 1. There’s more fire and less stability
    Love — real love — is about commitment and communication. These two important components lead to stability within a relationship. Of course, fire can be part of the equation, but when there’s lots of drama, chaos and more emotional gut blows than butterflies, you’re looking at a Please or Register to view links.

    2. You focus more on the outside than inside
    I could stare at C for hours. I was so enamored with his beauty. To me, he was gorgeous from head to toe without a single flaw to be found. I was obsessed with his beauty, and relished in the fact that I got to be seen in public with him and got to “tap that” at the end of the night.

    3. You prefer the fantasy
    From the beginning, I knew C and I didn’t have a future. We were far too similar to have been able to conduct a grown-up relationship, and he was never going to want me the way I wanted him. With him, I acted younger than I was for far longer than I should have — the drinking, acting out, immaturity and irresponsibility were quadrupled when we were together. I didn’t want a “grown-up” life with him; I loved the days on end of debauchery that allowed me to escape from reality.

    4. Why aren’t we having right now?
    Although I loved talking to C, because we did have so much in common, whenever we were together just hanging around or watching a môviê, I’d always catch myself wondering, “ Please or Register to view links?” I’m serious. I couldn’t give a damn about the ending to whatever môviê was on, if it meant we were having instead.

    5. You’re not friends
    C and I were not friends. For a long time we called each other “best friend,” but the truth was I was in lust, and he was just waiting for something else, something, to use his words, better. Despite knowing that, the lust kept me coming back for more.

    6. Intimacy doesn’t exist
    Although cuddling can be really satisfying and comforting when you’re in love, when you’re in lust a body against you just feels like dead weight. You’re also likely to ask yourself again, “Why aren’t we having right now?”

    7. You experience intense neediness
    If I didn’t get the attention I needed from C on a daily basis, I felt like my world was falling apart. Was he texting with someone else instead? Was he not home, as he said, but out with someone else? Having with someone else? Why isn’t he answering my calls? It was exhausting, to say the least.

    8. The feeling is conditional
    Anyone who’s been in love can attest to the fact that love is unconditional. Lust, however, is not. Lust is steeped in gratification without concern to anything else. I could easily sleep with someone other than C and not feel a twinge of regret, but if I were to do the same to the man I love, I’d never forgive myself. Lust has blurred boundaries as to what’s right; love kicks those blurred lines into place.
