Love vs. Lust
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been if love exists or is it just lust. I am curious in learning about this topic and whether or not it’s true, since in movies and books it makes it seem like it’s real. I know that many people may feel that only lust exists but some people say that love also exists. From what I have heard, many people are in a relationship because of the way the person looks but once you start to know the person very well, it turns into love. Now that’s just what I've heard, it may or may not be true.
One thing that I know for sure about Love vs. Lust is that many people search for love all their lives but they never seem to find the right person. Now, I have studied my share of Human Interaction and it seems that human needs each other to feel better about themselves. Personally, it’s funny to me how many people confuse love with lust.
Love vs. Lust was important because many people have fallen in love in the past and they wanted to know if it was love or lust. I know that if a person is focused only on another person’s looks and body that is lust but if the person is interested in what the other person has to say without interrupting, then that is definitely love.
Being that I didn't have a lot of background information on Love vs. Lust, I chose to do some research on the topic. As I searched for blogs and news articles on Google, I came across this one article:How to tell the http://ezinearticles.com/?Is-it-Lust-or-Love----How-to-Tell-the-Difference &id=51669.This article provided a lot of information and opinions on Love vs. Lust. Some people felt that Love vs. Lust was important because lot of relationships deal only with lust but you don’t have to only on lust on you depend on choosing your mate. A quote from the source is : “Physical attraction is an important factor but must never be the only factor you rely upon when choosing a mate”
This statement made me feel happy to know many people also have the same question.
In another article http://www.psychologytoday.com /blog/emotional-freedom/201108/lust-vs-love-do-you-know-the-difference there was this one statement “However, real love, not based on idealization or projection, requires time to get to know each other.”that made me nod my head in agreement with the writer.This is so true because when you get to know the person very well, if you get to know your partner the the two of you might know how true loves feels.
All of this makes me think that love is real and that it takes to know that you really love a person. Also it takes time for a person to know that they really loves another.
