Are You In Love Or In Lust?
Are you in love, or is it lust? Or is the one that you are knocking boots with seeing you as the love of their life or a booty call?
At the beginning of a relationship, it can be hard to tell whether you’re in lust or love; whether he or she may be “The One,” or merely a hook up. Love and lust are dangerously intertwined. Lust is all down to hormones, nature’s way of bringing the opposite sexes together to procreate. Without lust, the human race would soon diminish. Problem is that lust (often mistaken for love at first sight) causes one to think with the nether regions and throw all reason and logic to the wind. When the next lucky person catches your eye, determine whether you in love or lust (and vice versa!).
It’s Lust If…
You Are Totally Focussed On Bedding It
Even before you spoke, you were already imagining what he or she looks like without any clothes. When you finally get together on a date, you find yourself continuously calculating how to get him or her into bed rather than actually listening to what he or she is saying.
You Don’t Care If You Have Anything In Common
You do not even know his/ her surname, if or where they work or that you actually share the same obsession in watching Foresenic Investigators back to back!
It’s Nothing But A Booty Call
The only time that you think about this person is when you’re on a loose end or it’s 2.00 am in the morning and you hear the distant forlorn cry of the booty call.
Sex & Run!
You have just had sex and you are now calculating how long you can make your excuses and hightail it out of there. No, this is not about ettiquette. This is about not killing your sex-on-tap when you feel like hooking up with him or her again.
On The Quiet
You have not told your family of friends (except for the quick boast!) anything about them.
It’s Love If…
The Chemistry Is Sizzling Hot!
Hours pass like minutes whilst you are happily lost in the mundane details of their day. You are just happy to be there.
He/ She is Totally Gorgeous
As far as the rest of the world can see, he or she looks like the backend of a bus, but to you, your amour is the most be beautiful person you have ever seen.
You Are Planning A Future Together
You experience the strange feeling that your life would be totally empty without her. You tell your friends and family that she may be The One, and you’re even thinking about marrying her.
You Are More Romantic
Find yourself suddenly sending flowers, planning romantic candlelit dinners and leaving love notes in their work bag to be found later in the day? You have got the love bug!
He/ She Is Always On Your Mind
Is he/ she the first thing on your mind when you wake up and last thought as you drift off to sleep at night? You know that you have got it bad when you are bordering on stalker activity with endless texts and phone calls, not to mention the iphone screensaver set to the photo of you-know-who!
Hey, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of lust now and again, if that is what you want. If it is a relationship you seek, embrace the lust but dig deeper to find out more to deepen the relationship to something more meaningful!
