    When you love someone, you want what is best for them.  You may desire them and think about making love with them.  But deep inside, you care about how they feel and what they want in life.  And it would break your heart for them to feel hurt or pain.  That is love, passion follows.

    Lust is like a sugar rush.  It comes fast and is a high like no other, but it doesn't last long.  The crash always comes.  Love is more subtle, like a soft warm blanket.  It is not perfect, but lasts a lot longer.

    Darn good question and sometimes very hard to answer at first. I guess you'll find out if you're still together when the honeymoon is over and start fighting over who has to take out the garbage. If you can survive real life, then it's real.

    Love lasts, lust fizzles out (although it takes on a new dimension when you're in a long-lasting relationship!)

    Lust is more impulsive while love tends to bring future survival and happiness to mind. That's one way to look at it, anyway.

    The combination of the two, however, is intoxicating.

    If you're asking this question it's lust. If you really love someone you genuinely care about them, their interests and what is best for them, you may also having feelings of love towards them but you will KNOW that  you love them.

    Lust is just when you want to sleep with someone.
    Whereas love is a more lasting feeling, where you want to spend time, think about that person constantly, make love and so on.
