    I def think it is possible for lust to turn into love. It is very easy to cross those lines of feelings. However, going from love to lust seems a bit more difficult. Lusting after someone you love sounds great.. but once you love, can your truely tone it down?

    I agree with mamadrama, Lust can turn into Love but once it has Lust is then Lost swallowed by complete intense emotion.

    Yes I think it's very possible to go from Lust to Love.
    All it takes is having one deep discussion to see some other value within the person. A lot of times this will happen if one person is having a problem and the other helps out in some way even if it's only listening. It opens a new the door.
    However this may also lead to regret down the road.

    There have been many times when people knew full well that the person they were having sex with was not "marriage material" or even "significant other" material from the beginning. Once they let emotiions come into the picture they find themselves trying to "change water into wine" and dealing with the frustrations that come with it. Not everyone is able to deal with having "booty calls" , "friends with beneifts" or "no strings attached" arrangements. They cross the line easily.

    Going from Love to Lust is more of a challenge.
    Most people are physically attracted or lust after a person they are interested in gettting to know. To love someone first means the relationship came about after a "friendship" was established. Most likely you didn't think of them as being "Hot". Odds are you never will think of them in that way no matter how much you love them. However it doesn't mean you can't have a passionate relationship.

    Literal meanings of lust and love are poles apart but when you spend lots of time your lust can easily turn into love. And when the partners are in love, they will duck into the depth of lust.

    Love is universal. Lust is certain variant of love. You can love anybody. But, lust you can't. Lust in many cases is the first step towards love. You come for lust and remain for love.

    I think those two go together just like that anyway.

    When either of the two is lacking in a relationship, something is wrong.
