rational person: "But she slept with your brother's fiancee, could it perhaps be lust?"
me: "But I obsessed over my love for her for thirteen years, only to find out it wasn't going to happen! I didn't need to have sex with her, I just wanted to be near her, to hold her and squeeze her and cover her with little kisses. I wanted her to love me like she said she did. I dreamed I would marry this girl one day. That's not lust! Lust is for freaks!"
rational person: "Like her?"
Often confused with love.
Lust is not love if you don't wish to anything other than have sex with someone.
The feeling between the two of you is so magnetic and strong that you can't contain it.
It's not just sex. It's the want and the need to be physically close to someone that you feel so passionately about it's unreal.
DO NOT confuse with love if you know what's good for you.
