- You should know that yours is lust in case you are in the habit of establishing relationships that start off in a great way but die soon tragically. A good pointer to this is when you establish three or four relationships in a year. Being in a true love relationship means keeping a relationship for long, which can be for a year or two.
- Although it is not clear why different people get attracted to different people, physical attraction is often given as the reason why. This however presents a serious challenge. Simply getting attracted to someone because of his/her physique is a clear sign of lust. Although true love has some element of physical attraction, there is that deep feeling of care and concern for another person. You should know that yours is lust in case you look at a person’s physique and harbour the thought of sexual intimacy instead of the other way round.
- You should be able to know that yours is lust in case you view sex as a pleasure activity and not for procreation. Although true love also has element of pleasure in sex, it is usually accompanied by feelings of deep love and emotional attachment to someone else.
- You should be able to know that yours is lust and not true love if such values as respect, loyalty, admiration, support and emotional fulfilment lack in your relationship. These are very important values that can only be found in true love. Being in true love naturally brings in the elements of respect, loyalty, admiration, support and emotional fulfilment when you think of your partner.

Finding True Love
Is yours true love or lust? While there are those who establish relationships that last for a long time and possibly lead to marriage, there are those who establish relationships that do not last even months. Theirs are short-term relationships that do not have any basis. Simply put, there is true love and lust. Those whose relationships last establish their relationships on the basis of true love. On the other hand, those whose relationships do not last are only motivated by lust.
True love is like a lit dry oak wood. It takes time to catch the fire and burns slow with a steady flame. Furthermore, it burns for several hours. On the other hand, lust is like dry grass that catches fire in an instant. It burns hot very quickly before fading away just as fast as it caught fire. Although both dry grass and dry oak wood produce heat, dry grass produces intense heat, unlike dry oak that produces steady heat.
How do you ascertain whether yours is true love or lust? Both love and lust are fires. They evoke powerful feelings and emotions that can leave you confused. There are however ways through which you can tell whether yours is true love or simple lust.
There is no doubt that it is extremely easy to enter into a relationship full of lust and find it very difficult in establishing a relationship where true love exists. Contrary to common belief, you do not look for true love in someone else you are interested in, true love starts with you.
