Lust is a powerful and destructive emotion. Many people fall victim to it, and as a result, they struggle in romantic relationships. Lust is not true, genuine feelings for someone — but rather, it is purely physical and based on one’s physical attributes.

Whereas, lust — as I mentioned earlier — is a purely physical emotion as it is based merely on the desire for a person’s body, rather than any interest in getting to know them as a person. With this in mind, examine the purpose of your relationship. Do you see yourself spending the rest of your life with that person?
