I think there's a huge difference between lust and love. Lust is a thing of the body, and perhaps also sometimes the mind (via fantasies). It is influenced by physical things like hormones, not by emotions. Love is something entirely different. It is above and beyond all that is earth and flesh. It exists inside the soul, and in what we call the "heart" or "emotions". It is not temporary like lust. While lust might fade away once it's been fulfilled, love does not, rather it grows and evolves.

Love comes from above the belt. Lust comes from below it.

Lust is a biological temporal need of soul and body and love is eternal need of soul and heart. Its difference is like this: Lust is a drop of a dew and love is whole water of all oceans, lust is a small part of a sand, love is all sand of all deserts. Hope you will understand its different now. But the example is for a true love, not a love for making a lust...lol

Lust has to do with desire. And love has to do with feelings. You can have one without the other, but it is better to put them together.

I think there is Lust being something you just want at that moment in your life and Love being something that you want for the rest of your life :)
