Being in love. What exactly does that mean? According to dictionary.com, the definition of love it to have profound passion and affection for one another. Being in love is the greatest thing a person can experience. To be in love is to never want to be apart from that person. When one of the people in the relationship is away, the other aches inside, when they come back, their heart beats faster in excitement. They can be their selves around each other and never have to hide who they really are. If one gets injured, the other is there whenever they need them to help and even if they aren’t hurt, they are still there if they need something.
Now lust is completely different. According to merriam-webster.com, the definition of lust is to have an intense longing or sexual desire for another person.

If they only come over at night and on weekends and leave after getting what they want, are completely different around their partner then when they are around their friends, and never like to take them out or to introduce them to their family and close friends, then the relationship is basically just a lustful one.
