One of the most annoying things about human sexuality is that sometimes, our bodies and minds cannot tell when you are properly in love with someone, or whether you are simply in lust with them! Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and a place for both of these feelings, you don’t always want to jump into a relationship; sometimes you just want to have fun, but it can be helpful to know which road you are going down when it happens! Here are four ways to tell the difference between lust and love.

1. Connection

Connection is a big factor in distinguishing love from lust, in the sense of connection with this person to people in your social and family circles. For example, if all you want to do is spend alone time in the bedroom with the person, it is probably lust, but if you have a desire to introduce them to your friends and family and incorporate them into your wider life, then love might be on the cards.
