*Lust is what first brings people together. It’s that initial desire to be with the person, while love is the desire to stay with him or her.
*Love commonly starts out as lust and the two might even have an overlapping stage at some point in the relationship or lust may never turn into love.Love develops more with time and separation.
*Infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by unreasoning passion or love; addictive love.
