How to know if it’s love or lust? Every relationship has physical intimacy between the two partners. But if there is only physical intimacy in any relationship then that relationship has no love in there. It is only lust. If your partner admires your body and your soul, praises you even when you’re sick or in your pyjamas. Then this is true love. He/ she admires you and your body in every way. But if your partner wants you to be well dressed every time and only compliments you for your body, then my dear you need to check into your relationship status and question yourself whether it is actually love or lust. Because anyone who admires your body but not you is definitely not in love with you.

Neither your partner will take interest in your verbose nor they would pay attention to your silly jokes.
4. Solving issues
Every relationship has its ups and downs but how you handle them tells all about your love status. When your partner lusts over you, they would always threaten to leave you in distressing situations.

There are certain signs you’re in love with her or him. If you love someone you want to make them happy. Everything that is related to them excites you. Be it their favorite movie, music series, color, food and everything else. But if you are with someone who is simply attracted towards you will never try to know about you. They will hardly care about your choices. Lust never lets you adore anyone, it only results in a temporary relationship where the two partners are merely connected by physical admiration. So, if your partner is least concerned about you, then you need to think twice before planning your future with them.
