Is it love or lust?

It’s officially Valentine’s day and love is in the air. Well, more like in the restaurants, retail stores, and flower shops – but you know what I mean.   The day when love is on the minds of many people – single (who came up with Singles Awareness Day? I mean, really?) and coupled up people.

Last week we talked about the importance of passion in a relationship, especially if you want a long-lasting marriage. I often wonder how passion fuels the lust, that sometimes gets mistaken for love in the beginning.  How do you really know when you are falling in love or lust with someone?

What do you think the difference is between love and lust? Have you felt as if you have been in love and/or lust? Do you think the two “feel” the same or is there a notable difference?

Have you ever thought you were in love, only to discover later that you were mistaking it for lust? What did you do?

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!

Having a baby and repeatedly being pounded in a vengeful, mean spirited way by multiple dudes is not the same! That baby is in their minding his/her business waiting to slide out, not beat up the vaginal walls!

Leggs — No… She’s a “ho” after you’ve finished with her. She’s a “bytch” if she turns you down… :lol:

Only if you’ve honed your craft. If not, you’re just as crappy as the others trying to get their certification!!!

Actually, a real woman is one that can sleep with many, and still make you feel that you are the only one.

A friend of mine swears that a couple of his buddies used to hit the beach every year with some cards saying they were Oral Gynocologists and told the beach bunnies they were in town for a conference. Apparently worked pretty well.

Frankly I think a chick is smarter that’s bagged a gazillion dudes and makes you number gazillion and one and you’re none the wiser. You’re skinning and grinning cause you hit but you have no clue just how much nasty you ran up in. She’s nasty but you’re dumb and nasty.

These three women were sitting around one night talking about their boyfriends when they decided they would give their men nicknames based on kinds of soda. The first woman said: “I’m gonna call Tom ‘Mountain Dew’ because he is as strong as a mountain and always wants to do it!” The second woman said: “I’m gonna call Bruce ‘7-Up’ because he has seven inches and it is always up!” The third woman said: “I’m gonna call my man ‘Jack Daniels’. The other two women responded: “‘Jack Daniels’? But that’s a hard liquor.” The third woman replied: “THAT’S MY LEROY!”

PR – I have nothing but love for you men….Hey Simple Man!!….I just think it’s something to stand back and see/read when ya’ll are soooo quick to talk about a woman when really unless you REALLY know women and how capable they are at tricking, you shouldn’t laugh. Most times yeah you got azz but is the joke on them….or you? Most tricks ain’t just tricking you and showing you a blast….it’s an art and it’s done for all….free love.

Leggs – :)

I don’t need to defend myself. I’m a good girl but I find it funny that ya’ll think ya’ll have the market cornered cause you can get tail. Most women of that professor sees it as an art.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
