Person to Person:

Connection of your soul with someone else's. It's settling your differences, dealing with conflicts as one person, not two separate entities.

  1. I'm thinking... sometimes love is out of lust, cuz it's a kind of natural desire.

    The boundary between Love & Lust is actually unclear; while, there's always one period for one person with certain tendency towards love, or lust. On the whole, the attitude is always fluctuating.

  2. Well, you might be right. But according to the chart there is significant difference between love and lust. In my opinion the most important difference is that love is other-centered, it is based on communication both from physical and intellectual level. Lust is self-centered and it merely comes out of physical desire. Haha, I am still on the journey to find my love.
