Are you a player or a serial monogamist? Do you hate commitments or are you never without them? Do you hate being tied up to someone or do you love the idea that someone will always be there for you?

Honestly, it doesn't matter which one you choose for they say that all is fair in love and lust.

What is the difference between love and lust? That is a good question to ask. However, answers often vary depending on who you will ask. To me, love is a strong feeling that is undeniable and most of the time, unexplainable. It is only felt by people who are looking for relationships - whether it is for a long time or just a short time. Lust is something that everyone feels. It is attraction which makes us do wild things without the idea of ever being tied to anyone or ever being in a relationship for that matter. Love and lust are never the same but both are beneficial in their own ways. While love enables you to see the softer side of you and makes you feel more inspired and happier to get on with life because of your partner, lust also has its advantages. To be with different partners with no commitment whatsoever while you continue to have fun with them actually sounds interesting to those who want that kind of lifestyle. Both are healthy to some extent but of course, we all know that too much of something can be bad for anyone.

There are so many pros and cons to love and lust. All we need to do weigh them both to know the difference. Love can guarantee that you will find happiness but nobody knows for how long it will last. For if you open your heart to love someone, you also risking exposure to all the pain that comes along with it. Lust can provide short term happiness but at the end of the day, sometimes players feel empty too. They might not admit it but they can envy those who have settled down and are in relationships too. Love is a learning experience. Monogamy though is a requirement for many and aside from that; there are so many other things that it can demand from you. In short, time consuming and needs a lot of investing. Lust, on the other hand, is more carnal. It only answers to your desires and never your feelings. Monogamy is not important. You do not need to stick to the rules of being a relationship for you aren’t in one.

To players, love is overrated and complicated which can only be more stressful than beneficial for them while to others, it is a feeling that should be given importance to because of how rare it can happen to most people. There are so many ways to define both terms. Their meanings are endless but lucky are those to have experienced both in their short lives for it is never easy to have both. At the end of it all, the choice is still yours. Whether you choose to be a player or a monogamist, nobody has the right to judge you. It is your right to do whatever makes you happy.

Now, do you believe that all is fair in love and lust? Well, I most certainly do.
