Most people who have breeched it know that English is poor at discussing the topic, as we only have one word (LOVE) for something the Greeks had four words for, (Agape, Eros, Philia, and Storge).

Lust at first sight: Do you mix up love with a full-blown bout of longing lust?


We all know what lust feels like. That electric spark that passes from you to your heartthrob each time you touch. That sense of ‘I’ve found The One’ washing over you, before you’ve had a chance to even find out his/her name!
