    A crush is simply lust and enjoying the feeling of being wanted. It is disguised as love sorta people get blind. Lust kind of comes and attacks you and it's important to use reason and thinking to realize the difference between lust and deeper feelings such as love. A crush is pure physical attraction.

    Love is an unconditional caring for another person, it is trust, along with a multitude of other things that I personally have yet to figure out. It is important though to note that love is something that comes to you in time if you grab it it goes away. It's kind of like forged metal though it can and does take a beating and while it may make it stronger it can also weaken or break it. Depends on lots of things. Love is who a person is not what a person looks like.

      crush pure physical attraction? now that is a poor definition... where is desire to be mentioned? where are projections, ideals, romanticism? if it were just physical then the crush could be lifted or substituted, but it is not the case, it´s more than just a mere physical attraction.

    You can only tell the difference between a love and a crush AFTER the event. Think back over your life - there are people who stuck in your mind and make you feel strong emotions to this day, even after years; these are you loves, whether they be sexual or whatever; the ones who you remember for the memory but do not resonate in your mind are your crushes. As I say, it is easy to tell the difference in the time after the event, but harder to tell at the time... Wait, investigate and be brave with your choices - ultimately, life is what you make of it :)

    A crush is when you feel interest towards someone. Love is when you know you don't want to spend the rest of your life without that person. I had several crushes throughout high school but that was it. They usually ended when I found out more about the person. As for my husband, the more i found out about him and the kind of person he was, the more I liked him. We eventually started dating and then I just knew. I didn't want to be with anyone but him. I fell madly in love with him. Almost 6 years later, I am more in love with him than ever:)

    a crush is just that - you know you are infatuated, but eventually it will be crushed by someone or something, and you will move on and live.

    love/being in love - means a whole lot more, you can't stop thinking about that person, even when you're not around them, you bring them up in all your conversations, if you werent holding onto something you would float away, you wake up thinking about them, just like you went to bed thinking of them. . . you can't picture your life without them.

    Crush is a brief but extreme force of intense but short-lived passion or admiration for someone or something.

    Whereas love is a strong feeling or affection or sexual love for someone. You like the someone something very much, you can't stop thinking of the person.

    Falling in love is more deeper than Crush.

    A crush is usually a passing emotion.

    Love is hopefully forever.

    a crush go's away in less then a few months or weeks, love stays for a long time like years.

    love is someone you can't stop thinking about, you can never find anything wrong with them, there perfect in everyway, you lay awake everynight thinking of them, you can't eat the same way, you think of them every minute of the day, you can picture a relationship with them or how it would be like.

    crush is like having butterflys in your stomach, you get nervous when your around them, you think of them once in a while, you want to look great for them, you say silly things, or do silly things, it's temporary, you blush, giggle.

    i think that's it.
