Where is the love?
Have you ever imagined what a perfect relationship would look like? Two partners being companions, partners in crime, best friends to each other and being equally passionate in bed. Do you think your relationship meets the criteria or you're still confused?

It is very important for two partners to discuss what they're feeling about each other. It makes the bond grow stronger and lets the partner come closer. If you guys avoid discussing emotional issues, then it is a sure sign of the relationship being only for the lust.
It is natural for a relationship to take its course. Although, it isn't necessary to start planning for a marriage and kids, things like where you would see this relationship going are something that couples like to plan. But if you haven't discussed any plans with your partner because you're so interested in having sex, then that relationship isn't headed anywhere.
A relationship includes some wonderful memories. It could be the time your boyfriend cooked a delicious meal for you or surprised you with an exciting plan for Valentine's day. But if your special memories include only the ones happened in the bedroom, this isn't taking the right track.
It is completely fine to look good for your partner and expect them to dress up nicely when they're going out on a date with you. But focusing too much on their appearance is a sure sign that you're only in it for the physical purposes and there's nothing emotional in it.
Couples will want to spend a lot of time with each other indulging in various activities. They will want to go for adventures, or try out a new Chinese restaurant, or check out the latest movies. If you think the best way to spend time with your partner is being in the bedroom, you're only high on lust, not love.
Couples may want to try different things in the bedroom to keep things interesting, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't care about each others' feelings. If you and your partner are always talking about keeping things interesting in the bedroom and not discussing how you feel for each other, it's not going to last much longer.
A couple should be able to talk about anything and everything. No topic should be out of bounds whether it is likes, dislikes, family, educations, career, or even future plans. If your conversations are only focused on sex, your relationship is only based on lust.
Every couple loves some quality time. Whether they would prefer a quiet date night, or go to explore the town. But your quality time is only about spending time in the bedroom.
A partner thinks a lot about their partner when they're away. Their sweet smile, their jokes, or possibly how they look at you. But if you're in a relationship only for lust, all you can think about is their body.
