What is Making Love – How Sex Affects Relationships
As relationships progress, having sex with your partner often changes into making love with your partner. If you are not sure how to tell if you have been making love or having sex, there are some key differences that will help differentiate the two.
Physical touch has long been known to be very important for humans to feels emotionally stable and healthy. It explains why we seek it from those we love and care about. The transition from having sex with your sexual partner to making love with them is emotionally charged and often solidifies the relationship.
Lust and love are not the same thing. They both are very motivating, but lust for your partner is temporary. The problem is when we do not realize that we begin most relationships in lust. We want this person to be "the one" and misinterpret our lust for love. Understanding that it is normal to have sexual feelings for someone before you love them helps us to make better decisions about our futures. Take the time to get to know your partner before you commit to a long term relationship. Be sure that the values, morals, desires, and goals are appropriate to the future that you want to build.
