  • lust lasts for as long as you allow it to.
    Try to work it out w/ whoever you are with now.
    You may think your unhappy but it may be because of you thinking abt your ex
    so the first step would be forgetting him.

  • not too long - it slowly fades and then, if its meant to be it turns to love. 4-6 months.

    Ah gad, it sounds like i am writing a sappy love song. :)

  • for me lust lasted 2 years. then it really made us see our relationship on a deeper level. it made us closer but also was harder. I think if you are not narried then go for it. if u are then think really hard about this and do what will make u happy cuz when you are happy your kids are happy!! Good luck!

  • there is a saying not to go back to like the dog that vomits and then eats it. Move on, its a thing of the past and sounds Like Lust, If you both have been involved sexually with other partners since..Its definitely time to cut the cord. You shouldn't even be talking to him right now anyway! That is considered the early stages of cheating! I would be pissed to find my bf even TALKING to an Ex. He would be in category--Cheating. The ex's are an ex for a reason..the thing of the pass dont go back to it move on with your life- Sounds like lust in all honesty.Im not trying to bash you.
