It's very easy, actually.

Ask yourself one question: "Would I run into a burning building to save this person?" For someone you truly love, there would be literally no hesitation: you're going in there to risk your life for them.

Someone in lust would never do that. Someone merely infatuated would also never consider doing it.

Lust is just sexual attraction, infatuation is a crush. Both of those things are great but they are far removed from true love.

Yep.

Let's let Percy help us out....

Love is when you can't imagine life without the other person.
You are not bothered by their imperfections.
Lust is when you just want to boink the object of that lust.
