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.

You are not bothered by their imperfections.
Lust is when you just want to boink the object of that lust.
