lure vs attract

is there any difference between lure and attract in term of meaning or formal/informal or anything else? Thanks in advance!

‘Lure’ is often more sensual.

That´s why lurkers often have lure looks? :oops: :lol:

Hi Michael,

I think the word you want is ‘lurid’ and that means either very brightly coloured or shocking.


oh yes, thank you Alan,

usually I´m not that sketchy when checking up words in the “leo”- dictionary. At least I hope so. :oops:
