Langauge Arts - Simile/Matephor

Is the phrase "like a moth to a flame" a simile or metaphor? i can see both....
Similes always use "like" or "as", which the phrase has "like" although it's not comparing...
So my answer is metaphor, but I'm not sure. Help!
The phrase is incomplete. We assume it's something like "She's attracted to football players like a moth to a flame."
Now what do you think this is?
Btw -- out of four words in your School Subject, you've misspelled two of them.
It is Metaphor. I think
I know I misspelled two words; I figured it out as soon as I posted it. I always misspell language (and guard) for some reason and metaphor was an honest typo. My apologies.
I'm still confused...is the new phrase, "she's attracted to football players like a moth to a flame", comparing? Does a simile even have to be comparing?
Now that you made it complete, I think it's a simile because "like" is now used in the sentence.
Yes, it's a simile because of the word "like."
