love's triangle

I'm always intrigued by the notion that a person believes they can be in love with two people at the same time. WTF?

I don't think that's true. I think when it comes down to the wire and both people stand in front of you -- you will lean towards one. And really, if we want to get to the nitty-gritty of things I think there is something selfish about the indecisive member of the party. You know there mo-- probably want their cake and eat it too -- so to speak. And when the guilty member of the party gets fouled up and caught red-handed and the universe allows them to reap what they sow by having the two innocent parties walk out of their life, then we know the boomerang theory is in full effect.

However, some people are still convinced that you can be in love with two people. Particularly, when the scenario is you're in a committed relationship and perhaps you're missing your ex. Obviously, the guilty party doesn't need a relationship on their plate -- it's just adding to the confusion. So, I say all this to say, those who believe that you can be in love with two people, have not presented a firm argument that discredits my belief. But in the event you can, bring it on.

Is everything ok over there Bellini? Just checking on ya :)

I got to tell you...this is always an interesting discussion. I can recall conversations that lasted weeks on this very topic.

Long story short it always ended with an headache...touching on subtopics such as What is the difference between loving somebody and being in love? What is the definition of each? Is it possible to love more than once?

My thoughts are you can always love more than one person. Whether you can be with or committed to more than one person is another story.
