Dating: Can You Fall in Love with Two People at Once?
Once in a while we would read about a couple, celebrity and otherwise, who are in a throuple—and how the three of them are in love with each other. But what about you, guys, have you ever been in love with two people at the same time and if so, what did you do? Did the three of you decide to give throuple a go or did you choose not to act on your feelings? Did you choose between the two or did you walk away from them instead? For Adam4Adam readers who have yet to experience this, do you think it’s possible for you to fall for two people at once?
Anyway, according to relationships educator Kate McCombs, as cited by Thrillist, if this happens to you, do not “judge yourself for feeling attracted to someone who isn’t your partner.” She added, “When you get into an internal judgment cycle about it, it can make it a bigger deal than it is. Most of the time, you can have a few fantasies and faps about that person and it will naturally diffuse over time.”
But what if your feelings don’t go away? McCombs thinks polyamorous or open relationships might be for you, “If you’ve been monogamous and you are finding yourself in love with someone else too, you may have to make some tough life choices and rethink your relationship style.” Read the full article here.
