A lot of the time, people tend to date two or more people at the same time, and even claim to love them both. But is this really possible?
That’s our topic on Sunday Love Special, and Drama and Shawn will tell share their opinions on this topic.
I’ve heard and seen this question quite a number of times, and it’s a really important one to shed light on. A lot of times I’ve heard people say it’s not possible to be in love with two people at once, but I really believe it’s very possible to love two people at once. No two people have the same qualities or share a personality, so that’s what makes it very possible for one to be in love with more than one person. You can meet person A and love them because they are special in a certain way, and meet person B, and love them for something else.
I’ve seen a lot of people who have faced similar situations, and every time it happened, it was clear they really cared about both people in their lives. Some say, you can love just one person, and be infatuated with another, but that’s just semantics. Love or infatuation, the bottom line is you actually really do care about the two people in your life. I have never found myself in a situation like that though, so I can’t say much about this topic, however I think it’s very possible to love and be attracted to two different people for two distinct qualities or even more. But in situations like that I also think that there’s always the one with a bigger part of the love. You love person A and B, but you really can’t love them equally; I doubt that’s possible. You most likely will love one of the two more than the other one for something they have or do that the other person doesn’t.
Being in love with someone takes a lot of your emotions, and it’s like sharing your life with that person, that’s if you’re in the relationship with that person. Going by this, it’s plain impossible to love two people at the same time. You cannot treat them both equally and you cannot have the same affection for the two of them.
If it’s not true, then it isn’t love, and for love to be true, there has to be trust, faithfulness, honesty, commitment, selflessness and dedication. Can you then say this will be possible if you claim to love two people at the same time?
For you to claim to love two people at the same time shows that your definition of love is really flawed. Love is more than just an emotion, and in a heart where it exists, it is clearly dominant.
You can probably be attracted to two people at the same time, but to love two people at the same time only disqualifies what truly being in love means.
That’s our take on today’s edition of the Elcrema Sunday Love Special. Do you believe you can love two people at the same time?
