I had a first hand experience with this with my wife.. we were both committed to our girlfriend / boyfriend when we met each other.. It was like a whirlwind love affair.. we pursued the relationship and got happily married with each other.. this brings me to the question that .. Is it possible for the heart to fall in love again while being occupied by another person? If you fall in love more than once or twice in an occasion, is it really falling in love or mere infatuation? Is there a real limit to the number of times that you fall in love?

I believe True love happens just once in life, rest all has no meaning.

If you love someone with all your heart then you can never love anyone else. I believe when you love , your whole being are drowned in to that persons personality. When you started to like another person then you never love the person you are in right now with all your heart and mind. I can only say is that be honest with the person you are going out today so one will be hurt as time pass by.

Sometimes this could happend, from different reasons, sometimes you are bored, and routine says his word, and nothing is special anymore in your relationship, everything is the same every day, or when you begin fights with your current boyfriend/girlfriend, you begin to see other people as well, and be tempted to flirt, and this is the first step.

Unfortunately, I do think you can fall in love with more than one person. Is it right? No it's not. Some people have the words you need to hear for a long time. It is a temptation and if your not strong enough, you will fall into it. It's probably not love with the other person though. She probably does love you, things might not have been going just right and someone else sounded to good to be true but she fell for it anyway. They probably said and did everything maybe you weren't doing at the time...I don't know if this is the case but it's possible. Like I said, it's not right but it happens sometimes =0 =)

I guess nope there is no limit if you fall in love a couple of times. And it is possible to fall in love while you are in an active relationship. There are things that do happens for a certain reason or maybe that's what we called destiny.

i guess that is why some people would say that a relationship is also a matter of commitment. being human beings, we are governed by the selfishness of human nature that wants to have the best of all to our selves. once we settle with what we think is the best and then the next day while holding on to our priceless object of affection, find a much more interesting piece somewhere. and it goes on and on. but once we make a commitment to stay with someone for a lifetime, whether we can find someone better in the future, we simply decide that we are sticking it out with the one we love.

in my view..i guess we can fall in love even if we are still in an active relationship..i always believe that if you found yourself loving someone else aside from the one that you are having a relationship with, you have to leave that relationship as soon as possible..don't be unfair to that person..because if you really love the person you are currently having a relationship with, you won't be falling in love with somebody else whatever it takes..and i also believe that there's no limit to the number of times that we may fall in love..but i always believe that once you've found the one destined to be your other half, you'll know it and you won't find yourself falling in love with another person ever again..

well i can say no if you are committed to someone special you can't do anything that will destroy your relationship and will hurt him for lying and cheating.

huh? how can that happen if you are in love with the one you're with the relationship? i think it's not possible unless if he/she doesn't really love him/her.

Some times we misunderstand infatuation as love, and all love is not infatuation though. There is a possibility to fall in love with some one else while being in a relationship with another person. You never know when true love come in your life and it can be an infatuation to fall in love with some one else while you are in a relationship. It can be a vice versa. When true love comes, you might be in a current relationship or with no relationship. It is the person with such feelings to have a soul searching to understand the true feelings in his/her heart. It will take time but its worth trying! While some people just response to their feelings that occurred in a few moment some would take times to understand the real feelings. Do not jump into action straight away when you have a crush..take time to think it over and understand yourself/feelings. You can be a flirt or you can missed true love.
