Do you think it's possible to TRULY love two people at the same time? I don't mean love as in a friendly way or family type way, I mean in a way where you feel incomplete without them there but also feel the same way about someone else. just curious about answers this isn't a personal question at all :-)

I did love two women at the same time, I think it's possible. When I was with my third girlfriend, I fell in love with someone else. Some think this is impossible but maybe they just don't wanna accept it because they don't wanna fall for two people coz they don't want to get hurt.

Yea, I can see how falling in love with 2 people can cause pain and pain causes denial so that makes perfect since to me!

Yep, if you know you're gonna cause pain to others then you will never admit that you were in love with another girl. Another sad truth.

Yes, I believe you can be in love with two people at the same time.I have been there. They were totally different of each other. I choose the one that was best for my children and me. I have been happily married to him for fifteen years. It is like I let the other one go and never looked back. I new it was for the best.

It seems like it would be hard to just let someone your in love with go and never look back. I completely understand though because for me, my children do come first no matter what!

I think people love at varying degrees...so if a person claims to be in love with 2 at the same time, i think it is not at all the same kind of love, or has the same intensity of feelings. just my thoughts. anyway, i think i can only feel that much for one person (at a time)....i can't see myself being equally in love with 2 (or more!) at the same time.... maybe some people are just confused with their feelings and are led into thinking that they are in fact in love with 2 partners.....

I believe so. It's hard to imagine if we have never been in this situation, but there have been those who have claimed to experience this. I don't see any reason why not. We all have our own ideas about love and society has influenced us greatly as well. Just because something may contradict our ideas about what love is or what society tells us love should be does not mean that it isn't possible.

Hi mykay, Yes it may be possible. I myself was involved in two-time affairs sometime in the past. I say, I was in the best and the worst of times. I have the best of both worlds, going from one lover to the other, no wasted time, all living life to the fullest. It is also the worst of times, balancing the time and getting not too involved in some scenes when the my lovers met in one place, getting very awkward and trying to use all tactics to avert a potential world war. Yes, it is possible, if you are up to it.

I don't think so. True love can only be given to one person. Maybe you are just confused and not ready to let go one of them but believe me, there is only one person you can love genuinely. You cannot serve two masters at a time the same way that you cannot love two people with the same intensity and affection.
