7 s you're in love with more than one person
Falling in love is an amazing feeling that has the potential to completely change someone's life. All of the excitement of the initial honeymoon phase is enough to make most people high on life for months, and in some cases, even longer. However, for some of us, the thought of experiencing this emotional eruption with more than one person at a time might sound impossible.
That said, many modern relationship models are challenging this notion. So, can you be in love with two people at once? Well, the belief that romantic love can only be felt for one person because of it's all-consuming and obsessive nature is still prevalent.
But, experts say that sharing your heart isn't out of the question.
When it comes to being in love with more than one person, Dr. Jess explains that it's not much different from platonically loving multiple people. Jess tells Elite Daily.
Although loving two people can be confusing, for those who are open to "non-traditional" relationship dynamics like polyamory, it's definitely possible to have loving relationships with multiple people simultaneously. If you're feeling a strong romantic connection with two people, it could be time to ask yourself whether traditional monogamy is giving you everything you need. This can be a difficult and upsetting perspective in a world that touts the monogamous relationship as the ultimate form of romantic and sexual love, but from a practical and chemical perspective, loving multiple partners is desirable for many people.
On the other hand, if a monogamous relationship is ultimately what you want, then you'll need to decide which relationship if either you want to move forward with.
Jess, if you find yourself immensely struggling to let one partner go and commit to the other, then this may be another al that seeking out partners who are open to non-monogamy could be right for you. Ultimately, even though experiencing passionate love for two people is possible, not everyone is open to sharing their partner with someone else. In the end, the most important thing is to accept your individual needs and decide what type of relationship you want to pursue.
The good news is, you can totally change your mind and experiment with different love models until you find one that works for you and your partner s. By Tayi Sanusi.
