Why can you love only them?
U can only love them & also care about others.
Why you love them in the first place? What if you met your ex and your current love at the same time?
@FS92IT it is possible to love more than one person at a time, or love one person and care/be attracted to others. However devoting yourself to one person is a choice and choosing not to put energy into developing relationships with someone you're attracted to is a choice. Even when you're single, just because you're attracted to someone doesn't mean you have to pursue them. We're intelligent beings who are capable of conscious thought. All relationships whether they're primary or secondary come with certain challenges. If a person let's said challenges get the better of them, then that too is a choice. I personally choose to devote myself to one person for life. I choose to love them even when we go through challenges because I have the ability to do so. It may or may not work out when I'm an 80 year old lady, but that is that the risk I am willing to take.
@FS92IT also, I have nothing against polyamory. It works better for some people, that's great. As long as no harm comes to people (other than normal relationship challenges of course) then it's no my business. Polygamy has been practiced by many societies, so has monogamy. There are challenges in both. As humans we are naturally inclined to adapt to both, as both socially work. Again, it's whether you're willing to work through the challenges each relationship dynamic offer. You do you.
@morningstar01 It's definitely not possible to love two people at the same time. You either truly love one of them, or you don't love either of them at all.
@beachgoddess that's definently not right, u love your spouse, u love your family, u love ur kids, etc. U can also love the father/mother of ur kids after separation but love ur new significant other.
There's different types of love, it is most definitely possible to love MORE than 1 person.
I hate to break it to you darling, but loving someone and being IN love are two completely different things. If you believe you are in love with two people, you’re just experiencing infatuation/lust. But it’s not love.
So for instance if ur "IN LOVE" with a man and something happens and he passes away, years down the road u find another guy & he's also everything u have ever dreamed of, ur saying u couldn't be in love with him too?
Christianity had absolutely nothing to do with evolution and progress of mankind, secularism did. Hence Age of Enlightenment!!
@Oram52 I think the separation of state and church is a good thing, but that in my opinion doesn't invalidate the fact that western societies are still mostly based on Christianity and its moral, and many countries continue to observe religious holidays.
That't the thing they're not based on Christianity, there was time when Christianity influenced Western societies, but we moved passed that, hence the progress. Christmas for example is also festive/secular holiday, Easter people are more concerned with chocolate eggs. The point you originally made was progress is linked to Christianity. It was opposite even Christianity still continued to have cultural affects progress came moving passed Christianity, and Secularizing. Christianity hindered progress not aid it.
Not at all
LMFAO sure whatever you say
It would be creepy only in your closed mind, if it were true. You don't decide what's universally creepy and what not, so don't go around judging and blaming others about how they live their life. I for example, think that monogamous relationships are fake and hypocritical but don't go around telling people who like them they are hypocrite.
Shut up dumb bitch! Don't disrespect another man on my watch! Back in the days you'd be in the kitchen.
@SpreadingFacts it would be great if people on these threads didn't have emotionally charged responses. Can people not debate in a healthy and mature way?
She wrote an emotionally charged response and I let her know it was one of those =p
@FS92IT I agree. My response was to the troll, not you, no worries.
she is rìght so leave her alone. it only comes from sexual desperation. I dont get along with someone because of sexuality I get along with him cause I have strong feelings for him and theyre stronger than my sexual desires. people nowadays are jyst sp desperate I dont fking understand it.
Oh my God ! Tell me where you are stuck, I'm bringing a rope to get you out of your very deep well !
I know it's the basic of our society and I'm sure most couples around me are in a monogamous relationship, but I for one can't seem to find a girl that's willing to commit as much as I do. I frequent bars and clubs but no one seems to be up for more than just a one night stand
Well, you don't want to commit to someone you just randomly met though, maybe after getting to know each other for enough time they may think you are good enough matches to go further?
I wouldn't say looking in a bar is the best way to find a mono relationship? 😕There are definitely women out there who would though. I think the key is not to go looking. Focus on yourself and you'll find by letting go, the right partner for you may come along. It's like when a couple "tries" to get pregnant, and when they let go of holding on to that need, it happens. I met my darling when I decided to just work on myself. I didn't actually want a relationship with him at first because I wanted to focus on being OK with being alone. However I couldn't help it, he was my dream guy 😂And you know, contrary to the popular stereotype, my guy is gentle, nice, am all round good person. A "good guy"... and that's the best part about him.
I want to quickly add too that my guy had terrible luck in relationships. He dealt with erectile dysfunction due to being rejected in the past and chose to abstain from sex for 3 years before we met. But like a puzzle, we fit perfectly. It didn't bother me that he had his struggles with dating in the past, and had anxieties around forming relationships and women. All I knew is that I liked who he was. He emitted a radiance I had never seen from any other man, despite a bit of a lack of confidence. In the end, he realised he had nothing to worry about because he found a person who was/is genuinely interested in associating with people who have spirit and who are fundamentally good. Fast forward a few years and a baby, it's as though you could never tell he had intimacy challenges. Not only is he the best sex I've ever had, but he's an amazing father and partner. Sorry to ramble
Very uplifting story ! Thanks !
You're wrong! Back in the day it was polygamy all the way!
@SpreadingFacts well not in all societies, but many societies have. There are many forms of relationships that have been implemented through human history.
@SpreadingFacts only at some times and in some societies
@SpreadingFacts When you study the history of the rise and fall of societies of the past, the ones that were and still are the most successful are those in which people are monogamous. Those that have become more sexually free and liberal have always fallen either due to collapse or because they were invaded/replaced by people from stronger cultures that practiced monogamy. That's why those societies from "back in the day" died out.
@englisc so true!
That would be called polygyny and it has proven to be detrimental to males in lower "social rankings". In societies where polygyny has been practiced, statistics show an increase of crime, an increase in poverty and higher male aggression. Think about it -- In a polygynous society, the men of higher social ranking hoard all the women which leaves little to the rest of the men in society. Its an unbalacing concept. Polyamorous, or monogomous relationships on the other hand are much more stable for the structure of society.
So to sum it up, basically your ideal would mean you'd end up only seeing your hand for the rest of your life as I assume you're not of higher socioeconomic status. Lol
