unanswered thoughts on love
love comes in many forms. we love our parents, our family members, our friends, maybe even our coworkers. we love all these people in a similar way though we might love some more than others. then we also love our “partner.” this love is different than the other love. though there are similar characteristics, there is a different strength. it’s interesting to think you have found the person you want to give your entire life too and live happily together. this usually forms a deeper bond or form of love. how many people can you love in this way? first in a life time. how many times does one find “the one?” that’s not the question i’m trying to answer though. how many people can you love as “partners” at the same time? can you love two people at once? i don’t mean sexual attraction because we all know we can be sexually attracted to many people at the same time. if we do love two people at once, who do we choose? do we choose neither? many people say to choose the “second person you loved because you wouldn’t have loved them if you loved the first.” this is bullshit. you can easily feel something strong for two people simultaneously and not know what to do with yourself. it might not be love, but it’s something strong. also if you love someone and know you want to be with them for the rest of your life, can you still be sexually attracted to someone else? does that cancel out your love for the first? who answers these questions? how does one put their thoughts together? is this something we will ever know? is there a right way to decide?
