I just wondered if anybody else has felt like this. I know it is very hard.

Very tough question. I suppose different people will have their different opinions on this, but for me, I do not feel that real love is something I feel for more than one person... at a time! I can understand loving more than one person on different occasions. I mean when things don't work out with someone you love, eventually it can be possible to truly love another person down the road, I think. Me, I've only really loved one person--my current partner. We've been together for 6 years and I don't believe I could truly love someone else while loving him. He seems to feel the same way. I think the term love is what's too often abused and misunderstood. In my opinion, love is a very... limited thing? I don't know the word for it, but love to me means something really big, not just feelings. If that makes sense?

Lust? Sure! You can lust many, many people. I think that's what's often confused with the word love. I've been quilty of mistaking intense like/lust for love several times and it wasn't until being with my current partner for so long and actually feeling love that I understood what it was.

While I can't be sure because I don't think I've ever been in love I think it's possible. Those who are a part of the poly community and members of Eden could probably answer this better. Especially since there are variations of poly relationships. But I don't doubt that those that are in relationships with multiple partners are capable of loving both parties. This might not be for everyone but it's not an impossible feat that should be denied or made to seem illegitimate.

yes i think you can be expecially if your in an open marriage and relationship where more then one person is involved if theres no feelings there for that other person then it is devoid of the perpous

I voted "Other" because I'm not sure if I personally can but I'm 100% certain that others can. Polyamorous people exist, after all. Ask the many on this site.

Never have. I've swung, having several lovers at the same time, but having only loved one at a time. I think it's possible, though.

I've been in love with more than one person at a time. It's definitely possible, but unless you're in a polyamourous relationship/lifestyle , it's difficult and stressful.

I do think you can love more than one person at a time. I think that's why, at least in part, people change partners. I think that during that transition, you are in love with them both.

I am in love with two people. I have two partners. We have all three been together for 9 years.

I don't feel I have a limited amount of love to give. The more I love, the more I have to give.

I certainly think so, but you usually have to choose one

Love to people yes, nor do think it be hard to do. Now what comes after that: Have a successful poly relationship with two people, choosing one, or having two painful break ups, that would be the hard part.

My thoughts exactly. I'm sure there are people that can be in love with more than one person, but I don't think I could ever be.

Yes, and I'm one of those people. I've been in my current two relationships for about 2 years now, and I don't see either of them ending any time soon.
