And the topic kicks off. First of all the topic says if is it possible to romantically love more than person at once. I agree with the statement, yes it is possible because, over the years we have seen the term love been used differently, it is possible for someone to love more than one person, I mean look around you, everyone has that special someone they have feelings for outside their relationship., which is ok because you dont have to deal with getting hurt by one person or relying on one particular individual to make you happy. I know my opponent is against this but then again if you look at it, romantically you love two people so that at the end you can easily choose who you want to be with; moreover, things happen and we can't help who we fall in love with so I personally think we should not be held responsible or criticized about how we feel cause its only in our human nature. According to A source at Fox news, they expressed their opinions about this topic, they called it Polyamory, which means having more than one open romantic relationship at a time. This is the Mariam Webster dictionary definition of polyamory. Another source stated that If you not familiar with it, polyamory (which means"many loves
) is the practice of having more than one open sexual, romantic relationship. Typically characterized as loving, poly-relationships don't just involve sex, but emotions as well.This practice of maintaining multiple significant, intimate relationships simultaneously encompasses love, intimacy, commitment, friendship, affection, flirting, desire, sex, romance, eroticism .. Some couples who practice this may have an open marriage. Married or not, this arrangement may involve one or both partners having another exclusive relationship, in addition to their own primary relationship. Or it may be a matter of either partner having free range to have sexual relationships with others. It also went further as using the television show called the Bachelor as an example, now am not a big fan of the television show but i have an idea of what its all about, also i have watched similar television shows like the bachelor. We see how girls from different backgrounds, characters and personalities struggle to make the bachelor fall in love with them so that they can be chosen; moreover, its based on polyamory because the bachelor in question has an affair with each and every girl that comes to the show in order to know them better and be able to choose a wife at the end of the season. The bachelor is an example of how someone can love more than one person at a time, now the romantic part comes into action when the bachelor is comfortable with ever girl that proves her self as a potential candidate , am not talking about one girl, its two or more. As the season goes by, when majority of the girls are eliminated, then the bachelor starts to have feelings because he feels like he can concentrate on the ones he has connection with; moreover, when it gets down to the last two , its a big conflict because he might be in love with both of them, and they serve different purposes i mean like they are special in their own ways that he wouldn't want to pick the wrong person for a wife but at the end he has to pick the one that fits his description for a wife, that doesn't mean he does not love both of them. i don't know if my opponent would understand my point;however, loving more than one person romantically is possible but not equally. i would conclude my first round of debate by saying it is possible to romantically love more than one person, we cant help help who we fall in love with because we are humans but that's not an excuse to be involved with more than one person just to have fun or hurt their feelings, therefore when you get in the middle situations like this, take proper precautions before you end up making wrong decisions and regretting it later on.

Is it possible to be romantically in love with to people ? Some believes its not true other"s believe you can love to people. I totally disagree with this with loving two people at once. First of all there is no possible way you can romantically love two people that's insane. For example there"s a guy and is talking to two different females for about 3 years now. He has strong feelings for both females but he truly loves one of them. That feeling you get when "think" you love two different people nothing but lust and love. There"s a huge difference between them , with lust your basically being selfish it"s more sexual romantic. With love its selfless you will do things you won"t normally do for them. That's what people get confused in a relationship. They believe that the person they are lusting after is the right choice and leave the one they love and when it comes down to it they realize that they left the one they love for the one just was attracted to physical instead of mentally. Just compare your pass lover"s to your "first love". It doesn't really match up does it. Because at that time you we"re just experiencing your first experience of lust. I mean just trying to love to people is just too complicated. For one you have to constantly have to satisfy them both so you can stay with them. And constantly lie to them so you can keep yourself out of the dog house. Now do you really think its worth it to put yourself through that ? I'm sure your answer would be no. Even if you did decide to put yourself through that you risking both of your relationship"s. With you being sneaky and trying to love to people it will catch up to you and you will possibly lose both of them and now you're back at square one. When you love someone you choose them over other people who pull play with your heart and uses you. But in our generation nowadays nobody know"s what love is so they make themselves believe that they are in love. But I believe that if you do get put in an situation where you love two people go with the second because if you truly loved the first one you wouldn't love another person. Just the thought of putting two people in that situation is just selfish and unfair to them because you have them thinking that you love them and only them not knowing that you love another person. Playing mind games with their mate and their mate being blind to the fact they love them so much and wouldn't think that they would love anyone but them. So no you cannot love two people at the same time because if you believe you love two people you're lying to yourself and them and wasting everyone's time.
