When two people are in love, it always come with a feeling of satisfaction, fulfillment and gratitude to God for having their paths crossed with that person they have given their heart to. But what happens when the love is extended  to another? Can the heart actually love two at a time?

One of the qualities of being human is to understand complex emotions and to feel emotions too. Love itself is a very complex emotion, sometimes it cannot be explained, but love is an instinctive feeling and that is why mothers can’t help but to care for their children. They are ready to die for them without thinking.

People have come up with various ideas of what they think love is and most people don’t even know when they are in love. In our family lives, we learn to love our parents, siblings, relations and even friends and there we can claim to love more than one person at a time, but when it comes to relationships, you know where your heart really is.

As much as people claim to love two people at the same time, you can’t love them both equally for if you really love someone, you do not have any reason to fall in love with another person because your heart is already occupied.

When you truly love someone, that person is all you think about, you always want to be around that person and you don’t want to hurt that person or lose his/her trust. The more you get from that person, the more you want. Most people do not know how to manage their relationships and their body starts playing trick on their minds and they do not know when they are moving from love to lust.

You can actually lose love for a person and start loving someone else because when you open your heart to one, every other person takes little space in your heart. If you take a deep look in your heart, you will know where your heart is and not your body, but then again love is a complex emotion.

WHATS YOUR DEFINITION OF TRUE LOVE?

My definition of true love is two fools walking together with their eyes seriously closed or covered up completely.

WHY DO YOU CALL THEM FOOLS?

It is because they decided to cover their eyes not to see faults and even if they feel it, they can always handle it within them not minding what people say, so I call them fools. Now, that’s real love and its hard to find.

TO YOU, CAN THE HEART LOVE TWO AT A TIME?
Real love, No. But, if it is mere infatuation, I say Yes.

WHATS THE REASON FOR YOUR ANSWER?
The heart is one and has only one space, other things are just attachments, that’s how it was created. Love and likeness are not the same, you can like all but you love one.
