    Yes, have been there and done that. But, it is so unfair to the two people. So, of course it was corrected. The simple question is who do you have a past with? The most important question is who do you have a future with?

      Hello friend. I agree that it is unfair. And whichever way, someone always ends up hurt. Thanks for the advice and I am heavily considering one I have a future with.  Thanks

    Yes, but it all depends on what type of love you are talking about.  I have two female friends that are not family that I love very dearly and deeply; and yet, I do not date either of them.  Since your question does not limit the type of love, then the answer is a shout out loud (SOL) yes!

    However, if your question is about forming an intimate relationship with more than one person, then I would agree with ´╗┐JThomp42 answer above. 

    I hope this helps.

      Very true Floating  Mind. Its more of intimate...that awkward moment when you have to make a choice between one

    Sure is. I love lots of people at the same time: my wife, my kids, my friends. But I think you mean romantically. And my answer once again is yes, but a qualified one. The mature individual makes a choice, then sticks with it, separating themselves from the one not chosen. In another sense, my committed love with my wife frees me to love many other people, including women. Since sex and romance are off the table, I am freer to love (agape) rather than love (eros).

      Excellent advice...I agree that it comes a point when one has to make a choice and settle down. Guess that's my predicament. Thanks for this great advice and  make a choice I will

    My friend, I believe you are referring to the love between a man and a woman. The answer is yes, it is possible to love two people at the same time, but I doubt one can love them fully. Two hoses from the same faucet lessen the flow to each.

    sure! I love my mom and dad very very much! If you are talking about outsiders; lovers for example; maybe possible, depending on your capability...

    Your question is little bit confusing, because you didn't mention the geners and relations. So according to your question the answer is Yes.

    Romantically, no. Platonically, most definitely!

    it depends on what type of love you are referring to.  If you are asking about unconditional love or which is called Agape in philosophy, it is possible.  You love your parents at the same time.  But if we are going to talk about erotic love, I think it's also possible because a person falls in love with another person because of his/her physical traits/appearance.  But in the context of faithful love, I don't think it's possible.  You cannot love 2 different persons at the same time, I think it's possible that you really love the other one while you are just physically attracted to the other.  Loving 2 persons is not good and this line is just an excuse of those unfaithful people:
    "I WISH I HAD TWO HEARTS SO I WON'T BE CHOOSING BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU". hahaha this is so absurd.

    Firstly we love ourselves the most,to add on to the list is our family,friends,relatives, neighborhood................. so there is always more than two people we love at the same time,that is what makes us social beings.

    Of course it is. In face, it's possible to love 7 billion people at the same time.

    Sure, I even think that you can love far more than 2 at the same time. Just ask the Dalai Lama how many people he loves at the same time. :-)
