Is there truth to this statement: If you love two people it means you're not "in love" with either?

    I believe when you're "in love" you believe your mate is "the one"!

    On the other hand if you just (love someone) it means you care a lot about them but they may not be "the one" in your eyes. You'd be open to explore other possibilities.

    "..you find yourself thinking about that person, to the {exclusion} of everyone else." - Excellent point!

    I believe if one was "in love" with the (first person) they wouldn't have made time to date the second person and develop feelings of love.

    ketage, So many people confuse loving someone with being "in love" with someone. Like you I believe what J.W. Bourdillon is saying if someone is "in love" the heart has but one eye. You don't have the desire to go out on dates with anyone else.

    Parimalpolymath, You're correct regarding this question being of the romantic nature. It's listed under Gender Relatons- Non-Monogamous & Cheating in Relationships. I believe people who are “in love” don’t cheat while those who love/care may.
