For me, being in love with someone and infatuation are two different things. True love is built over time whereas feelings of desire tend to arise in the initial stage. You can easily get attracted to as many people as you want but the genuine feeling of head over heels is just for the one. Being in love is a beautiful feeling.
Trust, loyalty, and valuing the relationship are really important to me because that’s what keeps the relationship alive. And with the experiences I have had in the past, I have never been able to share the same amount of these energies with more than one person at the same time. Like I said, we can lust over many people but falling in love just works in the singularity. You can fall in love multiple times with the same person but not with multiple people at the same time.

Pause for a moment and think about this, that on an average we wake up only 29,200 times every morning taking a global average life-span. Life seems short isn’t it, when you put it like this. It is imperative to be in love with multiple people given how short life is. While love can range from lust to attraction to attachment, my focus is on the kind of love that gives me pure happiness that gets me up every morning, energised. They say, “you are loved when you are born, you will be loved when you die, in between you have to manage.” For me it has always been about managing this in-between in such a way that there is a flow of constant love – both giving and getting at the same time – of different intensity at various stages in my life, because ultimately, it is only love that gives you a sense of humanity and a fuzzy warm feeling in the heart which directly gives you a sense of whether your life’s good, average or probably not. So yes, I am absolutely in love with many, meaningful people in my circle of life.
As time passes by, I look over my shoulder to see my beautiful wife, a caring friend to grow old with, and realise there’s another kind of love that exists in-between us. A love of respect, sprinkled with a pinch of romance that’ll carry us through our journey of life and for that feeling of awe when I wake up another 25,000 times every morning. It’s a beautiful thought.
In the end love is totally hormonal, so if your chemistry is strong, being in love with many could be an important formula to solve mankind’s many unresolved emotional issues related to health and happiness.

Let us try and define the most intangible, immeasurable, un-missable love of your life. Let’s travel back in time to the roots – Do you reach anywhere? Do you find anything? Because love and compassion are the core reasons whence and everything started. We have to separate three different entities here: love, art and the artist. Love is a story. Art is the expression. Artist is YOU. A true artist craves to craft that one piece of art in his/her entire lifetime. But, love comes with a beautiful thing. I have decoded and realised about love, the core constituents of love and all that it is made up of love:
However binding it may appear, love is meant to be free. Pure love is built upon no obligations, but choices. Honesty can be brutal, but that’s the second ingredient. Third is struggle. If you haven’t struggled to get what you have wanted, most chances you’ll never feel you have ever earned it.
Love remains an endearing lesson. You don’t necessarily love someone less because you also love someone else.
One of the biggest strengths of love is how deeply and subtly it gives you courage. We are most alive when we are in love. No scientist has ever created a barometer to measure love. That defines the infinity behind it.
“Love can happen to anything, not just any being.”
And yes – been there, done that. Feelings are feelings – the ones you feed are the ones that grow. Yes, it’s real love, you can be that close to two people at once – it’s usually slightly different with each person but not necessarily of less value with one than the other but the answer is contingent on how we define love. It is possible to be in love with multiple people at the same time. If you can feel friendship, kinship, protectiveness, empathy etc. for more than one other person at a time, why would love be any different?
Plato said, “When the emotion is love, everyone becomes a poet.” I say, “When the emotion is love, anything is possible.”
Love is a feeling of deep affection for another person. It is a warm feeling desired by everyone. You love someone whom you truly like and can never get bored of them no matter what they do. To love and to be loved is the best feeling on the planet. And yes, it is possible to be in love with more than one person at the same time.
Love is a feeling that we seek from the moment we are born, from a mother’s womb till the person dies, everyone is hungry for love. As love can happen to anyone at any time. A person can fall in love with a single person or more than one person but the question is with whom can you be happier, with whom can you share your secrets, with whom can you share your feelings and everything. Choosing the right person is the key, no matter how many people you fall in love with because that one person can mean the world to you while others just don’t feel right. You can love as many people as you want but at the same time you need to find someone with whom you can happily spend your entire life with. It is easier to fall in love than to continue that love for a long time. So, be in love with as many people as you want but choose the one with whom you can be crazily happy with.
