Love Triangles: What to do when your partner is attracted to someone else

August 24, 2012

Love Triangles are certainly interesting, but only if you are an outsider. If you are in one, then there is a high probability that you are facing some serious anxieties and you are in a dilemma. If you’re a Casanova type, and not serious about your partner in the relationship, then it is an entirely different story. But if you are dating somebody seriously, then you would need to do a bit of thinking.

Love triangles arise when one of the partners starts showing an interest in somebody out of the relationship. This can lead to serious issues such as cheating or may even lead to a break up between the partners. More often than not, the love triangles turn out to be temporary attractions, and hence should be avoided at all costs.

If you are a victim of sorts, in the sense that your partner in the relationship is very attracted to somebody else, then there are certain things that you need to do to ensure peace and happiness. An unsorted relationship can lead to extremely annoying and anxious situations, and would deprive you of happiness. When a relationship does not make you happy in spite of all your efforts towards it, then you should know it is time to move on. There is nothing to be gained from an unsuccessful relationship. It hangs on with you, preventing you from being with somebody who can keep you happy, and at the same time gives you a lot of grief. Hence it is best to move on.

When your partner is looking interested in somebody else, it is some time for reflection. You need to reflect on your relationship, and think whether it has potential to last long term or not. You need to test whether you have faith in the relationship. If you do have faith, you would need to restrain your partner. It would be hard and harsh, but you need to be strict to be good. Some people are carried away by attraction, and hence need to be brought back to their senses. Also, the attraction doesn’t mean that the love towards you has died down, since such attraction happens due to immaturity. These phases happen in people’s lives and they should be forgiven for that. It is because the people themselves were not entirely aware of the gravity of the situation, and never intended to lose you. While such mistakes should be rectified, they should not let you end the relationship, because it may be a very long time before you find a new relationship with as much potential.

If in retrospect, the relationship doesn’t look to have too much potential, and the partner has always been involving in such activities and his feelings and actions do not seem genuine, then you might consider breaking up. If it has happened once, it can happen again, and if the person is not sincere about you, then there is no reason to be in the relationship. Being single is much better than being in an unhappy relationship, and so one should not worry too much and move on.
