Caught in a love triangle?

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a love triangle? No, not the sexy one..the annoying kind. I’m talking about a love triangle that is completely unplanned, unwelcome, and unbearably annoying.

You meet someone great and things seem to be going really well. One day, they happen to mention an ex that is still in the picture. Oh, they aren’t “involved” anymore, they just decided to stay in each others’ lives. Then they tell you the person is married and was also married when they were involved.

What would you do in this situation? If you get the sense that the person you are dating still has feelings – and possibly sexual intimacy with someone else, shouldn’t you run for the hills? Would you try to talk it out and give it more time?

How do people manage to get themselves caught in a love triangle, anyway? If you are hung up on somebody else, shouldn’t you take a break from dating? This is worse than being the rebound girl/guy!

If you feel a strong connection with someone, would you be willing to “stick it out” until the love triangle situation goes away or is that a emotional suicide mission?

Is it truly possible to be torn between two people? Isn’t one of them getting the short end of the stick?

@ Willie…what to look for when a team is on the attack is when they have “numbers” (more attackers than defenders opposing them). that is when things happen. Usually happens after aplayer fakes a defender out of his shorts and makes a run. You can see the play developing three or four passes out.

ITL…what Exile isn’t telling you is that Liverpool is a very “working class” city and more than a little rough around the edges. so what he said about the women is fundemenatally true ;-)

RandyT – I didnt get that until i understood the Offsides rules. Now I anticiapate and see the strategy. My only problem is now the stoppage time and flopping. I think the refs have too much power. Stoppage time, yellow/Red cards etc.
I have a few SA’s I’m cool with and they school me on the game before they get too drunk. Then it’s just hollering whistling and throwing cans.

In the World Cup six years ago, the referees allowed them to almost mug each other and got criticized. The last Cup and the Women’s Cup the referees tightened up too much. Hard to get right. Contrary to popular American belief, it is a contact sport.

What is cool is when a Western European team, i.e Germany, England, etc. who play a very deliberate game, play against a Latin style, i.e a Brazil or Argentina, which is very “free form” with all attacking and all defending. Hard to get a fix on what is happening.

In Shona culture,they say ‘beer is tastier when there are women around’

I don’t drink beer but I think my beer drinking African American brothers and Swisses will concur with that statement. :lol:

I’ll never understand people who do this.

Interesting saying, Ex. I like it.

In America they say women are prettier when beer is around. :lol:

of course in these days of economic insecurity, they also suggest “going ugly early” to save money. ;-)

Last time I wandered into a “Coyote Uglt” bar, there were 16 women dancing on the bar at one time.

There are five things that you cannot recover in life:

(1) The Stone………..after it’s thrown
(2) The Word…………after it’s said,
(3) The Occasion……..after it’s missed, and
(4) The Time…………after it’s gone
(5) A person…………after they die.

Yeah, I meant the other coyote ugly, Randyt. The kind where you wake up next to someone so ugly you gnaw your own arm off to keep from waking them. :)

“Go ugly early”….I nearly sprayed water all over my monitor….that is hilarious!

@ ITL …I know the term. That is what the bar was named after. Just made me think about it. Not sure if any are still open.
