The answer to conflict many times is not finding another person to date. Often the same issues are present in new relationships eventually and then the cycle is repeated. Bringing another person into your life while currently involved in a committed relationship is wrong and will not lead to the desires of one’e heart.
Leon Asks Nancy:
“I’m caught in an intense love triangle with a girl I’ve been with for three years and a girl I met many years ago. Things have been rocky for the past couple months with my current girlfriend: from lies to pointless arguments. The other girl lives in another state and she treats me really well. I have strong feelings for her. My girl and I now just argue. I love her but I don’t want to string either of them on.”
Many people believe the grass is always greener in love when things are not working out well. The problem with this type of mindset is the fact that the problems do not go away because you have changed the person you are involved with. You are still the common denominator. It is important to work through the challenges and issues which spark the arguments. I guarantee that if you break off with your current girlfriend and pursue this other woman, the same barriers to love will arise. Whatever you decide, it is important to stop seeing two people at once because they both believe they are in an exclusive relationship with you, and that is simply wrong.
