Middle ground? Explain.
Do you believe that someone can be in love with multiple people at once? Is it possible to feel that passionate about and close to at least two people at once? Maybe it's because I'm a clingy sentimentalist, but there are some people that made such an impact on my life, that helped me become a better person and whom I adore that I don't think I'll ever let go of what I feel for them; they're as much a part of me and my life as possible. But I know that there are reasons why it didn't work with them, and I do my best to leave the past there and embrace what I have and what that will lead to. Would it freak out present and possible future loves to know this? Probably, but there's nothing I can do, and I'm quite happy with how I feel, it's not like I'm going to endanger her or be distracted from her.
Sometimes, break ups happen, and contrary to popular belief, good couples can break up (needs more commas.) When you break up with someone that you had a good relationship with, it's possible that you still love them for who they are. It's not like you suddenly hate them and everything they stand for just because the two of you didn't work out. People kinda have trouble understanding this sometimes, but it happens for some people. However, this isn't really polyamory unless you want it to be. Even still, I can believe in polyamory. I can even believe in a polyamorous relationship, though I doubt I could ever properly function in one myself.

Nobody ever seems to answer, though. OT: I don't know. I [i]guess[/i] I believe in it, because I do believe in the saying "you never fall out of love." I think, for me at least, if I feel I'm in 'love' with someone (not just a silly crush or something), then those feelings are kind of permanent. Definitely notably decreased later on, but I still 'love' them to some degree; if I ever did.
