Love triangles: How to choose between two amazing prospects

16 October 2015, 11:19 Anne Muigai

Love triangles. We love them, and we hate them. Sometimes, we even wish we could be in one. Many times, we long to snap out of them when they turn ugly. Love triangles can be a fairy or horribly life-sucking. And hence, it is important to know how to deal with them when you find yourself in one. But how do you possibly choose between two awesome prospects? And it is not just for romantic relationships but also for other loves in your life, like career and hobbies.

There are many methods you could use like following your heart, seeking help from family and friends, and many others. However, the laying out of pros and cons appeals to me most as it allows you to weigh what is most important, of priority and need.

It is never easy when you have to choose between two painfully fitting mates, or between love and a career you adore. Of the two, the former is the most challenging. I know many people who have left the most wonderful people for the wrong partners. Mostly, the two seem to be equally good on the surface.

But if you look carefully, there are pointers that can differentiate them. For example, it is easy to know a totally fake personality from a real one. This art requires total attention and focus if you are to succeed. Observe your prospects’ mannerisms closely, changes in their behavior and reactions, or even how they present themselves.

Relationship experts insist that an essential trait to look for is consistency. They argue that guys who have a seemingly illogical life story are a bad fit for anyone. The point here is that if they often give incoherent events of their lives, change behaviors time and again or overreact unnecessarily, they are just not fit, and you should choose the other person.

It is hard to choose between a career and love life. From an idealistic point of view, it shouldn't be a choice. A good relationship should give you the support you need to succeed in your career, and a good career should help you gain confidence and finances that will improve relationships in your life. While it’s never really easy to choose, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

One, that both aspects are equally important to you. Two, you will have to make a choice when it is necessary. And three among others, you have to make the best choice, if you have to. If your love life is more satisfying than your career, I say, stick with it. It will give you confidence and a stable mind frame to pursue a career in future. But if your job is promising and fulfills you more than just a guy in your life, stick with it. In the career line, you will meet more thrilling prospects than those you left behind.
