This is a question randomly drawn from The Book of Questions: Love & Sex
“When you are attracted to someone and another person begins to show a lot of interest in him or her, does it strengthen or diminish your own feelings? Has such a competitive urge ever led you to believe you were more in love with someone than you really were?”
I love writing about love triangles.
In one of my WIP’s, my heroine was rescued -when left for dead and lost her memory- by another woman her age and is now her roommate. The roommate has had a crush on a particular guy since college, and now my heroine is working for him. And, he is coming on to her.
The roommate is beside herself, goes into a rage and throws the heroine out on a cold, snowy night. And the drama continues. This question is perfect for making me think about my own experiences on the topic as well as to dig deeper into the roommate character.
I can recall a few instances in high school where I didn’t think I was that interested in a guy until one of my friends decided she was...then suddenly, he looked so much better...
Can a competitive urge to be the one he chooses blind you to your real feelings?
Have you ever had this experience before? Care to share how it all went down?
