A floppy relationship triangle exists when the man in question is at the apex of that triangle and the two women are represented by the other two points.
Each woman is connected to the man but they are not usually connected to each other. The gamut can run from two women who have known one another in the past, even possibly friends, to total strangers who are now connected to each other only by being attached in some way to the same man.
Triangles are stable when all three legs are connected.
What that means in a three-way relationship is that each day is securely connected.
If the separated man isn’t sure about reconnecting with his partner and a new relationship would make that option far less likely, he may not want to lose those choices so chooses to keep his options open by separating those two worlds.
The heartache that arises if and when those clandestine relationships are discovered never harbors a good outcome.
When that happens, they may not be as susceptible to any new relationship.
Secrecy If the separated man is concerned that a new relationship might inflame the other partner’s decision, he may choose to keep that new relationship quiet.
That is especially true if the new relationship can threaten the other partner’s potential access to resources or loss of what they have.They are at a loss when it happens, but still feel attached to their history, friends, children, financial situation, mutual families, and a deeper caring.After a time apart, they realize that they want to make the relationship work and are highly motivated to make that happen.When they are initially back together, they often feel a renewed attachment and often don’t want to deal with the reasons they so often split up.As those problem must eventually re-emerge, the subsequent breakups are likely to happen more quickly.
