People are terrible and everything sucks

I’d like to request that we really think about how we use the term ‘love triangle’

elledeau:

It usually implies that there are three people, and each has an interest (that may or may not be requited) in one of the others.

It seems like lately that term is used to describe one person (A) being pursued by two other people (B & C). A may be interested in either/both B & C, or neither. I don’t think this is really a triangle. If A is a point, and B & C are points, there are two lines created. One goes from A to B and the other from A to C, but there is no line between B & C. At best this is a love angle.

It’s become common to refer to this as a love triangle, maybe even accepted, but I don’t think it’s correct. And if you describe this situation as a “love triangle” be prepared for your inaccuracy to cause a lot of confusion.

I’m totally down with calling that a love vertex
