The Love Triangle: Why Triangulation Is So Intriguing To A Narcissist?

Love Triangle

Of course, you don’t. Where is the excitement in that?

You have been fed a daily diet of triangulation throughout your life so you actually regard it as something to be expected and something that excites you.

Best love triangles throughout history

In order to prove this point, I have compiled, off the top of my head, as many love triangles as I could think of in literature, film, and real-life in just five minutes. Consider the following: –

1. Literature

Twelfth Night, Dr. Zhivago, Dangerous Liaisons, Tale of Two Cities, Lolita, The Great Gatsby, Atonement, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Don Quixote, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Age of Innocence, The Phantom of the Opera, The Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Harry Potter and my favorite Wuthering Heights

2. Film

Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, His Girl Friday, The Graduate, Oklahoma! Damage, Titanic, Bridget Jones, Closer, Vanilla Sky, Sabrina, Grifters, She’s The Man (Twelfth Night), Indecent Proposal, Being John Malkovich, Fight Club (imagine being triangulated by an imaginary person created by yourself!)

3. Real Life

Cleopatra, Mark Antony, and Julius Caesar (which actually went further as Mark Antony had two wives already)

Helen of Sparta, Menelaus, and Paris of Troy 

Meg Ryan, Dennis Quaid, and Russell Crowe

Bill Clinton, Hilary Clinton, and Monica Lewinsky

Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, and Eddie Fisher (Taylor and Burton met whilst filming Cleopatra – triangles within triangles!)

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattison, and Rubert Sanders (not only did Sanders also have a wife and kids but Stewart seemingly thought her fictional triangulation was not enough and wanted a real-life version too!)

I would be interested to know if you think that any of our kind exists in those love triangles and who it is. I am sure you can think of many others and please do make those suggestions. This is what I came up with within a short time and it does not end there.

You have triangulated by-products and advertisers – are you an Xbox player or PlayStation, red or brown sauce on your bacon sandwich, Pepsi or Coca-Cola – on it goes.

With such a backdrop of triangulation across society, thrust in your face every day you are consequently conditioned in the way that I have described. You have no chance but to be affected in this way. Accordingly, when our kind comes along, the master practitioners of triangulation, you do not stand a chance.

Tudor HG

I am HG Tudor. I am a narcissistic sociopath (some state psychopath – this remains a matter of debate by the profession concerning the current application of sociopath or psychopath). By my terminology, I am a Greater Elite Narcissist. You will learn here what that means along with all about the other types of narcissists and empaths too. I convey this is an effective manner based on my perspective. I know what I am and I know the best way to communicate this to you. I am a very effective communicator. I write extensively about what this means and what I am. I have practiced this dark art for many years, I have honed and crafted my abilities. I am aware of what I am and I am engaged in understanding why I am this way and why I act as I do. I am sharing these ongoing revelations.HG Tudor is the author of several books.
