So, what is your opinion about stealing someone's boyfriend or girlfriend; is it nice or is it not so nice? There are two schools of thought on this issue. It really boils down to your conscience and what it is telling you to do and then you need to run after that thought and make it a reality, while maintaining a mature attitude.

First of all, I would like to say that you cannot really steal someone away from someone else. We call it stealing, but it's not really stealing. Of course you can pursue someone whom you think is a perfect match, who belongs to another person, but that person you are pursuing doesn't have to end up with you. That person has a choice; unless of course, you were holding a gun to his or her head, but let's not go there; that's for another discussion. Basically, when you are trying to steal someone who is involved in a relationship, you are pursuing someone and if this person willfully leaves that relationship, it is his or her own choice.

We all are responsible for our actions and our choices and no one can make you do anything. We can pressure someone into doing something that he or she does not want to do, but in the end, the choice is that person's, not yours. So really, you are not technically stealing someone away. If this person leaves that relationship that person was already dissatisfied with the relationship he or she was in. If this person was completely satisfied and involved in a healthy emotionally mature dating relationship, then he or she would not be desirous of leaving that relationship for any reason.

What if you feel that this person involved in a relationship is your perfect match? Should you try to steal this person away for yourself? Is that nice or the right thing to do? Personally, I don't think that it's the right thing to do, but that's because I value committed relationships and think that we need to work hard and put in a concerted effort to making our relationships work. Of course, people do have differing views than I do.

However, if you really feel that this person is your perfect match, then go for your happiness and try to see if this person is interested in you. However, if you go down this road, make sure that you do not become obnoxious in any way or stalk this person. If you are creating a problem in this person's relationship, which is an understatement to say the least, then you should step back once you have made your feelings known to this person. You do not want to irritate this person's boyfriend or girlfriend or cause any further problems that would put you or anyone else in harm's way. Always be mature in your actions and keep the best interests of this person, whom you believe is your perfect match, in mind as you pursue him or her. Download your FREE Dating Ebook @ href=""> now.
