Have You Ever Been Caught in a Love Triangle?

Remember Lisa Nowak, the astronaut accused of stalking her lover's new lover? She's avoiding prison after pleading guilty to lesser charges, having already served a couple days in the klink after she was arrested for her notorious crime.

Let me refresh your memory: in 2007, the temporarily love-crazed astronaut drove all the way from Houston to Orlando in a NASA diaper (the better to avoid bathroom breaks), sprayed her astronaut lover's new girlfriend Colleen Shipman with pepper spray in the parking lot of the Orlando International Airport, and was subsequently arrested and charged with attempted kidnapping with intent to do bodily harm and burglary of a vehicle using a weapon. She's not getting a stiffer sentence because, according to the judge, she doesn't have a prior criminal record and because of her service as an astronaut and later the Navy (NASA fired her after this incident).

It's pretty shocking that someone who was a successful astronaut could become so deranged. Have you ever been caught in a love triangle? Hopefully, you didn't completely go cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.

I was the victim of the love triangle! My roommie had a crush on this guy but he was interested in me even though I never said anything more to him than the standard "hi, how are you" Anyway my roommate got mad at me, not talking to me for weeks, not eating with me for weeks. And I really didn't do anything. Innocent bystander.

I had a relationship with my best friend's ex lover. It was a big mess and everybody got hurt - but nobody wore a diaper.

Yep, but I wasn't the psycho one. Some people just don't get it when it's over.

Same as #4. It was back in high school and I was friends with this girl. She dated this guy for a few days, he lost his virginity to her in a casual ordeal, and he realized that he just liked her as a friend. Well then the guy was seated next to me in one of our classes. We talked over a period of time, and we realized we liked each other. My "friend" went nuts and told people that she wishes she were me and that she would do anything to keep him and I apart. Him and I started dating, I stopped being friends with that girl, and him and I have been together for 3 years now. We did go on a break a year ago and he had sex with that girl again. I was obviously very hurt and upset, but we worked it out and have since been back together. He still talks to this girl sometimes, which I don't like, but I don't want to be the controlling/jealous girlfriend and yell at him about it. The girl is good friends with his sister, so he can't exactly avoid her.

Yes, I was not the crazy one though. There are some selfish individuals out there who can't accept reality and move on.
