Two men who are best friends claim they have formed a throuple with a woman they met on holiday, after both of them ‘fell in love’ with her at the same time.
Dino De Souza, 40, and Saulo Gomes, 30, both from Brazil, first met Olga, 27, from Bélarus, at a local bar during a holiday in Barcelona on 19 August, 2019.
The friends were both captivated by Olga, who was hanging out at the venue with a group of friends, and each wanted to ask her out.
Torn on how to resolve the situation without causing issues with their friendship, both men approached Olga – and say they eventually began going on dates together as a trio.
Now suppposedly living as a ‘throuple’ in France, they have not made clear how their intimate life works or whether they all share a bed, but it’s believed that the men are only in a sexual relationship with Olga and not each other.

Dino and Saulo say they had never considered becoming a throuple, and claim they simply fell head over heels with Olga, and it became a natural development in their relationship with her.
‘Saulo and I arrived in Barcelona and went directly to a bar to see the Champions League game which was showing that night,’ Dino recalled.
‘We entered the bar and Olga was there with a group of friends.
‘We approached her and we invited her to go and get a drink with us, and that was where our beautiful story began.
The throuple’s families and loved ones were all shocked by their decision to live and love together

Saulo, Olga and Dino have been together for a year and a half and go on dates like any other couple
‘For us, it is not a question of being in a relationship with three people.
‘It’s a question of chemistry, we happened to be connected. The chemistry was so strong that we are impressed to know what the other is thinking or feeling.
‘I would like to be able to describe what we feel, but we do not have adjectives to describe this feeling.’
Having dated for nearly a year and a half, Dino, Saulo and Olga travel, go to restaurants and go on dates just like a typical couple would, but as a trio.

At first, the throuple received shocked reactions from friends and family about their unique relationship, as their loved ones struggled to understand it.
Despite the initial backlash, the trio did their best to explain their situation calmly and their friends and family are now supportive.
However, they still get confused looks and negative comments from people in public – but choose to ignore these and focus on their relationship instead.
Dino said: ‘In the beginning, we received many shocking messages from friends and family trying to understand what was happening.
‘We have been calm, explaining to them what we feel for Olga and that we have not changed as people, but instead have grown from this relationship.
‘We don’t get a lot of comments but we get a lot of confused looks from people.
‘When they have an opportunity to get to know us and talk, they completely change the way they were thinking about our relationship.

‘They get surprised and change negative opinions that they had before.
‘We are very mature and philosophical about life. We always try to stay positive and do not waste our energy with negative things.
‘We also don’t give a f*** what people think about us!’
Every relationship has its ups and downs – and even more so in a throuple.
When they need to come to an agreement, Dino, Olga and Saulo usually vote on it to finalise any major decisions.
The throuple try not to resort to arguments when they disagree with each other but instead strive to find solutions and take the high road.

Dino said: ‘When it’s time to decide something, we vote and the vote that has the highest number wins.
‘We do not have negative points. I will not say it will always be that way, but for the moment, we do not let the negativity enter into our relationship.
‘We always have discussions and find solutions to avoid negative situations.
‘If one person has a problem, that becomes a problem for all three of us.
‘We stop everything we are doing and try to solve it as soon as possible to preserve peace in our relationship and avoid unnecessary stress.’
Dino, left, with Olga and Saulo, said that if one member of the throuple had an issue, it became an issue for the whole group

Describing their roles in the unusual grouping, Dino said: ‘I’m the child of the relationship and I bring the positivity.
‘Saulo is the serious and organised one, while Olga is the distracted and disorganised person, but brings unconditional and pure love to the relationship.’
The trio, who currently live in Toulouse, France, also plan to have children together in the future.
Dino added: ‘We want Olga to mother children from me and from Saulo.
‘We plan to travel the world and share our philosophy on our way of life in the simplest way possible, while developing our business.’
