Love Quadrangle is a writing trope where four people are vying for a romantic relationship. This may take a form very close to a love triangle, where "three people vie for the love of a fourth", but sometimes it can be more complicated, as illustrated by urban dictionary:
A person falling in love with another, however that “other” likes someone’s who isn’t them. Which that person likes another person. And yet that person has a crush on someone else, which that someone else happens to like the first person.
Perhaps because of its complex nature its use is fairly rare.
