Maybe in the future, just maybe, I ‘d like to try it out. To see my boundaries. To question society. 17 months ago
Poly is a challenge, you need to make sure you have the right people and the right terms and the right boundaries with total honesty, it is not for the faint of heart but in the right situation can make life wonderful. 2 years ago
I began looking for a relationship outside of my marriage at my husband’s suggestion.
Long story short- after two years of deep, meaningful relationships that ended because others wanted me and me alone, my husband began cheating on me.
This was a deeply layered, highly emotionally volatile situation.
It ended in me being choked and beaten up, moving into a women’s shelter with my daughter and (so far) nine months of seemingly endless divorce proceedings.
My advice- do it while you’re young- before you have children. experience what love is before you have committed yourself wholly to someone else.
It can be liberating and fulfilling knowing more than one person on sucj an intimate level. I feel like I’m all screwed upside inside now, unfortunately. 2 years ago
didn’t mean to enter into this kind of thing as i had always been monogamous before, but i can’t say that there are no benefits to this kind of setup. 3 years ago
honestly i knew since i was in middle school (or even before) that i liked boys and girls
my best friend in middle school was this girl deby
and she was the one i came out to first because i had developed feelings for her
me and her dated on and off because she would get a boyfriend and i would get one and we would keep breaking it off because of that
now im a senior in high school and she is a freshman in college
and we both have boyfriends
we talked to our boyfriends and they are both completely okay and supportive of me and deby being together
and im really happy that i dont have to only be with one person when i kno i love 2
if anyone has any questions
im completely open

I can’t do this. Just the idea of when my boyfriend hangs out a little too close with girls bothers me, so unless I took a selfish route and only I was able to choose partners, it’s not going to happen. I still like the idea, I just think realistically it’s not for me, at least mentally in my life right now. 6 years ago
Since my early relationship days no matter how ecstatically happy and in love I was with my partner, I always wanted relationships with other women as well. I thought this was a completely unrealistic situation and resigned myself to standard monogamous relationships.
After getting married for the second time, I found polyamory groups and people. During a brief period of time we opened up our marriage and I was able to pursue other relationships and did successfully have one such relationship. Unfortunately my wife was not comfortable with our open marriage and wanted us to go back to a monogamous relationship.
My wife is a wonderful woman and I love her very much, so I have decided that being with her is worth giving up my polyamory. I am at peace with my decision and am not angry or upset about choosing to remain monogamous, but I still know that I am polyamorous.
I have met many wonderful people in the poly community and have learned from them. There are some great folks out there living life the way I thought could only happen in dreams. If this is your dream, before becoming involved in a standard relationship do yourself a favor and learn more about polyamory and give it a try if it feels right. 7 years ago
