How would you suggest a person state they are poly-amorous without seeming creepy?
I understand that most people are monogamous and would be turned off when seeing that statement or that the person messaging them is married.
Bringing more people into a toxic situation can cause a great amount of distress for everyone involved.
One of the first things I think about when I meet someone I’m very attracted to is whether my current partner likes them.
In those cases, they took time to work on their partners’ insecurities before taking on a new relationship. What things do you expect to do in your relationship? It’s not important that you know exactly what you want from the beginning of the relationship.
Will you spend time with their family and vice versa? If so, how often will you communicate with one another, and how? But it’s important that you communicate about your expectations to your partner(s). Relationships can be so fulfilling, and loving people can be such a beautiful and rewarding experience.
But one relationship – however fulfilling – can’t make up for a relationship that makes you unhappy.
For obvious reasons, it’s not a good idea to take on one relationship when the other one isn’t in good shape.
For example, if one partner is dishonest with you, you might feel like you’re unable to trust them.
On top of being polyamorous, I am also queer – and relationships between queer people are also really underrepresented in the media.
I didn’t know what to expect, where to find support, or whose advice to take.
