Polyamourous

How many poly people are here? Ive put it on my profile but of course I don't think people read the profile all the time, which is fine. I like having conversations to find out about others 😁 If you don't know what polyamourous is, it means, being ethically non monogamous. This means that all my partner's know I have other partners and potentially will have other new partners in the future. It obviously gets more complex than that, as with all relationships and there are different kinds of relationship within poly.

I think the world would be a better place if there were more polyamourites (?). Historically, it seemed more widespread in ancient cultures with modern cultures pushing a monogamous mandate as the norm. Maybe one day it will be the norm again. It feels like humans are more naturally adapted to be polyamourous, but repress it because it is frowned upon by society.

Monogamy does seem to be quite a modern concept and I believe, but I'm not a history buff, was pushed by Christianity. I think it's fine if people feel monogamy is for them, my nesting partner is monogamous but I'd also say never feel stuck as either one.

I agree, in the past, there were far more pagan and agnostic cultures that made fornication the norm. However I do not agree that humanity is more adapted to this form of sexuality. Humans are innately selfish and extremely jealous animals. I would not think, greed and jealousy would be very good traits for relationships with multiple partners.

That's your opinion. If you read above you will see that I've acknowledged jealously and I'd agree that it's a natural emotion shared by all humans.

Jealousy and greed are natural, I agree. This is where boundaries and communication come in handy.

I don't mind differing opinions. I love who ever I love and the people I love support me in that, which I think is awesome.

you do you, but leave the kids out of this exposer and don't have an army of kids born into your lifestyle choices. That's best and my firm opinion.

I don't identify as polyamorous as I am heterosexually oriented. I do identify as consensually non-monogamous. I find it odd that potential partners demand monogamy even before knowing one another. I'm not locked into non monogamy but I do demand the choice. It is my body, therefore it is my choice whether I give or don't give monogamy. What I find happens is that if a partner and I connect on more levels, then a discussion ensues as to whether that is something we wish. The underlying philosophy is honesty while pure monogamy is about control. I prefer honesty in all its hideous painful glory

I'm hetero and poly. So many different dynamics in poly relationships and it's all about having a customisable relationship with consensual boundaries.

Catchy but I'm not sure it'll sell. I think there should be an achievement for discovering all the types of pain, that way there's incentive lol
