A Conversation for Polyamory
Wonko Started conversation Jul 6, 2001
Hi Daroo, I'm poly too and I like your entry! My experience with yealousy is: I don't have any, my partners have quite much, but it's constantly lessening due to their awareness of the stability of the relationships. How is your experience with polyamory?

Here's my "once a week hello." Thanks for the feedback (and hug!).
My experience with polyamory is: I'm in a committed, long term, non-monogamous two-person relationship. Both of us are able to pursue outside partners, with "be safe", "come home" and "tell me" rules. I used the term "pursue," because right now, things don't seem to be getting past the pursuit stage
We've been non-monogamous for about 3 years now, and so far it's the best decision we made (except for agreeing to date in the first place). Even though we had some dodgy moments figuring out how we'd be poly (and we're still figuring out lots, of course), we haven't had any knock-down-drag-em-out fights since we decided to be non-monogamous. It's not for everyone, but (for now, at least) it's certainly for us!
