How do you feel about polyamorous relationships?

My boyfriend and I have discussed this and were wanting to add another girl to our relationship whom we love and trust. I am open to the idea, but I am also a bit scared. What is your take on this? The girl being added is a long time friend, and we would all be living together ect.

I guess it can work for some people but I think there's a large chance it would end horribly and could ruin your relationship with one or maybe both of them

Thanks for your opinion. I kind of agree with you but I am also open toward it.

With the right people, communication, honesty, and patience, it is amazing. I have two partners. They are both male. They were childhood best friends that had moved apart. We all click fantastically. My previous other relationships aside from my now husband weren't as amazing. There was friction, distrust, and competition.

I love being poly and can't imagine my life being any different. It's amazing. But it is unlikely to just fall into perfect poly relationships.

I'm glad to hear it has worked out well for you, and I hope it does the same for me. I know it can take some work and requires a lot of honesty, trust, and love. I want it to work so bad and I hope we end up in a fantastic relationship like yours. Best wishes to you..

It isn't for me but I don't look down on others who do take part. I understand your fear, I would be as well.

I personally think you should prepare yourself for it to not work out and possibly wait for you all to move in together.

How long have you been with your boyfriend? I really hope it works out for you! Good luck sweetheart!

It's not for me, but I know it works for other people. As long as everyone involved is happy, there's open communication, honesty and empathy towards one another, then it can certainly work. You just have to be careful and make sure it's what you want. And if it doesn't work out, stop!

It's definitely something to read up on, though. It could make your relationship that much richer and meaningful for you guys, or it could get ugly. Jealousy is probably the biggest issue. Whatever you do, good luck!

To each their own this isn't for me. I would suggest a major talk of what you expect of out the relationship and all that.

I am all for long time friends being lasting lovers. Our current third was a long time friend and we are having a great time. It does take work, and a willingness to be bullheaded about sticking together but it's entirely possible and very rewarding. Read up on some of the other stories on this forum...there's a wealth of information here on the do's and don'ts !
