What is a polyamorous relationship?

Does it mean you and your partner date other people or that you have 3/4 etc way relationships where everyone is dating each other?

Yes and yes...it can be both or something completely different! Simply put polyamory is a lovestyle where the participants are not required to love only one person at a time either platonically, romantically or sexually. It can be just about any configuration and a couple may be poly without having other lovers/partners...they can simply be open to the possibility that love may come at some time in the future and they welcome the idea.

Poly groupings can be any gender or sexual orientation. For example in my triad we are two males and a female. We have three kids and two of us are heteroflexible and the third is hetero. We are working toward a shared living arrangement (we have a border between us ) and we've been together for going on ten years as a triad. We are not a closed unit, which means we are open to the possibility of other partners being added but we focus on stability over numbers. We have several playmates, some shared, and we belong to a swing group that is more like a naked social gathering than a true swing club.

We are not that different from the majority of poly groups and we are totally unique as well. Much like monogamous relationships there is lots of room for uniqueness.

Does that help?

That seems so confusing to me but I am sure if it's something you are involved in it is the normal. I am glad it works for you. I can't say that would be something I would ever be comfortable with.

Thank you! That is amazing! I didn't think that it would be possible or that people actually did this. I've always said I would want polyamorous relationships but people think I'm mad. I hope some day people accept polyamorous marriages!!
