What's your "brand" of polyamory?

What's your "brand" of polyamory?

I know that's a weird question but I think there are definitely different types of polyamorous relationships, different "levels," different "brands"? I don't know exactly how to put it. But I think it would be interesting to see what kind of dynamics are in different relationships. (For ex., currently I am feeling very monogamous because of a sour patch in some past poly stuff, but in polyamory I had one "main" partner with one "secondary" partner, living totally separately without the partners interacting with each other much.) I also haven't had a lot of experience myself, so I'm just interested in seeing opinions of other poly people who may have had more.

Not sure where this fits. I am a married female (married to a male). We share a girlfriend. She does not live with us, but we are currently exclusive as a triad. We 'swing' but only as a triad, but are on hiatus with that for now...because oddly enough, some jealousy issues cropped up between the hubby and girlfriend when they were both sleeping with others (not me). It is a work in progress.

I am in a closed triad. I'm the girlfriend of a married couple. We all date each other, and we all live together. They have children who live with us, and I want one of my own to add to the family. All relationships have issues to work through including ours but that is how life goes and nothing is perfect.

To a monogamous couple like us that sounds kind of complicated. Can we ask, how long have you been in the triad relationship ?
Wish you the best.

I really like the idea of a closed triad. However, I have heard these are like unicorns, very rare.

I'm a poly girl. My situation's probably pretty unique. I have 4 main partners - a BF and 3 GFs, then I'm also open beyond that, but with women only, so I have like a secondary tier of girls who aren't GF level but we're close, then another tier outside of that which is even looser, and then the randoms I hook up here and there. All my main GFs have the same liberties, but not the BF. And the same rules apply to their relationships, so if they have BFs, they can only have one and he can't play outside.

I'm definitely the most active outside the circle but I'm kinda the founder and leader of the operation anyway so I suppose that's not too surprising.

btw just ftr, ploy and open aren't synonymous. Poly specifically means multiple concurrent romantic relationships, not just out there hooking up at will. That's being open. A lot of ppl seem to get that mixed up.
