Wow. I'm glad for you guys.
Thanks very much for sharing. I appreciate the lovely input. It gives more understanding to how things are or could be.
I'm glad you had a great experience....sounds like you were all pretty compatible. Thanks for sharing.
Oh by the way, I see our usual grump is attacking you, bragging again about how true her mate is. I believe that once a Player, always a Player. Some people lie to themselves so they can endure their life.
It would hurt so bad, knowing that Lillian is with someone else.
In an extreme case an open relationship might work....
What if you or you partner was confined to a wheelchair....?
While I have plenty of friends that are in those types of relationships and I respect their choices for me I am personally a one man only kind of girl.
No, my husband and I are dedicated to one another, we don't need a third party in our marriage, that would be pretty crowded.
I would have no problem if we were simply dating.
I don't know how I would feel if it was a more serious relationship. I can foresee a multitude of possible problems.
No. I would have to work on my trust issues first. And I'm not sure that's even for me. Only time will tell.
Polyamory is like renting your body and feelings to a person, and then renting them out to another person, and then renting some more out to a few other people, until whatever initial 'connection' you had with the first person is now little more than a facade. Polyamoroys people are afraid of commitment to one person. They are afraid of real intimacy, this why it's easier for them to keep everyone at arm's distance by not committing to anything, or giving oneself completely to another. We may be sexually wired for polyamory but we are not mentally wired that way. Best to just be single and sleep around or call it 'friends with benefits'. At least that way, you are being honest with yourself.
that trash has nothing to do with this post, except that he cheats and doesn't respect any marital boundaries.
Probably not. I had a buddy I dated a while before he got married. Eventually he had a young woman live with he and his wife. Wife couldn't stand all that neverending sex. So that worked for them for a few years. I didn't want to be an extra so that is why we became just buddies.
I can't even find one person who wants to put up with me.
yep i would be fine with this
Prostitution is a polyamorous relationship. I am pretty sure that they would be indistinguishable in any case.
1. the philosophy or state of being in love or romantically involved with more than one person at the same time.
1. polygamy in which a woman has more than one husband.
a pattern of mating in which a female animal has more than one male mate.
1. the practice or custom of having more than one wife or husband at the same time.
the condition of bearing some male, some female, and sometimes some perfect flowers on the same plant.
Plenty of confusion there no matter what word you use.
