All those things you listed about polyamory/open relationships--sooo agree! I've always been headed toward this lifestyle, and I'm finally embracing that it's my preference.
Digging it so far. I feel like I can be so much freer with my connections with people. It's great. Relationships are all about exploration and growth, so I like being able to form connections whenever I feel drawn to--and I like lacking the pressure of being with someone "perfectly" compatible. I feel like unconditional love and acceptance is much easier.
I should check out the poly groups around here sometime. I'd be interested to talk to others who are doing it, since I'm new to this type of relationship.
From what I know, you don't have "breakups" but people still lose interest or move on, right?
Good question. I've been thinking about that. It seems like it would be more of a lose interest/move on type of "break up" after you no longer are growing in the relationship (which seems the natural course of things), but I don't actually know.
