Polyamorous dating website
flickr/Neighty (Natália Reis) The idea of dating someone who is polyamorous had never crossed my mind until recently, when I met a polyamorous man on a dating website who asked me out for coffee.As a monogamous woman, I was curious about what it’d be like to date someone polyamorous. It was cut short as he got into a car and left with one of his other partners, leaving me awkwardly sitting in the coffee shop, wondering what had just happened.The experience got me wondering: What do successful relationships between monogamous and polyamorous people look like?
How do partners navigate these distinct approaches to relationships? Keep in mind that experiences are always diverse, and these narratives are a snapshot, not a complete picture.
“I think the challenges Carl and I have in our relationships with monogamous people have been different, and even more different from other people’s relationships because of the weird dynamic we have.
For me, with Quincy, I have worried about balancing time, which is probably a common challenge.
But they help to provide contours to a narrative that’s too often blunted.
