S had said she wouldn’t date him if he were monogamous, so he gave it a try. Now he is in a relationship with T, and S has decided that “meaningless sex with strangers” aren’t what she wants. Oliver is afraid S will ask him to stop seeing T, since S has no relationship partners. Has anyone of you ever come across a situation where you've been frustrated with non-monogamy? How can you manage a situation where one partner has other partners while the other one doesn't? It’s the people involved, not the relationship style you should question. Relationships don’t have to be equal; they only need to be fair. Your polyamory isn’t contingent upon your partner having a certain number of relationships/partners.  Relationship ruler: is it making you a happier and healthier version of yourself? You can be gay and not dating. You can be poly and only dating one person (like Minx) You get to decide who you date and how you date them. So does she. She doesn’t get to say who you date (although she can certainly establish a boundary that if you date other people, she won’t be with you). 17:05 Join the conversation To join the online conversation around this and other episodes, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

J Use regular relationship check ins as a space to bring up any issues 22:15 What is your take on hierarchies? If it works for everyone involved and it’s transparent, fine. But it doesn’t work for everyone (or me). The challenge with hierarchies is that it sets up a permission model. Be aware if you are talking about power structure or entanglement levels? If the latter, “nesting partner” might be more useful than “primary.” 26:15 My mom thinks my polyamory is a phase. Do you know folks who have lived out their lives as poly? Allena Gabosch, Oberon Zell-Ravenhart, and many others. Just as with child-rearing, having an extended network to help you in your old age is valuable. 31:15 Contact us Questions? Comments? Feedback?
