Episode 3: Why We're Polyamorous - YouTube:

Friendly reminder that I also at one point in my blog life made some pretty cool videos about polyamory! Hoping to bring this series back to life soon, but in the meantime check out the first few we made and for the love of all that is holy do not read the comments.

Also: drop me a note in my inbox if you have suggestions for video topics or questions you’d want answered!

Queering Myself

Source Website: From Monogamy to Something More. . .

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

I have been struggling a little with the following lately:

I look so damn straight.

I can't (and definitely don't!!) want to change my primary relationship. But that makes me look straight.

I like my feminine gender expression, and some of the traditional things that go with that: make-up, long hair, etc. That makes me look straight, too.

How do I tell other hot queer chicks that I am "one of them"??

My latest DA post went live: The Cons I've Experienced in My Open Relationship.

This one was tough for me to write at the time, and is still not my favorite to read. It's just kind of downer for me to reflect on some of the major difficulties I have had! Haha :) But I suppose it's also a great thing to see that I/we got through them.

Dating Monogamous People

Source Website: From Monogamy to Something More. . .

How would you usually deal or cope with the idea if J was interested in seeing someone that was single and not familiar with the open concept, but wanting to know more? I'm having a difficult time relaxing about it, so I thought maybe hearing someone else's perspective on it might help a bit.

I think this is a pretty common sentiment. Many people I know in open relationships, myself included, feel threatened thinking about their partner dating someone who may be monogamously oriented and not respect my relationship with J.

An Open Letter to the Notification Fairy

Dear Notification Fairy,

I know what you’re trying to do, but I have to let you know that it’s not working. I understand that it seemed like a good idea at the time, adding the “Seen” timestamp to Facebook messages or the “Read” receipts to iMessage; thankfully Apple gives us the option to turn at least that off. You were obviously an early adopter of Blackberry technology and just thought that the notifications of BBM were too good not to share with the rest of us.

People Are Strange, When You’re a Stranger

There are millions of us out there; people who’ve loved another but now walk the earth apart. It’s pretty standard when it comes to breaking up. Either gradually or in an instant, that person you were once so close with, no more has a place in your life.

Why can't we be friends?

Source Website: Polycule

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

I think I discovered yet another reason I prefer polyamory.

It is a scientific fact (I asked science) that friendships last longer and are more plentiful & successful than romantic relationships. My theory (I didn’t consult science) is that it’s because there’s less pressure on friendships for accomplishing certain things in our lives and because there’s no clearly-defined “end goal” or measure of success in a friendship (as opposed to romance where you “win” by being married until you die).

Dating in a poly relationship can sometimes be a little tricky to navigate, not just because of the boundaries and agreements of your own relationship but those of the people  you intend to date.  Non-monogamy comes in all shapes and sizes, and you can have great chemistry with someone, but if they’re style doesn’t compliment yours there may be some disappointment.
