This is the concept that, to feel secure in our relationships, and to have a healthy relationship, we need to feel that we come first to our romantic partner.  It includes the idea that our partner will always and invariably be there for us in a personal crisis, to give exactly the kind of support we feel we need at the time.

There Can Be Only One: Poly Myths 1

There is a pervasive idea that poly living breaks down the emotional bonds between pre-existing couples, as they are distracted by the new love interests in their lives.  There's a corresponding idea that poly makes it difficult for people who are single to build the 'exclusive couple bond' with their new poly partner that we all, apparently, need desperately in our lives.

What are Poly Myths?

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

I've been meaning to write a series of posts about poly myths for a long time, but just haven't got around to it.  However, recently I read a blog post that condensed the majority of negative poly myths into a few brief sentences, quoted as expert opinion.  Needless to say, this expert was clearly not an expert on poly relationships.  Cue much steaming at the ears and a lengthy response from me in the comments section.  I'm reposting those thoughts here, in an expanded and more comprehensive form, as a series of posts subtitled 'Poly Myths'.
