    Relationship Anarchy

    It's been awhile since I've inhabited the forum. Ive been sorting myself out so to speak. Quick synopsis: I was part of a very short term triad with a couple (philosopher and his now ex-wife) turned vee, which quickly dissolved (I won't bore you with the details.) a year after I left, their...

    Effect of divorce

    Brief backstory: In 2011, I joined a couple that seemed tight, but ultimately was not. In all fairness, they did not understand the significance of their own issues. The wife, Lorelei, was a walking, talking apparition of cognitive distortions. She presented well on the surface. Put on a good...

    Need Your Insight

    Brief back story: 2 1/2 years ago, I joined a couple. My initial relationship was with the wife (L) - she and I had known each other since we were children. The husband (E) and I quickly fell for each other. All was good until L did a 180 (after promoting that we all have our own marriage...

    Trying to Wrap my Head Around This:

    Backstory: I am 2.5 months out of a vee triad with a couple ~ the woman was a childhood friend (although we'd been in and out of touch through our adult years), and her husband. The triad lasted about 10 months; started devolving at about 2 months due to massive insecurity and self-esteem...

    Need some perspective

    Need some perspective from people who understand. Sorry this is likely to be rather lengthy. Back story: I was part of a long term MFF triad that only ended upon the death of our spouse. She and I are still in close contact, but felt like we needed to explore the world on our own after his...

    Emotional Triad

    I am now the second (a female) in what I would define as an emotional triad with a married hetero couple. We began as a full triad, but it has not worked thus far. Back story: Our triad did not come about because any of us were seeking the lifestyle. I'm a long time friend of the wife. She...
