    Thanks for posting. It's nice to see another special needs mom here. <3 Been low energy but I'll for sure be adding here. as far as the unicorn thing, the guy I'm seeing is seeing someone (primary) and I'm not bisexual so that's a no go. Although, I don't think it makes sense to say I'm...

    Do you know your love language and does it matter?

    This is SO me! Lol, seriously. The anxiety is too much. And I don't have time to be overthinking. If I didn't like him so much I would end it on account of not having time to be put in a position where I'm overthinking. I guess you're right and I'll spit it out and see where it goes. Thank you...

    Do you know your love language and does it matter?

    Thank you for the clarification :) I used to be active on another forum some years ago and the new people always got roasted for starting 'common' threads. That always bothered me and I would post a reply and assure them it's okay. Thing is, some people would get annoyed as if it was "their"...

    Do you know your love language and does it matter?

    Thanks :) For me physical is high too but without that QT, it's starting to feel cheap. :/ How have you (or others reading) resolved conflicts with not getting the most desired feedback? Did you just end the relationships or devalue its relevance to your inner life? (Hope that made sense).

    Do you know your love language and does it matter?

    This is my current dilemma. I'm dating others but seeing one person who doesn't give much QT for me at all and I'm struggling with feeling like some person on the side, like a fuck buddy pretty much. Not sure if I'm being jerked around because I've communicated my lack of interest in words as a...

    Do you know your love language and does it matter?

    Thank you for the resources! However may I just say, I'm noticing a theme here. No matter what I post, a thread has already been made (and while that resource is most appreciated, if I only looked up old threads, I wouldn't be very active here would I ). So my point is, do you want people who...

    super new to the forum but I think I might give this idea a go. I've never used the blog features on forums before. I'm a super private person irl but as of the recent, I'm starting to let that go a bit. Primarily, I posted a dating profile with my photos admitting that I was poly and looking...

    Online dating blows

    I think that every time I've written a profile I did better than the last time. This time, I have a fair amount of messages but my box is not getting slammed. and I get the token gross messages, but I just delete asap. I think the reason my profile is working best this time is because I was...

    Do you know your love language and does it matter?

    So I ask this because in my experience I find it totally matters! I find when I don't get the feedback (those that are high on my love lang) I feel very forgotten and as if the other person is not interested, even if they are! I was curious what other people's thoughts are about love language...

    Being Poly and Choosing Marriage

    Thank you!! I'm always up for new documentaries :) yeah, the person I dated who was a lawyer taught me so much. He advocated for men who were abused in relationships and when he first brought the concept up to me, I must confess, like most people, I had a hard time wrapping my head around the...

    Survival guide for dating a mono

    It was bad timing. Not that my sentiment is different. Sweeping generalizations can be irritating and that's how I read it (not rereading it at the moment but I could be wrong). Anyways, not looking for a confrontation so that's about it.

    Intro / New to Poly

    Thank you for the welcome! Nice to see another newbie :) I've experienced other forms of poly and it's not a big deal. Frankly, it's a take it or leave it (if I was in a primary relationship that was healthy and happy). If the other party is I don't care either. However, my current status is...

    New to poly and in DESPERATE need of outside perspective

    Actually, I've given it lots of thought and while I realize the age isn't a big deal, it's the issue here. He's at a different stage in life and doing what is typical of a 25 year old. I'm not upset but I did have to shake things up to get him to communicate more clearly. He knows that's a must...

    Being Poly and Choosing Marriage

    marriage is both practical and emotional. I think marriage for the most part is to legitimately ensure your partner is taken care of (insurance etc). I dated a lawyer for a long time and learned so much!! one being, same sex marriages which he defended, because can you imagine being with someone...

    Imagine your ideal relationships.

    my ideal relationship would be with a primary (mono like) relationship where both parties are not restricted in an emotional or sexual sense to experience other relationships, but with certain boundaries to maintain a primary unit of commitment (if that makes any sense). commitment to the...

    Why do you use the online name that you use?

    because conscious compassion is the antiseptic of fear.

    On the topic of going mono to poly.

    It sounds like she's in a pretty unhealthy situation. I would personally be wary that she is the type to just jump ship from relationship to relationship in hopes of finding something better. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. the only way to have amazing relationships is to be amazing and...

    Intro / New to Poly

    Thank you! I still have lots of conflicting thoughts and feelings but I think considering my history with relationships (and most of which being atypical or untraditional in nature) poly isn't a bad thing - I just don't know how or what would hypothetically work for me as of yet. I'm happy I...
