    Feeling Empty

    I've been feeling this way for a couple of weeks now, and then today I had a thought for the first time that made me sad. That my relationship with George isn't real, or not as real as it could be, or would be, if we weren't poly. It started with Luke. When we first met and started dating...

    Jealousy Issues / Dating Monos

    I'll keep this brief. I'm noticing that I struggle a lot with jealousy and general insecurity with my relationships with mono people. I assume this is because, with poly people, I know that other partners won't necessarily replace me. But with mono people, because choosing is sort of built into...

    Negligence or Boundary Pushing?

    Something strange happened last night, and it's prompted me to post this. Right away I can say that I didn't handle the situation as directly or maturely as I could have, though I still like to think I handled it with a certain amount of grace (maybe not lol). In that regard I know a reckoning...

    Breakups In Poly

    Quick question: Any advice on how to manage a breakup in a poly situation? I started seeing someone new. While it didn't last long, it was very intense, and then ended very abruptly with me being left pretty confused. My partner has been super supportive but typically I've dealt with breakups...

    Metamour Manipulation? Can't Tell...

    I've been with my bf, George, for 2 1/2 months now, officially, though we dated on and off for a year or so before making it a "thing". George has several other partners where the relationships take on more of a friends-with-benefits nature, and one other girlfriend, Gina, with whom he has been...

    Partner Going Away With Metamour - Prep?

    Hola, everyone. :p So (happily) this isn't an angsty post or anything. I'll just find myself in new territory starting tomorrow and wanted to get some advice, if possible, from those more experienced and wiser than me. So my SO and I are pretty new (officially a thing as of a month) though...

    Is This Jealousy, Or Something Else?

    Hi, everyone. You may remember me from two years ago when I attempted to have my first relationship with a poly person, only to be pulled into a really crappy V with a guy and his mono gf. Anyway, I tried to go back to mono relationships. I thought it was all just too hard. Being objectified by...

    Gaslit?

    I first joined this forum for support, and I'm so glad I did. I don't think my partner is who I thought they were. I am torn as to how to proceed. On a previous post of mine someone warned me about triangulation, which I was floored to read because I realized it was happening all the time...

    Surprise Jealousy

    Hello everyone. So as y'all know from my previous thread "Dazed and Confused," my partner is poly, his other partner is mono. We are in a V, he is the hinge. He hadn't met anyone he was serious about for the first year of their relationship and it's been a very rough transition for her. Until...

    Dazed and Confused

    Many months ago I made a friend who is part of the poly community. This opened up a whole world of possibilities for me because I'd only heard about it in the abstract - here were examples of people really making it work! He himself was in an open relationship, and after several months we...
