I just found out that Ms. Fisher's other BF (Pete) has just met another woman, and is now giving polyamory a try for himself. I mean, I think it's odd that he didn't consider himself a poly participant before, but never mind that. When I found out he was taking up another relationship, it felt like a weight lifting off of my shoulders. I don't think that his relationship with Ms Fisher will change because of it, so it's not like I'm now anticipating having Ms. Fisher to myself again, but then where does the relief feeling come from? Is it normal to feel more comfortable with a meta who isn't a terminus of the polycule?
