Focus on boundaries and agreements for happier, more secure relationships.
Or at least I thought I was. I am obsessed with rom-coms and Disney movies.
I cry at every wedding. I craved the security of a relationship so badly because of what I thought it implied — that I was worthy, valuable, and loved. And when I am dating outside of the traditional, monogamous landscape, I truly feel like I am those things. Recently, I made the decision to try dating polyamorously and see if the lifestyle suits me. I mean, what do I even say on dates?
2. do ask yourself if you can handle polyamory
What are the rules and boundaries I need to establish for myself to honor my emotions and the emotions of others in this process? I reached out to some very amazing nonmonogamous and polyamorous folks for the answers. I love that so many polyamorous people emphasize seeking informed consent. The poly community tends to look at relationships as intentional endeavors, not experiences you fall into.
It sets you up to fail and makes you apt to use someone else for sexual and emotional labor. Friends have expressed concern that I am opening myself up to experiences of neglect and abuse. But I can imagine wanting my personal space to remain my own, so this rule makes total sense.
Setting a monthly testing date immediately dismantles that. Some polyamorous folks even go with their partners to get tested. Caring about your own health and the health of others is thoughtful, loving, and certainly the cleanest thing you can do.
Before considering polyamory, I had no idea how much intention, boundary-setting, and compassion it involved. Dating Tips.
