By Any Other Name

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 12:05:50 +0000

I’m not naming names here because this blog is not meant to be political. However, I saw in a news source an aspiring politician say a thing. To my eyes, the thing had clearly to do with consent, not sex. When seeing some commentary on it, the newscaster brought up another moment of someone else […]

Maybe You’re an Asshole

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 12:00:36 +0000

Once again, I’ve gotten a flood of letters that seem to be on a specific theme. Been married awhile, guy announces he’s poly, then… Well, emotionally and/or physically disappears. Doesn’t hang out with the kids, insists the wife entertains other loves because That’s How Poly is Done (reality check: it isn’t), starts screwing up the […]

Teenagers Who Are Exploring Polyamory

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 13:00:07 +0000

I’ve been getting some messages on social media from teenagers with questions about polyamory. No, no, don’t freak out. I’m not going to tell you that you’re too young to be thinking about it. That would be a bit rich coming from me. I read Stranger in a Strange Land at fourteen, and that was […]

It’s Not Up to You

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 13:00:22 +0000

Hello, my husband and I have been with our partner only about three months she’s 21 and lives with family. Her family is now making her choose whether or not to be with us or them. We love her and want her to be with us, but I don’t feel right asking her to choose […]

Why Do You Want Polyamory?

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 13:00:06 +0000

Hello Goddess of Java, I’m really seeking to broaden my thinking and be realistic about relationships. I’m considering polyamory but am concerned that I won’t be able to handle it once I’m in. I’m learning most people struggle with monogamy. So far monogamy works for me but the guys I date keep wanting to swing […]

Opportunity to Start Polyamory Right

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 13:00:26 +0000

I have recently found myself in an interesting but confusing position. I’ve been married for 10 years to a wonderful partner whom I genuinely love. Recently, I have met a person who I have become quite connected with and have been having quite strong feelings towards, not just sexually, but emotionally and intellectually. When I […]

We’re Bad at Predicting Feelings

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 13:00:52 +0000

In many ways I feel bad asking for this advice because I think deep down, I know what I should be doing (not to mention I feel as though I am still in the phase of rehashing and overanalysing everything, which probably isn’t healthy) – but hey, here’s a rehashed and overanalysed summary of my […]

Some People’s Children

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 11:00:58 +0000

My partner and I are poly and I have a two-year relationship with my boyfriend, who is married. My partner is just starting to date my boyfriend’s wife. We all get along famously, but I have a thorny issue: their kids. My boyfriend and his wife are indifferent parents to their two ‘tween boys. He […]

Betrayal, Comfort Zones and Healing

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 13:00:05 +0000

Hello. So I think I should start out with some back story. In my last relationship, I had two male partners. One I lived with, and one long distance. Me and my primary (actual boyfriend) were together and had an “open relationship” with each other. I met my other partner online not long after my […]

Your Mission, should you choose to accept it

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 22:10:00 +0000

My fellow polyamorous people, Things are rough and horrible right now, as you know from reading the news. I’m not going to give a commentary on it for a lot of reasons. But I want to ask a favor of all of you. Tomorrow, sometime during the day, could you please do something kind, useful […]
