Le Cœur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît point

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 12:00:05 +0000

Recently, I was asked (among other people) to answer were some pros and cons were of an open relationship. This sent me into sheer, blank system error. Being poly was not a choice for me. Once I was exposed to the idea that people could even have multiple relationships, it just… clicked as “right” somehow. […]

Know Thyself

Last week, we talked about the fact that for polyamory to be successful, self-knowledge is crucial. Of course, that was something of a mis-statement. To have successful relationships in general, self-knowledge is crucial. I’d say one of the biggest problems in dealing with self-knowledge is the simple fact that we are presented with A Good […]

Three Reasons Why Self-Knowledge is Crucial in Polyamory*

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 14:00:32 +0000

While bad boundaries are certainly the worst issue I see when we’re looking at polyamorous issues, I think poor self-knowledge is also another serious roadblock when you’re trying to have great polyamorous relationships. My blog, and several others, tend to hammer away at things like being honest about your feelings, learning to communicate well and […]

Your Partner Doesn’t Get to Read Your Texts

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 13:00:52 +0000

My husband and I started off in an open relationship, after having both had several years of being poly. After a while, we drifted towards monogamous assumptions and have been basically mono for more than a decade. We’ve kept saying we’re “open to being open” if the right situation/person/people came up, but haven’t had much […]

Go Vote

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 11:51:21 +0000

If you’re a US Citizen and haven’t cast an early ballot, it’s time to vote. (If you have, thanks. If you’re a poll worker, even more thanks) Where to vote? I do this every four years, and I know you may be tired of it, but I’m going to be stepping it up, ’cause it’s […]

You Already Know the Answer

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 13:00:28 +0000

I need your opinion. Around 4 months ago I met my partner. After our second date he asked me if I’m ok with him dating others as well – I said it’s not a problem, but I won’t do it and prefer a monogamous relationship in the future. He is always dating others which in […]

The Five Unbreakable Rules That Make Polyamory Work

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 12:00:15 +0000

Okay, mah poly children. Grandmama Java (my granddaughter was born Monday) wants to roll it back to some basics for making polyamory work. If you practice these five rules, you will have great relationships, and you will find that things work better for you. One caveat. It will not fix someone else breaking these rules, […]

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 […]
