It’s over...

2020.09.20 17:57 kfloriann6 It’s over...

I broke up with my partner and moved out. It was my first polyamorous experience and it was awful.
When my ex first told me he wanted to see someone new, I was under the impression that when he told me, he was going to meet her for the first time. He mentioned they’d been talking for two weeks and he was finally planning to meet her that Friday (he told me on a Monday). This all took place in May. I took everything pretty well and was doing my best to be supportive.
In the span of two weeks, I felt like things were moving fast and I felt extremely left out. At this point, I made my self part of a lot of groups, bought books, downloaded podcasts, you name it. Prior to him wanting to see someone else, we were in an open relationship. That’s what was established when we began dating. However, we all know open and poly are different.
Boundaries were set for our open relationship, and when he brought this up, I set up a few boundaries as well. I told him I would need time before I met my meta, but things moved so fast, that I frankly had no desire to meet her.
I felt like there was no compersion towards me, but I was being very supportive of them. Until I felt neglected. The following week he told me he loved her, went on a trip with her and her family, and met her parents. That seemed liked A LOT for me to take in, in less than a month. I was mind blown 🤯
This new partner of his also has an existing partner, which he said, he had no feelings for. Later on, he tells me he has pursued a triad with them. I was so confused being that he didn’t have feelings for the other girl to begin with.
I’ve recently met my meta (ex meta) after months of putting off due to everything that was happening. I found out he had been seeing her since late March and didn’t tell me about it until mid May. Also found out he emotionally/physically cheated on me with them both, multiple times, before telling me about it. A boundary was that he couldn’t bring people to our space and absolutely not have sex, and what did he do? JUST THAT.
It absolutely broke me, but I laughed hysterically. I’d realized that while I was feeling crazy for making assumptions, I had been right about my gut feelings the entire time. I don’t blame the girls, but I do feel anger towards them as well.
I broke up with him and left and he told me he didn’t want to lose me from his life. He wanted to rebuild our friendship and perhaps pursue us in the future again. I don’t think it’s something I can ever do. What hurts me the most is having to give up completely on the dog we got together.
There so much more to the story, but my hands and fingers are hurting... lol :/

2020.09.20 17:54 boodlescoots Why are you ENM and what's your "flavor"?

Hi all, sorry if this has been posted before, I was looking for it but couldn't find it.
tldr: I'm looking for representation in all ENM experiences because I don't see it in my current life! I want to understand motivations and outcomes. :)
I'm thinking of broaching the subject of ENM with my monogamous partner of 2.5 years. he knows I've been in open relationships before and we've VERY casually talked about the idea of swinging as something future-us might do (he said he wasn't interested but because I said I was, he'd be open to consider it more).
Before, I'd never really been able to explain WHY i preferred non-monogamy, I just said things like "that's not how I'm wired" which feels true but isn't the most helpful for explaining to a traditionally monogamous person why I want to open up the relationship.
For me, I think it has something to do with thrill of the flirt "chase" (i LOVE flirting), that moment of sexual tension when you're pretty sure the other person is thinking the same thing but both parties are hesitant to make a move, and the feeling of being desired by many/being able to choose if a given relationship moves forward without feeling guilty because of monogamous limitations. As well as a plain ole "life is long as fuck! How is anyone supposed to fuck only one person for the next couple decades till we die?? YOLO, so lets have *responsible* fun!"
In the past I thought I was poly, but was really just monogamish. Given that now I don't particularly want deep romantic relationships, but just flings, fwb, and the rush that dating gives, I'm not sure what the best sort of "style" of ENM is for me. I am leaning towards swinging, but I wonder what that looks like outside of swinging parties shown on TV... Anyway, this post is less about me, and more about hearing your experiences to understand how it can fit into my life (and others who stumble across this later)

2020.09.20 17:29 threegousha Being Poly and Ace

Remove if not allowed but I needed to vent somewhere (flaired for potential aphobia triggers)
I've been ace for as long as I can remember. There were times I wondered, but that ultimately was because of pressure to have and enjoy sex. I'm very much so asexual, but poly (romantic?) I believe. And I have one current partner, but it's long-distance and there will never be any "settling down" or anything like that because he is married and also poly. He's a wonderful, wonderful person and I love him to death, but the life events that happen with relationships aren't in the cards.
So I tried looking around in poly circles to find someone or a couple (not unicorn hunters) to be able to eventually pursue that with, but most 20 something poly people I've met are mostly kinksters. And say they would "love to have an ace partner", but that's just to be the emotional sponge and not be taken serious in the relationship. That's been my experience so far, anyway. If you're not contributing physically to the relationship, it feels like you get tossed aside and your feelings aren't taken as serious. Just gets frustrating sometimes my dudes. Thanks for letting me vent.

Y'all girls are like a bunch of scapyard dogs and it's a shame that after I sophisticated myself. Bettered myself, you all regressed. G I'm sure you were setting b up I saw her lookalikes or whatevs. B stopped caring because I never had any sexual fantasy of her to go on. But even the one with you g is lame for certain reasons. B could be my partner in fact if they stepped up that game. Bc in fact I'm tired of tricks dumb women and bullshit. Also you set up another woman it seems I noticed that this seems to be your tactic. This is very lame and dissapointing, I am poly and this behaviour is complete anti poly and anti-cohesion. B does have a place in my heart g you just got to live with that. The bullshits just too much stop the games. Serious either of you could come sweep my off my feet that would be a great show of love. You just gotta be brave, anyway it is screwed with b the relationship just seemed conjured the timing of her. But also g never did act with class back in the day. idk girls it's lame to say but I still have faith that you have some plan up your sleeve

2020.09.20 13:53 Tecnicalexperience6 Breakup in Need of Suggestions

Hello. This is a polyamory relationship. I'm twenty four and just ended a relationship with someone who I spent a little over four years together with. We had some key things that we weren't compatible over that weren't ever able to change. So it was time to step away. We might be friends in the future, but for now I asked them to take a break from talking to me for a few months or more so that I can adjust to the new normal. They plan on being single a while if the circumstances for that are present in their life (if their other partner ends things). But a small part of me hopes that someday in a year or two we can revisit as better people who have moved on from our past and have pleasantries. Maybe consider dating if the people we have become down that timeline are still compatible. One reason for ending things is that I could not see myself continuing with them remaining with their partner because of how much that relationship with her limited ours.
We were together during the first years of my adulthood, and they were my best friend throughout that time. They taught me about life, helped me build my furniture for my first place/and fixing things when they broke. It feels like I'm losing a huge part of my life. I know that I might be feeling really terrible this next few months from the change, and it could take me years to move on. I've never been so deeply attraced to anyone. The longer you love a person and invest, the more deeply you appreciate their beauty.
This has put me in a position where I'm feeling worried about wasting my time with other potential partners, and being pickier about who is and is not worth my time. Perhaps I'm more worried about guarding my financial assets. Suddenly I'm vigilantly concerned over what and who I invest in. Whereas while with my former partner I was open to dating all kinds of people and giving them a lot of leeway to see where things go. As I did the important/fun things in my life with the support of/together with my now ex partner.
Although I am fully independent and regularly do things with friends. My now ex and I didn't live together because I wanted to live on my own and his living situation couldn't accommodate me in the ways I needed. I'm still expecting to be lonely at these times. I'm also afraid a little bit of losing a helping hand. I have some friends who I can ask for help. But I am a little irrationally anxious that I could also lose my friends suddenly. Even though I know it's unlikely. I am a good friend and a good person.
The only thing I seem to have trouble with is being tidy at home and at times living alone puts one in a state of isolation in winter. Covid has added a layer to this with limiting de-stressor activities such as going out to bars and dancing/travel.
All of this seems a lot easier as I have reached a certain level of maturity. Particularly now where I am in a good position with my job where I have time to use my potential outside work, and don't need to worry about unemployment/bills with my skill set and experience to offer. I did years of planning for emergency fixes into adulthood to help myself feel secure.
I hope to do better get more space and maybe a domestic pet. This may help me feel more secure with being single and confident in what I can accomplish. I have a good healthy support network with family and friends who I've made just in the past year. As well as friends who I've known for years but we all live far apart as adults.
I've reached an age and stage in life now where I am wanting to have a entangled life with someone. Before I was pretty firm on just living seperately from my now ex partner and keeping all my career options open/not being tied down for any reason. Even if my future partner and I are only just dating and not looking to marry or be together for ever, I want to be able to date someone for a long term and have the experience of living with that person/ maybe sharing some things with them like selected furniture etc.. Of course I'd only consider that after a few years of dating as I approach my thirties. Life may take me on other paths or I could be single until then too. One challenge of dating Poly is that it's hard to find people who are experienced with it, and versed about the ethical parts. Then some people have hierarchy. I dated a few people but they all wanted a "secondary". Sometimes those people in primary relationships already put a strain on me to remind me I am lesser. That was hard. It makes me discouraged to date.
Other than talking through this with my therapist,
I'm just hoping for some empathy here or advice. What can I expect and when do things get better? Any tips for moving on?

2020.09.20 11:11 escomsicstuelb Curious about poly

Soooo here's my situation...
I (m) have been in a relationship with my gf for a couple years now, and some time ago we agreed on the possibility of a threesome (mff), and we've been actively searching for a partner for said purpose, but due to several reasons haven't really fulfilled it. So now we live together and have a baby, we're a happy family but haven't discarded the idea of the threesome and are still looking for a partner. The thing is, a few months ago she started showing some interest in poly, not directly discussing it with me, but she's been watching a lot of videos about poly couples and even jokingly made comments about it. I really wouldn't mind being in a poly relationship as long as it is with someone we love and loves us as long as we love each other, but I'm not sure if I should interpret her actions as wanting something like that, or how could I bring up the topic. I'm really curious about it and definitely would give it a try, but don't know if she wants that too or how to talk about it without her misinterpreting it or thinking I'm not satisfied with our current relationship soooo... any advice I could get on this please? Thanks everyone!

2020.09.20 09:13 kimba65 Conflicting Information?

This has been bugging me, and I need some advice.
I have a relatively new partner (A) of a few months, and I recently met my meta, their nesting/primary partner (B). I knew some things about B and their relationship from various casual conversations (how long they’d been together, their style of poly, etc) with A. We met and it went well. Everything seemed above board.
However the more I talk to B (we share interests we’ve been messaging about just us) the more I’m starting to get the feeling that either A wasn’t being truthful to me, or they are very much not on the same page about their relationship.
I don’t want to give specifics, but a similar example would be something like A told me they never wanted to get married and then B told me about their future wedding plans.
I know it’s not my place to get in between their relationship, and I certainly don’t want to ‘get anyone in trouble’. But would it be over-stepping to ask A about the inconsistencies? Something like “hey you told me this, right? How come B told me that?”
I don’t want to be nosy or get too involved in their business. I just really value honesty in my own relationships, and I’m not sure I’d want to continue to see someone who doesn’t share that value.
What do you think?

2020.09.20 08:47 NerdyGothGirlPlus 34 [F4F] Vancouver/Online looking for feels and flirts!

Hello!
My partner and I are moving into poly land (not our first time at the rodeo, no need to fret) and while they’ll be doing their own thing, I’m here doing mine!
I’m in my mid thirties, rather curvy, pretty tall at 5’9” and have black hair with straight bangs. I love to tell good stories, and have a lot to tell be it hilariously bad dating adventures, fun stories of foreign travel or highly embarrassing childhood experiences!
I also enjoy going for walks, tinkering with electronics to make cool gaming things, reading about the history of languages on Wikipedia, and daydreaming about the tattoos I want but never seem to get.
For the kink world, while I switch, I naturally fit being a submissive better. But can I be a service top? You betcha!
I’m looking for a long term dating partneFWB - while love is always on the cards it’s not the aim, so I might not be the woman for you if you’re looking to settle down!
Anyway, I’d love to hear from you! Online is great, local is better as we could eventually meet :)

2020.09.20 07:11 Dels1nRowe 40[M4F] Seattle: We ride together, we die together

Looking for a forever life partner where "we ride together, we die together. " If you know the movie that line comes from, bravo! I am confident but not cocky. Not desperate but need my wing woman who will be the co-pilot of my life. And she will be damn proud that I am the co-pilot of hers. I have been through a lot in life and came out with an attitude that this won't get me down. No fucking way! No drama, no baggage. You'll feel loved and safe with me. I got your back. You are strong. You are independent. You reciprocate love just as much as you want it. You live an intentional life. I love myself and now on a quest to find my twin flame, my soul mate or whatever else word they use these days. Only when you love yourself can you love another. Took me years of meditation, kindness and spirituality to get where I am. Not religious or conservations. Liberal and open-minded. Respect all as equals. Support women rights. I am assertive and not afraid to call out BS. I will not lower my standards because my dick is getting hard. That's weakness. I want to find the one where she is it for me. Yes, that means monogamous so no poly, hookup, causal or fuck buddy. She is my breath and I am hers. I admire her beauty in every waking moment and she can't wait to kiss me every morning. I am empty without her and she is empty without me. We love, we kiss, we foreplay, we travel, we fucking enjoy life and sometimes, we disagree, we get annoyed, even upset but we know one thing "we ride together, we die together." There is no walking away. It takes a lot for me to walk away. I live with positivity. I live with purpose. I live with courage, and with strength.
I am Indian, 5'8, brown and slender with a barely noticeable gut. Yeah, don't have a six pack. I eat healthy and stay active. I prefer thicc, curvy or slender but not plus size. Senior engineer and a great career. I have done dating, relationships and even marriage. I am not looking to get married again. I don't see love in co-mingling furniture or finances. I want us to have a life together without a piece of paper. Love transcends a superficial paper. Love even transcends time and is beyond a dimension that we will barely grasp in this lifetime. I want us to go on long walks, enjoy a movie together, go on a hike as I hold you in my arms and travel the world. I want to feel alive knowing I am it for you and that messaging me makes your day. So go ahead, I am waiting.

Me and my wife were in a poly relationship for almost a year when things began to degrade with our partner (long story short, our partner decided equal wasn't enough and wanted more). Since the split has just been the two of us and we are ready to get back out there again. I started a new career and job and met someone there I've become interested in, my wife encourages me to talk to people but I am nervous. How do I ask her to have dinner with me/us?

2020.09.20 07:04 TinyTina53 "Unicorn" vs first partner: being fair to both.

In a triad, we talk alot about ways to protect a unicorn from getting hurt. Things like not using veto powecouples privilege and such.
Where does a first partners feelings fit in? What if the first partner is uncomfortable and feeling neglected? They still want the poly relationship but they need things to slow down or for their partner to more adequately address their needs. Etc.
What is reasonable, and what is not?

2020.09.20 05:51 lttlfrk (28F) Historically heteroromantic, finally accepting my bisexuality and want to change that, but terrified to engage with women...help?

You know the story, I grew up in a conservative cult-like religion where homosexuality was the most unacceptable sin. While I've managed to leave and pursue a more authentic life, the learned shame from my childhood is still a heavy burden and one that's kept me from connecting with women the way I want to. (Note, it's more social shame / family shame than "God" shame, while I was raised in religion I've never believed in it.) To complicate things, I'm poly and in a relationship with my 36M partner who is also bi. Luckily we live in a beautiful community where there are a lot of like minded people, and I often match with potential partners on dating apps.
The problem is that no matter how much I want to interact, I can't get past that initial message exchange. I'm not sure if it's my fear of not knowing how to date women, or my lack of experience, or that damn shame monster inside of me, but I am terrified and it's enough to shut down any sort of conversation I happen to strike up... Not sure what advice I'm looking for, but open to hearing all of it. Especially if you've got some similar experiences you were able to work through. TIA!

2020.09.20 04:54 PM_grool_pictures 37 [M4F] #Seattle #Washington - looking for poly partner

I am a married, poly, 37 year old Australian caucasian cis-male who’s looking for a poly partner. Around 6’ and 165lb, I live on the Eastside of Seattle, am DDF, and have experience with BDSM (dominance).
I do not smoke or drink, though I have dabbled with marijuana on a scarce occasion. I enjoy hiking, technology, and am of an average build and fitness. Cooking is something I like to do here and there, but I am no master of the art.
What can I be for you?
What I would like from you:
The ability to communicate in all honesty with me. I'd like for us to build a strong foundation of trust. If something is bothering you, do not hesitate to inform me. I cannot read your mind, and I realize that the same can be said of you. Let's keep the lines of communication clear and open.
Maturity and understanding. Willingness to learn as well as work with me, and exert an equal amount of time and effort towards the relationship. It takes two to tango.
Hopefully you've a good sense of humor, too! I certainly can be demented within my own.
From a non-kink perspective I would potentially like to do a variety of activities with you. Should Covid ever pass I’d like to go to events, cuddle, watch movies, go on dates, and discuss topics that come to mind. All that we could do and explore is not simply limited to this list, but it is intended to give you a concise idea as to what I'm seeking from this. Perhaps we will discover new and wondrous things, or stick to what is comfortable and gratifying. I'm fairly open minded.
I’d like you to be a ethnically non-monogamous / poly cis-female local to Seattle, mature minded, slim to average build, and preferably between 20-35 (those outside this range are still encouraged to message me however). Bonus points if you’re into submission.
That about concludes it. I would be happy to offer further information through a more private chat, so please message me if you are interested or simply wish to make an inquiry. I'm happy to take our status as slow or as quickly as you like, provided it does not clash with my own stance.

2020.09.20 00:15 krisintheskywithyou Struggles

So my wife and I have always had difficulties in the poly community. We are really only interested in females, but prefer the concept of starting the relationship as a triad, then seeing how it goes beyond that, since if it doesn't work between us all we aren't interested in pursuing it. In our small town conservative area, the only people we seem to connect with are other poly couples, but they always want to only do full swaps, which is of zero interest to us, my wife honestly prefers women, and I as a male am straight. Basically asking for advice in how to connect or find other women without seeming rude about not having other men in our relationship, we don't mind if our new partner has other partners at all, just no men involved relationship wise with us in the triad setting:) wanting long term relationships, not just one night stands. Any advice would be appreciated 🙏.

2020.09.19 23:34 polyanxious How to find women to date, as a poly woman

In my teens and early 20s I dated women almost exclusively, while in poly relationships. I then entered a monogamous relationship. We broke up, and I've been able to explore new connections for the past five years. I've had no trouble getting attention from cis men, but what I'm really missing is a partner who defines as a woman.
Issue is, I have NO interest from women. I consider myself engaging, and average to cute. I'm witty, if not snarky, with a full life. I send first messages always, I've flirted like mad at meets (pre-lockdown) and while I have a male partner we date separately and have no intention of finding 'a third'. He would never be involved and my profile on OKC makes that clear.
Anyone got any tips for getting some female attention? Or any women who like women have tips on what makes them think, "hell yeah!" I feel like an awkward teenager.

2020.09.19 22:16 madampc Primary may have met the mother for his future children. Do I fit in?

Hi. I'm not sure if this has already been asked but here we go. My primary partner and I have been together for almost 8 years. I know I know we're not supposed to be using primary titles but whatever. When we first started dating he told me that eventually he'd like to have kids. I don't. I was "fixed" years ago. I like being the cool Aunt tho.
He's nearing 40. About a year and a half ago I urge him to start looking. He wanted to find someone who is poly and agreeable to her and I being co-primaries. Ideally he wanted me in a detached unit on the same property. Alternatively, next door like in a duplex. I need my own space. We've never lived together.
He started dating someone in March (2020) and it looks like she is a serious candidate. She herself just turned 40 and she wants a child by the next year (2021). As of last month, she decided that he was the one for her. He hasn't committed to her being the mother to his future children, yet. However, he's thinking that she is probably the best chance he's got. Currently he does not live her but likes her a lot.
About 2 weeks ago she recently told him that she wanted to be the focus of his love. That she wanted to be important. That she feels threatened by me. She is not willing to share. She does not oppose me coming over for dinner every now and then when they have children. Obviously they would be nesting partners because of the children.
As far as I'm concerned his future kids come first. Then his love life. I like being the cool aunt. I look forward to taking them to the movies. I look forward to teaching them about gardening. I look forward to going camping with them. I look forward to helping them with their homework. I want to be involved in their lives. I just don't want kids myself.
My boyfriend is determined to make it work. He does not want to lose me. I know he loves me deeply. That will never change no matter what. I know that. He wants to have the co-primary thing work out. I understand that his availability will be limited. I don't want it to be a situation where the only time I see him is when I come over for family dinner.
He and I have talked about our needs at great length. I have asked him to set up a time for me and her to meet in person. from everything he has told me on her expectations I honestly do not feel that we will come to any sort of agreement or compromise. If she and I can come to some sort of agreement or plan that addresses both of our needs then that would be awesome. However from everything he has told me about her expectations an agreement would not be the outcome.
I can choose whom I have my relationships with. I cannot decide who my boyfriend has relationships with. I love him dearly. I truly do want him to achieve his goal of having children at some point in the future.
Am I fighting a losing battle? Should I just accept taking on a secondary role and see him maybe once a month? Should I just step aside altogether?
Do any of you have any life experiences with something like this? Did it work out or not? I could use some sage advice.

2020.09.19 19:40 ledaswannn New to Poly! I am female, pansexual, and my girlfriend is bisexual! She wants to start seeing men. I need ADVICE

Pls help me. I’m truly an anxious wreck because I feel ignorant and inexperienced with polyamory. My last relationship was absolutely horrible and she cheated on me three times.. so unfortunately my only experience with my partner seeing someone else was non consensual. My girlfriend and I have been dating for about 9 months and I’m her first real relationship with a woman. She’s primarily dated men her whole life and the last relationship was with a man who let her see as many females as she’d like. So her experience with poly is more advanced than me. When the two of us began talking she was seeing another guy and I was ok at first but she broke it off when we became official bc I was uncomfortable with it. In my past I have had threesomes before and thought we could try this but as soon as the guy came over I immediately got sick to my stomach and uncomfortable. I’m really trying to work on being open and work on my own confidence so I can help her explore herself. I love her so fucking much. Pls help open my eyes to see what I’m missing, to help me accept and grow to this.

So my partners and I play dnd and one of their characters died. Bad right?

(refering to me) and I just... I mean they not wrong but I dont think thats how you should react to your one of your partners death.

2020.09.19 18:59 sweetpeach7707 Adding someone to a poly relationship?

Cross post from relationship_advice
So I (18f) and my partner (18m) are poly. We don't share partners unless the person wants to. There's this guy (23-26m) I have been crushing on for a bit. He's flirted with me before and I love talking to him so much. But it's brief as I only see him at his work, a plant nursery. How should I approach giving him my number? I don't want him to be scared by the fact I'm poly and young than him. I have always looked older (people thought I was 16 when I was 10. Neighbors thought I was 23.) I was thinking of just saying "hey Name, so I wanted to give you my number but I wanted to let you know I am poly. I understand if you aren't comfortable with that, but if you're willing to consider text me!" And then tell him my age over text? I just want to make sure I'm doing this right as this would be my first romantic interest im adding.
