Polyamory dating stories
We were both still active online, seeing other people.When Howard told me about his conference, I said, “I should be honest, too.“It’s easier if we both want to spend time with old lovers.”But my ex-boyfriend couldn’t deal with Howard, so I ended my attempt at ex-lover polyamory.Howard called polyamory “consensual non-monogamy,” meaning you could have sex with other people so long as all parties agreed. And if we couldn’t agree to the terms, would Howard mope around the house moaning that I never let him do anything fun?I couldn’t see even cultural Jewishness coexisting with polyamory.
He had told me he wanted a primary partner, someone to live with and plan a future together. We would be maintaining a partnership so that we could give the best of ourselves to other people.
“I want to fall in love still sleep around.”Over time I returned to “but,” seeing only a linguistic conceit.
When I first met Howard, I had wanted to be open to a different kind of life than when I was married, one that wasn’t necessarily monogamous. Maybe I was limiting myself by being so traditional.
And I knew that when you find love, you jump in, almost involuntarily.
You don’t sit on the edge negotiating how to keep your options open.
