Non-Monogamy Challenge - Day 5

Day 5: How did your family react to you being non-monogamous?

Well, fairly well. At least my immediate family (see the stories from yesterday’s entry). As for my extended family, I’m not out to them yet, but it is the plan – as I mentioned, that’s something I’m planning to work on in therapy. 52 more words

Day 4: How do you feel about your non-monogamy?

Currently? Pretty awesome.

My only issue is my discomfort with not being out to folks and that to society I do have to come out because I have multiple partners and they can’t just accept it as another morally neutral relationship configuration like they often view monogamous ones. 15 more words

Day 3: What have been the best and worst experiences you’ve had coming out as non-monogamous?

I don’t really have a worst – the worst is probably just neutral and panned out well in the long run. 592 more words

Day 2: When did you first realize you were non-monogamous?

Non-Monogamy Challenge - Day 1

Day 1: What type of non-monogamous relationships do you have?

I choose polyamory because it works for me. I opt not to do hierarchical polyamory, because I feel that it devalues the connections I have – if, outside of my own constraints, relationships cannot develop naturally, be as they can be, then it does not feel good to me. 235 more words


For December

For December, I think I’m going to go back to an old writing prompt, from: http://polyhorde.tumblr.com/post/87423863646/30-day-non-monogamy-challenge.  I did this in February of last year and I’d really like to revisit it. 43 more words
