I didn't even know this term existed until a few weeks ago, but what are your opinions on polyamory?

In essence it involves having multiple partners (and/or falling in love with multiple people) at the same time. Can such a state ever be healthy or indeed possible? Would you ever take part in it or support it? Is it freeing and liberating or just downright slutty~

I am not sure I could ever divulge in it. I couldn't even face meeting a guy for drinks after he said he had an on-off boyfriend because it just felt wrong even then!

It is what it is x

Seriously though, I couldn't ever do it really but nothing against those who do, as long as the others involved are fully aware of the situation at least.

No.

If I loved more than one person, I'd pick one to go out with.

I thought this was the weekend plans thread at first laugh.gif

I agree with Andrew's post, as I would eventually choose one of them. It would just be messy having multiple partners in a serious relationship : /

I would definitely never go out with more than one person at the same time, but my emotions are so all over the place that there have been several times where I've had feelings for several people at the same time. Right now I've ended up on two dating websites and I'm waiting for replies from two people and if they both were to answer me, I have no idea right now which of them I would choose. I guess it would depend on the conversations.

I definitely see this becoming a norm within time, with people increasingly more free in regards to their sexuality. Personally, I could not handle the emotional stress that would coincide with this, like the paranoia and jealousy it would provoke. I like the idea of loyalty and a relationship being a two-person thing.

To build on this topic, do people’s views differ between polyamorousy and polygamy? Whereby the former is more to do with relationships/love in general rather than the commitment of marriage. As I could never indulge in being polyamorous, my stance is the same with polygamy.

I couldn't do it myself but I don't see the need for people to judge if it doesn't affect them and it doesn't hurt anybody.

As for polygamy, it's a necessity arguably for some cultures. Certain Asian cultures have multiple brothers married to the same wife, because they then still have the same genes (so it kind of doesn't matter who raises the child) and then they'll aways have someone just in case a husband dies. That's obviously not such a necessity here so it seems very foreign to us.

Eh, this is just another one of those things that people will HARP ON AND ON AND ON about then. Like almost everything of this nature I can't say I have any issues with it and nor would I say I would or would not engage in it myself. Having feelings for multiple people at once is surely a normal thing and it's only a societal constraint that means we don't act upon it. So, if you're with someone who feels the same then why not.

I would be up for it, yeah. At least I think I could be.

The main issue would be agreeing the terms, limits and boundaries beforehand, and then I'd only go into one if the others were completely happy with it, I wouldn't put it above someone I loved who wasn't happy with the issue. Perhaps I say this rather naively with little experience but I don't think I would mind too much if I had to share someone. It'd probably require constant work or really open minds to work long-term but if the right people went into it I could see it being just as valid a relationship.
