    My boyfriends met each other last night.

    It was great! The evening started out pretty tense and a little awkward, but soon both of them eased up. We all had a great time, and they seemed to really, really like each other (one is bisexual, other one is pansexual. A tiny hope within me wants them to get together too). We...

    My Reason For Polyamory

    I feel that relationships which are based around fortifying and feeding the self-worth of yourself and your partner are deleterious to the phenomenon of true, selfless love. True, selfless love is ego-free. Without the desire to feed the ego, there is no jealousy when the loved...
