Just A Teen.I'm only a teenager, so you guys probably wont take me very seriously but that's okay with me. I'm hoping someone who reads this can look past the fact that I am only sixteen and see my story and questions as real, and not just a 'sex thing'.
I am polyamorous.
I'm not in a relationship with anybody now, and I never really have been, but I love the idea.
I've only told one of my friends and the first thing she asked me was if it was about sex.
I told her no, its not.
I think it spawns off of the fact that 1) my parents spit when I was very young and neither of them ever had a 'normal' relationship with anybody else. 2) I just want to be able to love (note, not make love, just love) two people at the same time. I want to be able to feel the flow of love between the people in the group as we hold hands or cuddle. 3) I just love the idea.
So, I'm posting this not only to tell my story, but to ask some questions. And I'm hoping someone will take the time to respond to them.
1- Did any of you know you were polyamorous when you were teenagers?
2- How did you find out?
3- How do you meet other polyamorous people?
4-What are some terms I should know when (and if) I bring this up with my other friends.
5-How did you tell your parents?!
6-Is it hard to be polyamorous?
Thanks for reading this. Hopefully you didn't/don't just dismiss this because I'm only a teenager.
