(Photo/Eva Claire Schwartz, [email protected]) Abby Jones hates the trope of love triangles prevalent in the media and movies, but not for the same reasons as most.“Any time there’s a love triangle, I’m just like, ‘This is stupid.’ I don’t like this, I don’t like ‘You have to choose,’” said Jones, a sophomore theatre and entertainment and media studies major from Roswell.“I know a lot of people feel the same way about love triangles and that kind of thing in media, but they don’t know about polyamory.”For Jones, identifying as polyamorous means she prefers to be in “a relationship with multiple people at the same time.” She sums up her romantic feelings with a simple question: “Why do I have to pick just one person?
Between going to work, feeding yourself and sleeping, there isn’t an awful lot of time left in the day.
Imagine having to divide that time between two people.
Kamala cries without tears-- she really got on my nerves--- the men in that relationship both seem homosexual( which is fine- just takes the reality out of reality..
All the "overly sincere" hugging seemed so " overly sincere!
This just appeared on Avvo Stories: Millennials and polyamory: Will dating ever be the same?
By Elizabeth Weiss A recent edition of The Washington Post Magazine’s Date Lab — pairing two Washingtonians on a blind date — featured two millennials: a polyamorous woman and a woman open to trying something new.The new generation of polyamory “After my divorce, I wanted to start from scratch and relearn how to be in a relationship. I think that appeals to millennials — especially urban ones who moved from somewhere far away — because it becomes like family.” Hacienda Villa, a sex-positive intentional community in Bushwick, Brooklyn, is one example of a place that promotes that familial feeling.The last thing I wanted was to date and start the whole dysfunctional cycle again,” says Lucy Gillespie, creator, writer, and producer of Unicornland, a fictional web series about a woman who unconsciously practices “unicorning” by dating polyamorous couples to explore her own sexuality. Heather Claus — aka Nookie Notes, owner of online dating site Dating — [says] “In non-monogamy, I am exactly me. Fourteen full-time members reside together in one space, some monogamous, some “monogamish,” some ethically non-monogamous, and some polyamorous.” Sarah Mc Manus, who helped find the community organization “Athens Polyamory” in 2013, describes polyamory as falling under a broad umbrella of “non-monogamy.”“A lot of different people refer to polyamory as consensual or ethical non-monogamy,” Mc Manus said.She also said swinging, open relationships and even cheating exist as arrangements in non-monogamy The important distinction between polyamory and cheating, however, is the matter of consent from all parties.“[Polyamory] makes sure everyone knows what’s going on and consents to it,” Mc Manus said.The outing failed to produce fireworks between the women, but the Date Lab write-up did prompt scathing online comments.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
