healthy polyamorous: 3 people all in a happy relationship \o/
unhealthy polyamorous: joe loves becky and jim. becky is not comfortable sharing joe with jim, but stays quiet anyway.
not a polyamorous: joe has 4 girlfriends. shhhh. they dont know.
more healthy polyamory: joe is in a relationship with becky. joe is also in a relationship with jim. jim and becky don’t date, but are friendly with each other and both happy with the other dating joe.
some more healthy polyamory: joe is in a relationship with becky. becky is also dating marie, sleeping with mark and lindsey, and occasionally topping suzanne. joe is not dating any of these people, but is comfortable with becky’s involvement with them. joe is also interested in jim, pending becky’s approval.
even more healthy polyamory: becky is in a relationship with joe. while they have never been polyamorous before, their relationship is strong and they’d like to include more people. they sit down and talk about it, and joe decides that he’d like to approach jim as a potential partner. becky thinks this is a great idea—or is skeptical, but agrees to have dinner with jim and joe to form an opinion.
unhealthy polyamory: becky and joe are in a monogamous relationship that’s on the rocks—but if they can just bring in a cute bisexual girl, the relationship will be completely repaired!
super-unhealthy polyamory: joe makes the relationship about forcing becky to choose between him and marie. when she chooses to spend time with marie instead of him, joe makes her feel like shit.
polyamory comes in all shapes and sizes. while the first example is great, it assumes a universal model. I wanted to expand the model a bit!
