My friend might have misread my intention when I opened up to him about being polyamorous. He kept on insinuating that I was the one coming onto him, even though I told him I was never interested. I am so confused on how to deal with this.
I am new to the world of polyamory and I’m struggling to recognize and celebrate the success of our relationship without the relationship escalator. How can I get out of my own head about this monogamy programming?
I came out to my parents as gay about a year ago. But a week ago, my dad hired a female sex worker for me. I felt so embarrassed and awkward initially, but ended up having a good time anyway. Now my dad thinks I’m straight. Is he right?
After fourteen years together with my husband, I am starting to get really depressed thinking about how he will be the only person I have sex with until I die. We briefly talked about non-monogamy, but he is unwilling to experiment. How do I deal with the struggle with monogamy? How can I stay content with my husband?
My best friend recently divorced his husband and moved across the country to pursue a new job and life. I was very close with both my best friend and his husband before the separation/divorce, and was even the maid of honor at their wedding. Is it okay for me to contact my best friend’s ex husband and offer my condolences & support?
My partner and I have been dating for a few years, non-monogamous from the start. She connected with a stable secondary partner of two months recently, but this is the first time any of us had a stable connection outside of ours. We disagree on who we should spend the holidays with. Am I being too selfish?
I connected with a friend of my partner’s. When I told my partner that we chatted on Facebook, she got really hurt and upset. What did I do wrong? Am I the asshole?
A friend of my boyfriend came into town who he hasn’t seen in a long time. But things got really weird when they started being intimate with each other even though we are in a monogamous relationship. Am I being paranoid about feeling weirded out?
My family keeps on yelling at each other as a way to resolve conflicts. My mom screams whenever she has a bad day, while my dad talks down to us. I feel sick and nauseous every time I get yelled at. How can I develop a better relationship with my parents who come from a different culture?
