Just like the title says, what are your thoughts on a polyamorous relationship? Lately I've been hearing a lot about this sort of thing and I was curious what other people think about the matter. For those who don't know, polyamory refers to a relationship between three or more(I guess) consenting people. Not sure how well known it is haha...

I personally don't think I'd ever want that type of relationship, because the person you're with wouldn't really be "yours" completely. Like, they couldn't give their all to you because there would be a third person. But I'm curious to know what everyone else thinks

I guess if everyone involved in the relationship is OK with it then it's not any of my business for the most part. I personally don't think it's appropriate and say if my girlfriend told me she was in love with another guy or girl and wanted me to start a three way relationship I would dump her immediately. I like to believe in monogamous relationships as the ideal way to go with love.

The manga Futari to Futari is an example of a polyamorous relationship involving four women. It's yuri and explicit but the topic is covered.

^ What he said is exactly what I think too. A relationship between only two people is the way to go

Doesn't matter to me, as long as everyone is alright with it. Honestly, it isn't my place to be judgmental. There is a difference between going behind your partner's back and taking a lover than there is bring another person into the relationship. I'm not sure if I could do it, but hey, it makes some people happy.

I encountered someone who wanted to be in a relationship with both me and another guy. I was very conflicted since I loved her but I really didn't want that. I am not someone who could be in a relationship like that. I would walk away from anyone immediately if I learned they wanted that now. For those who are fine with it and can make it work though it doesn't bother me.

The only way I could see this working for me is.. If we had a three-way love, like everybody was in love with everybody, I don't think I could have done that, because I'm straight and if a girl was with me, she'd probably like another guy, then it'd cause problems for me on that end -.- but who knows, maybe that girl would have been bi and then another bi and it would have been perfect ! xD Haha, but that aside.. I have no problem with other people who are okay with it, I just can't find myself in that kind of relationship without there would have been a mutual love between all parties:P

I don't think it's something I would ever personally be interested in being involved with, but, man, as long as everyone involved is consenting and happy with the situation, I see no problem with it. Do what makes you happy as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. c:

If these type of relationships work with some people, that is good and fine. I can see triads working out (three people in love). I'm sure some quads work out, too (four people in love). The higher the number of people, the harder it has to be to keep the relationship together and healthy, though.

I'm fine with this type of thing. I'm sure a lot of them don't last very long, but I'm sure sometimes these things work out, and if everyone involved with it is happy with it or fine with it, that is good for them.

Monogamous relationships between only two people are ideal, though. Maybe not ideal for all people, but in general, it is ideal. It is ideal for most of humanity. Most people should only be in monogamous relationships where it is only them and one other person because if there were a lot of poly relationships...well, there would be a lot of failed poly relationships. More than two people in a relationship will tend to be harder than two people in a relationship. Relationships with only two people involved are hard enough. So this is why, when it comes down to it, it is ideal for most people to form relationships with one other person instead of poly relationships. And as we know, that is the norm.

I personally don't and will never approve. Two-person-relationship is what I agree with.

I don't mind people in that kind of relationship, but for me personally, if I have someone, the thought of sharing her doesn't sit right with me. I want her all to myself, if I have someone.

I wouldn't mind being in one, just to give it a try to see if it works for me or not.

I am accepting of a lot of taboo relationships.
