how can i describe polyamory better?
Hello everybody,

I have one question and need help as soon as possible. I've been dating this guy for a while now and with the way he acts with other women i've been wanting to try bringing up being in a poly relationship. i have recently been talking to someone as well and like him alot. he wants me to date him, but im not quite sure how to bring up the conversation with my current boyfriend. i've explained polyamory a little bit but im not quite sure he really understands it. my sister is polyamorous and the other guy is also married and poly. i want to try and start by explaining polyamory a little better, but not sure how to start it off. any ideas?

Have you explained polyamory in abstract terms, or connected with something that you are? If you have told him that you are poly but you feel he doesn't "get it" yet, then that's a very different conversation from what you would need if you had only talked about it in the abstract.

How long have the two of you been seeing each other?

You might start by asking, "How would you feel about my having two boyfriends?" and see what happens.

Or just "I don't want to be exclusive right now" -- maybe that?
