Non-primary partners speak out on how to treat us well in poly/open relationships
Earlier I posted to this forum, asking people here for do's/don'ts about how they prefer to be treated in poly/open relationships. This was part of a crowdsourcing project I'm doing for my blog SoloPoly.net, to create a list of do's/don'ts that can serve as a positive model -- since social conditioning offers mostly bad lessons about how to handle non-primary, non-monogamous relationships.

After gathering lots of input, I just published the first version of this list:


Please feel free to share this post with others.

This is a work in progress! More input is definitely welcome. Feel free to comment here, leave a comment on my blog post, or e-mail me at aggiesez@hotmail.com.

Please note: This post is intended to offer advice from the perspective of non-primary partners. So if you want to suggest changes or additions to this list, please indicate whether you currently have a primary partner. I'll definitely consider input from anyone, but that's crucial context for this project.

Thanks for sharing this! I'm reading right now and will definitely be passing it along.

Expanded this article, more input welcome!
Just a quick heads up: Since I originally published the result of this crowdsourcing project, Non-primary partners tell how to treat us well, I've continued to gather input. Today I published an expanded version of this list of tips.

For more, see this thread.

Thanks again!
