going mono? dating a mono? accckkk!!
how do you navigate potential relationships with people who DON'T want to date you as long as you're in another relationship? Is this just immediately a "hard stop" in your interest in them or do you try to educate them/get them to come around.
My partner struggles with this currently. He's interested in a girl who doesn't want to date him as long as he's in a relationship. This pains him as he is really interested in her but doesn't really know how to go about the situation.
I personally feel that if someone I'm interested can't handle the fact that I'm in a relationship, then they aren't right for me at all anyway. And I definitely don't feel it's at all poly to "give up" one relationship for another. How do you find the balance?
If you don't mind me asking, currently, how many relationships are you navagating? Are any of them monogamous solely with you? Have you ever successfully dated a monogamous person?
