A little background
We have been in an open relationship for 5 years but this is the first attempt at practicing true polyamory because we have both only had casual relationships. The Leaf met Flower and we started really figuring out how this would work when love is involved.
I truly believe that Leaf and I are both polyamorous. I have had my doubts about him lately, but I think he is poly. Having spent most of our lives as theoretical, but not practicing polys I don't know if it is something he is devoted to as a lifestyle. We never did get to see it work.
Flower was not poly. I guess she attempted to understand and be okay with it. She said she was okay with it, but then decided she wants him all to herself or not at all.
He knows what NRE is. But I don't think he can view it objectively for what it is. He is so caught up in the feeling he won't stop and think about it rationally.
