My wife and I are very new to the thought of "poly..." lol.
We are looking at starting a triad with my(the husbands) best friend.
Why does everything have to be so tricky. lol.
People that aren't "vanilla" need a different approach. If you want to bed-hop, you need swinging. If you REALLY want to develop relationships, you need to look at poly.......or so the world says. lol
Anyways, either way, there are self-imposed rules. Some are neccessary, depending on partner
In the end you have rules, or guidelines, to live within.
I agree with the "boundary" rule. I think in poly relationships it is VITALLY important to communicate all the time.
Poly has to be defined by the participants in the end. All involved have to have an agreement of sorts
