Would you imagine there are not tags for 'scheduling/schedule/schedules', the issue at the core of multi-partner management?
So, how do you do it? At what point does it come cumbersome? How many partners can you pull off with only 24 hrs to a day?
To clarify, I am a leech sucking at the lifeblood of our Northern welfare society, sitting on my arse all day and pretending to 'study'. Still, it seems I have barely time for dating as it is! I shudder to think of what the situation would be like if I actually had a JOB
Of the seven nights per week, two are reserved for my mum. One sleepover per week is Flattie's (she is the lovely girl I'm currently temporarily separated from, in that I moved back to mum's for a while
). I am looking forward to establishing a pattern of weekend sleepovers/family dates with my couple, with a possibility for individual dates during the week. I think that regularity and predictability is the key to managing poly with kids, am not normally such a scheduling nazi.
With my sweetheart we have talked about scheduling as well to prevent excessive pining. When I'm with him I don't wish to be simultaneously interacting with anyone else, so let's say a few hours at minimum every other day.
And yeah, I am still living up to hope of attracting a real primary of my own. Hopefully someone who doesn't have any kind of social life of their own and/or doesn't need sleep to make time for us two to be together. Is this a pipe dream, especially since it's starting to look like I can't avoid getting a job indefinitely.
