Heh, hi, Neon.
Yeah, it wasn't just the new woman tho... we had a lot of issues. We thought we were in a strong good place, but it turned out my ex and I, well... we grew apart, had different communication styles, we didn't deal well with the jealousy and the NRE. We opened, and then closed our relationship, did a lot of counseling, and nurturing things like dating each other, long trips, music concerts, etc, but we just couldnt make it work anymore. It just so happened the woman he'd dated when we were poly was still around when he and I broke up.
But poly didn't kill our relationship, is my point.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place. --Shaw
