Dirtclustit,

I've never heard anyone use the term hyper-respectful before, and I'm curious. Can you maybe explain how it would be done in a hypothetical conversation, or something? I don't want to hijack the thread, maybe it should be a new thread?
My partner and I have very different levels of "being out" about our same-sex relationship, and as we move closer to poly relationships, I feel sure the topic will come up again. This concept seems like it may have some real value. Thanks!
