Default Psychology Today Article on NRE (10/17/2019)

New Relationship Energy: What It Is & How to Deal With It
How to sustain long-term relationships when you have a new crush.

Posted Oct 17, 2019 on the Psychology Today website,
by Elisabeth Sheff, PhD, author of The Polyamorists Next Door.


Typical Psychology Today article - brief and basic, but by a reputable author - accurate and to the point - good overview for those new to poly.

Dramatis Personae:
Me: Al99, poly, heterosexual male, 50's
Becky: married to Al99, poly, heterosexual female, late 30's
Bouncingbetty: ldr girlfriend to Al99, poly, pansexual female, mid 30's
Jill: local fwb to Al99, heterosexual female, early 50's.
Sam: Becky's boyfriend, heterosexual male, 50's.
Ben: Becky's long time friend and former partner, heterosexual male, 40's

Good article, gives some insights on how to compensate for NRE. Sheff is a good author, you can depend on her to analyze things in an objective way.

Thanks for sharing.
