Very insightful and interesting discussion. I very much agree that there is no "right" way to have any kind of relationship. All that matters is that it's consensual and works for everybody involved. I also seriously dislike the idea that there's something bad or predatory about hoping to someday form a triad. That's like saying BDSM is abuse. It's only wrong if it's not consensual and agreed to. I also find it really interesting how often I see people online calling people "unicorn hunters", which is pejorative, when the couple looking involves a man, but if the couple is two women, whether they're seeking another woman to form a relationship with or a man, they recieve nothing but support. It seems that in order to combat sexism against women or people assigned female at birth or even percieved sexism, some people have swung over to being sexist towards men or people assigned male at birth, even if it's unconsciously.

The "unicorn" triad slamming does get a little out of hand ...

Yeah, on some other poly forums, it seems like every couple who posts is automatically labeled "unicorn hunters" it's a bit much. It's like guilty until proven innocent, it's a problem.
