Thanks for the link. Very basic and non-sensational. Might be a good one to give to people that you come out to as a primer.

Agreed, the article is a pretty good introduction to polyamory and lays some of the most common misconceptions to rest.

Just two small nits to pick ...

Nit #1:

Re:
Quote:
"Often described as 'consensual and responsible non-monogamy,' polyamory can characterize anyone who engages in intimate relationships with multiple people in a way that is consensual and communicative of all relationships."
Oops, I think that's too broad a definition. For example poly is supposed to be different from swinging, and yet, swinging, too, is (or should be) a kind of consensual and responsible non-monogamy. So when speaking of "consensual and responsible non-monogamy," polyamory should be equated not with the set but with one of the subsets.

Nit #2:

I guess it's my fault for not having the latest and "greatest" of computers, but my computer hated that webpage! I could barely get it to scroll up and down. A great article is only helpful if you can realistically make it a part of your day!

Okay I'll stop picking. I'm still glad I read it, just to let you know, and overall I would recommend it.

Done.
Like the fact that it leaves open spaces to elaborate.

Good article. It's probably good that they talked about job risks and scheduling challenges. Those are things that polyamorists do have to consider.
