Recently a poly friend observed, “There are no secondary people. Be careful how you treat everyone in relationships.” …Fine, but how do you actually pull that off? Where’s the list of what to do?…
Important, and this issue has come up recently in my personal life.
AggieSez is one of the awesome new(ish) bloggers on the polyamory scene over at Solopoly.net, quite possibly my favorite blog at the moment. She’s working on writing a book with Lily Loyd about nonstandard relationships: “relationships that are somehow off society’s standard relationship escalator norm: strictly monogamous, lifelong cohabitating partners (married or equivalent, perhaps with kids) or relationships that are clearly progressing toward that goal.” She put together a survey seeking first-person experiences and data for the book. She’s had a great response so far but needs more data from people who aren’t part of a primary couple. So if you’re poly and aren’t primary partners with someone else, please consider adding your voice to her (anonymous) survey!
so few have had the privilege of earning my trust…there are a lot of people who would rather lie and hurt you than to just be your friend…sad but true
I tend to trust to soon. But…you break that trust, there is no second chances. Maybe a flaw? But to go around in this world and not trust fellow humans it would be a lonely world.
I used to trust easily at first, but lose trust just as easily. Now, I am far more careful with my heart, my body and reserve trust for those who earn it.
To the casual observer, this young couple look just like any other teenagers in love.
But pretty Katie Hill and her boyfriend Arin Andrews share a unique bond - they were both born as the opposite sex.
Katie, 18, spent the first 15 years of her life as Luke, son of a Marine colonel, while Arin, 16, was born a girl called Emerald who excelled at ballet dancing and won beauty contests.
Both struggled with their sexuality all through their childhoods and were teased and bullied but their lives were changed when they both began hormone therapy and later met at a trans support group in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and instantly fell in love.
Katie said: ‘All I saw was a handsome guy. We’re perfect for each other because we both had the same troubles growing up.

Again, this was the first column I wrote. I will say it again and again: length of relationship does not cancel out consent.
Reid Mihalko’s formula for how to have Difficult Conversations - article available here
This came across my path at a particularly good time. I’ve used this formula (just now) to write up a plan for a conversation I need to have. Haven’t had it yet, but I’m feeling much better now that I have an idea of how to approach this difficult, scary, intense conversation with my loved ones.
I’m really enjoying this entire series of videos and have found lots of helpful advice.
