In other relationships, you may have been able to gauge a person’s feelings for you by how much time and energy they put into your relationship.When you’re dating a poly person, this isn’t necessarily the case. Be the kind of partner who can listen to the things they’re going through without trying to “solve” things.), I’ve assembled a list of advice, adapted from these lists of advice for dating single parents.(Warning: Although I’ve tried to make this advice general, I have a primary relationship and a young child, and my list may be biased toward that experience.) 1.Ask yourself: Am I willing to be in a relationship with someone who has other relationships?(Duh.) Am I willing to enter into a relationship with these other people (metamours)?
In the past, when I’ve dated someone who is new to polyamory, there has been a period of helping them come to terms with the experience.
Polyamory is still an exciting new thing, and often it is misunderstood, or even scary to new people. When you think about it, dating a poly person is a lot like dating a single parent.
