So, here’s the thing. There’s this really great person in my life that I have never shared a picture of on my social media. We’ve known each other for several months and love each other in such a sweet way. We have weathered some real stuff with each other in our relationship, including my complete and utter panic about being seen and loved. And, the fact that the world isn’t setup for us to be polyamorous and practicing ethical non-monogamy.
We’re both married to other people and he has kids that he worries won’t be treated kindly by other parents if they knew that he and his wife have other partners. It’s frustrating and sad to feel like love like this can’t be celebrated or even accepted. This is such a real and beautiful part of my life that I want to honor its presence and impact.
I love our love. I love that we spend time together and with our partners and that we all share in each other’s lives. Cute couple selfies aside, love is alive and real and it’s amazing, and it doesn’t matter how much of the world can accept it. I’m truly delighted that this person is one of my partners in life. Pictures, no pictures or these silly cryptic pictures of these moments we’ve had; I had to share the love. 💖#relationshipdiversity #polyamory #loveislove
