my actual writing, if you're curious

I’ve been thinking a lot about how being polyamorous has given me a bunch of really unique feelings and experiences that I wouldn’t otherwise have had, such as the feeling of seeing a partner happy with someone else, listening to them talk about the story of another relationship they have, meeting a partner’s partner and having an instant connection with them (doesn’t always happen, but often does), and calling my partner after a date with someone else to tell them about it.

I’m not going to be presumptuous and claim that monogamous people “haven’t really lived” or are “missing something” from their lives because they haven’t had these experiences, because not everyone wants or cares about them, but it’s really cool that I’ve been able to experience all these things that I never used to think were acceptable or even possible, because I never saw them represented in the media or heard of anyone who experienced them.
