    Minx in your ebook you basically write: “If the metaour does not want to talk, then run”.

    Minx: “I have learned that if the metamour isn’t open to communicate with me, I must walk away from the relationship….”

  • Olaf–

    I apologize if my comment came across that way! What works for me might be very different from what works for you. The reason the book is called “8 Things I Wish I’d Known About Polyamory” rather than “8 Things Everyone Should Know About Polyamory” is because its primary goal is to share my own story rather than imposing my morality onto others.

    In short, just because I have to have strong metamour communication doesn’t mean everyone else does! I know plenty of healthy poly relationships in which metamours only have the barest of communications, and it works fine for them. That doesn’t work for me, and the takeaway was supposed to be just that: figure out what works for you (rather than simply imitating what works for me).

      Minx, it always amazes me that “English” speaking people tries to be political correct, while the rest of the world says “hugh?” LOL

      I think that the none-English people understood what you meant.
      I just wanted to point out that it somehow conflicts with this “Dealing with metamour’s D/s”.

      I would walk away too.
      I or better put, I will “prevent” a start of a new relationship with me if there is conflict with the metamours I will encounter. I do not want a “preventable” toxic element introduced in my existing relationship(s). A new relationship is a bonus on top of an already good relationship.

      I am not there to break an existing relationship, and I am not there to put my current partners to harm. It is all about the love.
