10:30 Topic: I’m in love but just got vetoed!
L writes in for advice. What do you do when you trust that the couple really is poly and end up falling in love with the guy, only to have his wife veto you a bit later when she breaks up with her own boyfriend?
- This sucks and is unfair and unkind.
- Lying about the nature of your relationship isn’t healthy.
- Expecting him to leave her isn’t terribly healthy, either.
- Accept and grieve the loss. Value yourself and the experience.
- Next time, vet the couple to be sure each person is stable, fully embraces polyamory and is personally secure.
