7:15 Topic: “Okay” is a four-letter word
And our topic today is a rebroadcast from July 2008 and relevant for everyone whether you’re poly, monogamous, curious or confused. Get ready for a vintage rants!
- “OK” “fine” are both evil because it doesn’t provide information; instead it begs many questions.
- If you are asking a new person out and you have a current partner, you will need to expect them to meet.
- How tough it is for secondaries ending up mixing it up with somebody or both people from a couple and the challenges that go with that
- Your new relationships need some TLC as well.
- Some advice for the metamour. Don’t use the word “OK.” Say something like “I really enjoy watching Steve doing X” as one example. In conclusion, don’t use “OK”!
- Tina calls in to share thoughts that poly is reaching critical mass and easier to find; on having difficulty finding the POV of young poly folks (versus older and settling down); and on STI information and episodes
- 28:15 Josh calls in about bisexuality—what do you think?
