How to be Polyamorous: Polyamory lifestyle. 

The word polyamory (pronounced, "polly-amor-ee") comes from the Greek word poly, meaning "many, several", and the Latin word amor, meaning "love" (amorous, means "loving"). Many believe that the term "poly-amorous" was coined in 1990 by Morning Glory Zell-Ravenheart to describe the practice of, and desire for, intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the knowledge of all partners involved. Polyamorous relationships are often called “poly” for short. Poly relationships can be between two people, or among more than three people in a variety of combinations. These relationships can be long-term or occasional and for any duration depending on the people involved. Polyamory is a relatively new term. It was first used in the 1990s, but has been gaining in popularity since the early 2000s.

Polyamory: a growing movement for ethical non-monogamy

Polyamorous relationships are not the same as cheating, or being promiscuous. Polyamorous relationships are based on the concept of honesty, communication and respect. Polyamory is defined as the practice of maintaining multiple loving relationships simultaneously with the knowledge of everyone involved. Polyamory is not a synonym for promiscuity or an excuse to be unfaithful. When practiced responsibly, in a healthy manner, it is every bit as legitimate as monogamy, if not more so.

While there are a growing number of resources on the subject, there still exists a great deal of stigma within society at large when it comes to relationships that stray outside of the confines of traditional monogamy. Polyamory is a subset of non-monogamy, or relationships that aren't monogamous. Polyamory isn't casual sexual relations frequently with different partners as in promiscuity, but aims to foster multiple loving, caring and intimate relationships.

Polyamory advice

Relationships take work, regardless of whether they have a primary partner or not. Being polyamorous doesn't mean that you have multiple partners and just do whatever you want without thought or care. Just like being in a monogamous relationship doesn't mean that that person doesn't have to try to keep the relationship happy and fulfilling. It is possible to love more than one person at once, want more than one partner at one time, and still give each of those partners the individualized love and affection that they are due.
