Crazy how that works.

Does a poly break up hurt worse than a regular breakup? I’m so hurt still that my girlfriend left, even though I’m happily married.

Suffering in silence is not fun.

The hardest thing about being poly is dealing with a breakup if you aren't "out." My coworkers have no idea I just got dumped. We were together almost a year. I am not sure I want to date again.

Different strokes for different folks.

I'm getting tired of everyone thinking I should be okay because I have a girlfriend. I'm not okay and that's not how being poly works. I'm allowed to be sad about a breakup.

It's good to have someone who understands you.

Just broke up with one of my boyfriends ): it was my idea, but it still really hurts. First polyamorous breakup :( I'm lucky my other bf is so comforting

Every relationship has its own challenges.

My Bf broke up with me last night. I've been so sad. My husband is amazing for helping me through this. 

Yes, we're poly.
