Polyamory isnt for everybody, and thats okay. Some people, though not inclined to polyamory, are okay with their partner having other loves. Mono-poly relationships are just one more point on that amorphous relationship blob I talked about earlier.
What does commitment look like in a polyamorous relationship?
In a poly relationship, as with a monogamous relationship, commitment means you will be there for that person. Youll support them. Youll take care of them. Youll love them.
