Solo poly


Recommended Posts

I have become really curious about solo poly as of late.  I have also become curious about relationship anarchy.  I am an avid reader of KIMCHI CUDDLES, which is a webcomic about polyamory, so I think that is where I heard those terms.  I guess I basically consider my friends to be my significant others, but I don't know how to tell them that or whether it would be appropriate to do so or even if it is appropriate to think of my friends that way at all.  I don't want to make anything weird.  But I am excited to find a label that MIGHT describe how I am feeling.  I would rather label myself than my relationships.

What would you do if you were me?

With my own friends I am very open so I would probably ask/tell them directly, but I don't know your friends of course.

Do they read the same comic? Maybe you can show it to them and casually talk about the terms that are explored there. That way you can test the waters a bit.

"Significant others" as in you consider yourself to be in a partnership with them? If so, you need to talk to them. You can't be in a partnership with someone without their consent. I totally get feeling that your friends are important to you in the way a partner might be, but you need to talk to them before actually describing them with the same type of teminology.

I don't talk about them that way.  I just sort of think about them that way.  You do have a fair point, though.

Yeah it might cause expectations that they have not agreed to.
