Quickly I found though that there were several lessons I had to learn the hard way that these sources either didn’t teach me clearly enough or actually got in my way of learning these lessons.
It’s about an individual exchange and if they have always come up a little short handed, it might be what is showing.nother thing that beginner non-monogamous sources fail to really discuss is the fact that non-monogamous setups where an individual doesn’t spend a long time with any one individual but sees them rarely can allow for people who would normally be toxic and difficult to be around to have plenty of ‘functional’ relationships.
When you first learn about polyamory or non-monogamy, what most people call ‘open relationships’, you’ll likely be directed to several publications: The Ethical Slut, Opening Up, and the website More Than Two.
And these were things I read when I started my journey into non-monogamy.
Like most advice, it’s much easier to give than it is to follow.
And what non-monogamous beginner resources fail to really take into account is that communication is actually really really hard, but not for the reasons they assume.
