2016 has definitely been the year of learning about love. I learned I am capable of loving someone so deeply that my heart feels full and like it could never be filled by anyone else in the world. I learned that love comes in a lot of forms. I learned that love doesn't mean compatability… Continue reading Learning About Love
I've fought hard to live honestly as a non monogamous person. Dating around isn't always fun and reindeer games. There's men that I've really likes that haven't been ok with it and couldn't date because I wouldn't entertain the idea of monogamy. I've had to break hearts of guys that thought they could change my… Continue reading Why I Don’t Cheat
Yep I was actually in a 4 year monogamous relationship. I didn't plan it that way, when I started dating the guy I happen to have not been seeing anyone else then he asked me to be mono and I figured I could give it a try as an adult. You don't really know your… Continue reading I Was Monogamous Once
The question I hear most when I tell people I'm in an open relationship "so how does that work?" My standard sarcastic response is "well" with a big smile on my face.

I was in a discussion recently about resolving conflict in relationships through honest communication. One of them mentioned two things that I think are pretty normal in relationships, the first was having a hard time with patience while waiting for loved ones to connect with and articulate their feelings and also how much resolution is… Continue reading Resolving Relationship Conflict and Emotional Processing
Last time I was in the dating world as a single person I was 22. Meaning I didn't have a boyfriend or primary partner. Since then I've still been in the dating world but not as a single person. It's been a roller coaster of a year with my partner and I, so I had… Continue reading When I Meet The Right Man
I am kind of funny when it comes to dating. I don't want someone to be my boyfriend or try and be super involved in each others lives. There has only been one person to date that I have actually wanted to be serious with and integrate our lives in a traditional relationship kind of… Continue reading Romantic Friendships
Bi guys. Yes the best thing ever is bi guys. They're not new to the world but they are new to me. Like 6 months ago my opinion on bi guys would have been totally different. I tend to like really masculine men. Assertive, opinionated, football watching, fix the house and car kind of guys.… Continue reading I Found The Best New Thing
