I do know two polyamorous couples but I wouldn’t say it’s common. Many couples may not be open about it though.

Yes. I posted about it in the other thread actually. One of my good friends is in a similar relationship.

Yes, I know one committed poly-amorous relationship that consists of two women and a guy, they live together and they would attend a work event together. 

It can throw you off when you first encounter it just because the 2 person relationship is so ingrained in your head.  But I’m glad to see people more openly out and about with different types of relationships because I think ultimately exposure is the best medicine for all kinds of bigotry and hang ups some people have.  We as a society just need to get over a lot of stupid shit and focus on the things that matter.

I don’t know anyone personally, so it would shock me if I saw a relationship like that (the area I live in is pretty ‘traditional’ in that sense though). If I lived in one of the bigger cities I would be much more likely to encounter one. I wouldn’t call these relationships super common though.

I feel sheltered, I have never known anyone like this! Or any polyamorous people, that I know of. 

I would prefer not to know about it, anyway. Too Much Information for me, I want to mind my own business.

I know some poly folks, nothing weird or uncommon for me. I think it’s lovely that they’ve found relationships that work for them and make everyone happy.

I’ve known a few poly people in real life, but all of their relationships have gone up in flames.

Some people can do poly in a healthy way, some can’t. They have their own set of pro’s and con’s, just like monogamous relationships do.

(I was quite sheltered back in the south, and didn’t meet any poly people until I moved to the West Coast in my late 20’s.)

I know a poly trio. That sounds like how they act: loving and intimate but not inappropriate. Whatever floats your boat…

I don’t personally know any poly trios, but I find your detailed description of the situation weirder than the relationship; giving the minute-by-minute breakdown of minimally relevant facts (who went to the bathroom when, etc.) makes it seem sort of like these are some exotic specimens on display.

I thought this story was going to be a really well executed affair on Joey’s behalf where the girlfriend didn’t know about the mistress and tbh I was kind of disappointed that this was not what happened. But maybe I’m watching too many scandalous TV shows cool

I know one couple (I have met them twice) who are married. The husband has a girlfriend and the wife is alright with it even though she is not into women. 

I also have an ex (straight male) I who was into involving men in the bedroom. Other than than that I know a few couple who are into swinging/ partner swap.

God I thought this was leading into where Joey was having an affair and the women where both there but didn’t cotton on hahaha (affairs really aren’t funny don’t know why I’m laughing)

But to answer the real post nope I don’t know of any poly trio’s. Have to be honest it’d shock me if I saw that but only because I haven’t seen it or heard about it before. Each to their own though

All I gotta say is good luck to Joey especially if their cycles have synced. He gets double the PMS. 😂
