A short note on how relationships seem to slow down significantly when one or more members are apart. The complexity of poly relationships requires a lot more “real-time” communication between it’s members
What I find the toughest part of polyamory is being patient.
Relationships basically get put on pause or on super slow-mo between times together. If there’s physical distance of any sort, the time between can be rather significant. When something potentially powerful just happened or is on the cusp of possibility happening, it’s difficult to have to basically “hold that thought” and wait. Especially if your partner(s) is(are) busy, or aren’t talkative over text.Or if you’re trying to figure out your own thoughts and feelings, and aren’t able to really talk them through.
This thought started as a tweet, but grew to way more than 140 characters, so I decided to make a small ranty-ish post instead.
