can polyamory revitalize a relationship? will it create a new self?
Is that Rachel McAdams? Is that image from the Time Traveler’s Wife? I hope not, she was terrible and that was a terrible movie. Book was better, per usual.
Anyway, I think the quote above is the essence of what polyamory is all about. When you have been married to one person for a few years or longer, you not only forget your magic, you often forget theirs too. You absorb the other person, they become an extension of you. This is how the spark starts to sputter and die out.
For me, poly is like waking up. To yourself, to the other. To a new self that is created, and to a new other. The amazing sex drive that also wakes up is just icing on the cake!
