A Photography Blog for Poly People
You’ve probably seen 3 of these people, but we have now expanded to 4! <3
“They made us believe that real love, the one that’s strong, only happens once, more likely before your 30ths.
They never told us that love is not something that you can put in motion, neither has time schedule.
They made us believe that each one of us is the half of an orange, and that life only makes sense when u find that other half.
They did not tell us that we were born as whole, and that no-one in our lives deserve to carry on his back such responsibility of completing what is missing on us: we grow through life by ourselves. If we have a good company it’s just more pleasant.
They made us believe in a formula “two in one”: two people sharing the same line of thinking, same ideas, and that it is what works.
It’s never been told that it has another name: invalidation, that only two individuals with their own personality is how you can have a healthy relationship. It has been made to believe that marriage is an obliged institution and that fantasies out of hour should be repressed.
They made us believe that the thin and beautiful are the ones who is more loved, that the ones that have little sex are boring, and the ones that has a lot of it are not trustful, and that will always have a old shoes to a crooked foot; what they forgot to tell us is that there are more crooked minds than feet.
They made us believe that there’s one way formula to be happy, the same one to everybody, and the ones that escape from that are condemned to be delinquents.
We have never been told that those formulas go wrong, they get people frustrated, they are alienating, and that we can try other alternatives.
Oh! Also they did not tell us that no one will tell those things to us. Each and everyone of us will have to learn by ourselves.
And, when we get to the point that you are in love with yourself first, that’s when you can fall in love with somebody.”
Sunshine: I want no-chicken chicken noodle soup…
Charlie: okay… *get out of bed to go to store at 2200 hours*
Sunshine: wait.. you can’t leave me!
Harley: okay, well I’ll go get it.
Sunshine: no… you can’t leave either…
Charlie: … *starts to leave anyways*
Sunshine: I want both of you to stay… I need a fourth girlfriend…
Harley & Charlie: *stare* FOURTH!?
Charlie: Who’s the third??
Harley: You’ve been holding out on us… lol
Sunshine: oh, no I meant third >.< I counted myself…
Harley: I was about to say… rude…
LOL! So cute >.<
The last post was written by Harley, who is in a triad with Charlie and Sunshine. Their tumblr is so cute I had problems to decide what to reblog. Check it out! =)
You realize how similar and how different you all are, and the beauty that exists in each one of you and how, by some magic, you fit so well together and it all makes sense. <3 I miss them now…
Things only other poly people can truly understand: the ridiculously giddy feeling you get when both your partners text you at the same time.
- Example 15 from “Strange Things Your Friends Say to You When You’re Polyamorous”
Together for 4+ years (although we only just realized a few months ago that we’ve been in a poly relationship all this time…definitely quite the “aha!” moment!).
