An Adventure in Polyamorous Love and Personal Growth

An Adventure in Polyamorous Love and Personal Growth

Romantic relationships come in many forms; some are magical brief encounters while others are deep emotional bonds that last a lifetime.

Swinging and Polyamory: The Great Divide?

Swinging and Polyamory: The Great Divide?

By Maureen Marovitch
Reprinted from Loving More Issue #33, Winter 2005.

Can You Be “Poly” and Date a Cheater?

By Mystic Life

Most polyamorous people are drawn to this lovestyle because of their distaste for cheating. But what about if you’re dating someone who is cheating on their partner?
