If you think polyamory might be for you, you must be very honest with yourself about your ability to deal with all of the things I have mentioned above, as well as many things that you might not even be aware of now! Being polyamorous looks much different than thinking about being polyamorous, and everyone I know who is polyamorous has discovered it seems to uncover triggers and insecurities they never knew they had. It is not for everyone; unlike some people, I don’t think polyamory is something that all people should explore. If it is for you, you must be fearless in your moral inventory, mature and calm in your responses to a variety of emotional situations, and compassionate to both yourself and your partners, and your partner’s partners. I will list some websites and books that I recommend to anyone interested in pursuing polyamory, and please do not hesitate to contact me at if you would like to schedule a coaching session.
