Text: I love our family. For all the imperfections, all the tears, and all the struggles… I wouldn’t have it any other way. To Forever, and Beyond. I’m so scared of losing her.]
I know there are struggles… but I truly believe she’s learning and getting better. I love her so much, even if she’s your partner. She’s one of my best friends (and she started out hating me). I can’t imagine forever without her… but I worry I’ll have to learn how to…

TEXT: Dear E,
This isn’t jealousy so please, don’t call it that. What it is, is me loathing the way you treat her. The way you need a Super Women and cannot fathom that your partner is human. You cannot accept weakness, insecurity or humanity from her. Because of this she shuts her emotions off, shuts down around you. She does this because you need a strong partner. Fine. I get that. But what C is doing for you, and the detremental things I know she has done for you, are not healthy. You need to get over yourself and let her be human. Love her when she is strong and weak, why can’t you do that?
I may be falling in love with her, but that has nothing to do with the fact that you are psycologicly and emotionaly abusing your girlfriend.
Sincerely, Me (the other partner)]
[Black text on a white background that says: I feel uncomfortable i monogamous relationships. It’s not that I have feelings for other people most of the time, I just don’t like that the person I’m with might not go after someone they want just because they’re with me. I don’t care. Maybe that makes me a bad person, I just like my partner to know I don’t want them to exclusively be with me.]

TEXT: I used to be afraid of my relationships lasting long term. Now I’m terrified that this will end. I’m starting to have trouble imagining my life without them.]
The real secret is I want to be with them forever, but I’m afraid to tell them so early in the relationship.

“I’m polyamourous, but I have no idea how to explain that to my girlfriend, who is a demi… I don’t want her to feel like I love her any less, that she isn’t enough to make me happy, but I just have so much love that I need to share, whilst she can only have this connection with one person, and that person is me…” ]
