Freshly single, I started identifying as solo poly. Solo polyamorous people have no boyfriends, no wives or open marriages; no primary or secondary partners. Instead of using labels, the needs, rules and responsibilities of the relationship are agreed with each partner you have.
To sum that up, basically, my relationship status is almost always: I’m seeing people, but I’m also single. The people I’m seeing know this. I’m also bisexual and date people across the gender spectrum. Alternative relationships have been around for forever.
There’s a line in a movie. I want to say it’s Judy Dench saying it but not sure. But that sort of stout – in character – and mature woman she plays so well.
“In my day we called that fucking around”.
Very little new about it.
