Polyamorous Relationship FAQ: “How Do You Define Polyamory and Polyamorous Relationships?”

Laurie Ellington, Poly-Coach, Offers Coaching Tips for Open Relationships, Polyamorous Relationships, Poly Dating, and Ethical Non-Monogamy.


People often come to me and ask me to define polyamory and polyamorous relationships.  Here’s how I define polyamory:

I define polyamory as a relationship lifestyle where all parties are open to having multiple loving relationships that may be sexual, or not. People in polyamorous relationships understand the importance of open honest communication and choose to act in ways that respect others.  Everyone is “in the know.”  This creates a safe container for people to discover what loving more than one person means and to learn how to best support others in doing the same.

One thing I love about polyamory is that there is no one way to describe it and there is no one way to be in a polyamorous relationship.  I continuously remind and support my polyamorous coaching clients that they get to create and re-create their poly relationship as they go along.  I see poly coaching as a way to empower people to take the reigns in how they want to be in relationship with themselves and with others without relying so much on societal norms.

For me, it’s been an amazing journey.  I love that I get to define and redefine what my relationship to relationship is every day.   This level of freedom can be daunting for some.  That’s normal.  What’s important is to trust that you are not alone.  There are so many resources available in books and online to help people wherever they are on the polyamorous path.
