Polyamory is something that society at large is just starting to accept as part of the normal spectrum of romantic relationships. Naturally, there are still some people the concept can be hard to explain to, like your 93-year-old grandma. You may just want to let sleeping dogs lie on that one. But, for the most part, polyamorous people are beginning to feel more comfortable being open about their sexuality. They don’t mumble it under their breath or hide it from their friends. There are even plenty of dating apps and websites now specifically targeted towards polyamorous individuals. That being said, a lot of people—even young millennials—still have some awkward questions about this lifestyle and they aren’t afraid to ask them. Here are awkward things your friends say when you’re polyamorous.
Has everybody been tested?
Being polyamorous is really safer for your sexual health than just being single, if you think about it. When you’re in polyamorous relationships, you are in meaningful relationships with people with whom you can discuss things like std’s and getting tested. That’s way better than just being out there having one night stands.
