Humans tend to fall into two camps when it comes to what sort of romantic relationship is “natural.” There are those who believe we were built to be monogamous, and those who believe we were not. But I’ve never met anyone who believed that trios were the natural state for human sexuality, and understandably so—three people together can be messy and complicated. It’s almost monogamy, but it isn’t. It’s almost polyamory, but it isn’t. Anyone who dabbles in threesomes—or makes a regular date of them—knows that there are many ways they can go wrong if you don’t plan and communicate. And there might be nothing more awkward in the world than a botched threesome. They can ruin relationships and friendships (and reputations). Here are ways threesomes can terribly backfire.

It’s just a stranger at a bar, or from an app, when the threesome occurs. But fast forward a few months and it’s the new hire at your office. Or the new boss at your office.
