Just had the most epic facepalm-date ever.
Came to see her for a drink after talking for 2 days non-stop. She's all cheeky and cute thinks I'm a liar and afraid of commitment (which is why I lie) when my profile said non-monogamous first line.
She said she didn't like to share but that was it. Never asked me about my apartment or my situation etc. I get it that i could be more clear... But seriously? Came cross town and she's all jaw to the floor "think you should go". Wow.
I didn't want to rub my partners in her face, I usually don't bring partners up unless people ask about them ( and even then, it's private) because I'm dating for myself, it's not about them.
But I guess saying "non-monogamous" is not good enough. I need to provide a link to poly on Wikipedia, and ask 3 times if they are ok with poly like it's done sort of a medical condition. Disgusting.
@poly_pockets did I say that I lie? Where, maybe a typo...? I was exhausted and on the bus when typing. I'm going to look it over.
She said I'm a liar as a tease (sounds bad but it wasn't). I thought she means my religious practice and what she thought I'm lying about was my non-monogamy. I Wrote about it in length this morning here: https://www.reddit.com/r/polyamory/comments/d5ey53/a_big_misunderstanding_or_why_you_want_to_be/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share
(It explains better)
To your question... I say I'm non-monogamous. It usually comes up when dating, or I bring it up myself.
