 My 11 Poly Principles

1. Polyamory is about loving multiple people.
2. Self-sufficiency is an essential relationship skill.
3. Remember that only you are responsible for your own happiness and mental health.
4. Assuming malice is stupid and counterproductive.
5. Chill the fuck out and cut out your hysteria.
6. Don't try to change your partners' fundamental traits.
7. Promote communication and nurture warmth.
8. Impose consequences for lies and unsafe sexual practices, and follow through on them.
9. Treat your crushes, partners, and metamors with respect and civility.
10. Be tender and attentive to all of your lovers.
11. When you're jealous and envious, get a life.





    Many polyamorous people are like biscuits: tender and flaky.  Others are like pancakes, tender but not flaky, and some are waffles: poly, but only while they're single.  Every sort of polyamorous carbohydrate needs advice, so, send me your questions (keep them under one hundred words) about open relationships and I'll do my best to tend to the health of your heart and soul. My name is Betty Baker, you can e-mail me at polyadvicenurse@gmail.com, and I am your Poly Advice Nurse.
