31. What do you get out of being non-monogamous – it’s a lot of extra work so why do it?
Love. And community.
I did not know such amounts of love before I identified as non-monogamous. There is one thing I am completely sure of this last year – I am well loved. I have absolutely no doubt of this.
The poly community in my area has been unprecedently awesome at being a social resource. They have their own problems, as any group does, but I have met so many amazing people because I got involved with it. On a smaller scale, my polycule is also my community – having them reminds me why I do this, each and every day.
