"Back in the early 2000s when I was coming out as a lesbian, I did not know anyone that would be considered polyamorous. It has been a journey—one that MCC allowed space for me to discover and live in.

I personally believe it is the most authentic and loving way for me to be in relationship, while aware that it is not possible or even advisable for others."

"Open relationships only work if the people involved both (if it starts from a one-to-one relationship) want it," life coach and therapist Karen Hartmann, tells Bustle. "Otherwise, I have never seen it work out in the long term. For that reason, I suggest to be clear, open, and straight with it. After all, you want to go into an open relationship. You cannot start it with half truth and being secretive about it. However, there is no need to be harsh and to run your partner over. State it as it is — without excusing yourself. Share about you, your wishes, and what you want to experience."
