One of the subjects I just keep coming back to like an old scab. But for good reason (Hello, single friends, this one’s for you! Every single person’s guide to dating or romance tries to give you the hard sell about how strongly you should desire your singledom. Maybe we really do want a relationship with a significant other. Everything is as non-committal as possible, until something insane or drastic happens and parties are ‘forced’ to show if they are ‘official’ or not. They want polyamory (or they think they do), they don’t want a relationship (or they just don’t know), and then you’re left wondering what it is you signed up for. But many people like to lob this in down the track, as though it justifies indecision between many potential dates. You have to have the discussion, directly or indirectly. At some point, people have to start making decisions, and figure out if it is exclusivity we need from the person we’ve just started to think is rather great.
If you’re convinced the person you’re pursuing would do a runner because, after a month of ‘hanging out’, asking them about your status would be ‘too much’… If you’re keen, and they are keen, and you want a monogamous relationship together (eventually), then at some point, you should feel safe to have the conversation. There’s only so long you can ‘keep things as they are’ without addressing the elephant in the room…Take ownership of your feelings. Perhaps they aren’t sure what you want from the potential-relationship either.
So, let me save you some energy and time: this person will not be magically ‘ready’ for you at a clear, decisive moment. You can’t control the other person’s schedule (or their willingness) after all.How great and wonderful and empowering singledom is — a prize to be wrenched from your grasp only after a Game of Thrones-esque contest of wills, to figure out everyone’s true motives in the scenario. All the moral quandaries seem centred around whether or not the persons who are ‘just sleeping together’ or ‘just casually seeing each other’ (whatever the hell that means) have any to actually want security or clarity from their partner. People who are truly polyamorous tend to make open, honest communication the founding stone of their relationships, so the sneaky approach tells you 1. And needing exclusivity isn’t something to feel bad about, or ashamed over.
