Wait so is polyamory being in love with multiple people at the same time or wanting a relationship with multiple people at the same time?
A relationship can be polyamorous, which means there are more than two people involved, whether they are all dating each other or connected by people who are dating multiple people.
A person can be polyamorous, which means that they are capable of or desire to be in a relationship with multiple people at the same time. Even if they’re not dating anyone, that person is still polyamorous.
Polyamory can be a state of being/‘relational orientation’/identity, and it can be an active relationship practice. It can be something you are, and/or something you do.
