I am Polyamorous and in an open relationship. I really care about him, but I feel as if I express that I am poly, out relationship my suffer. Our relationship already isn’t in the best condition, since he used to be with other people before we became open, and he no longer seems to care about me. He constantly avoids me and doesn’t talk to me. I don’t know what to do. Any advice?
Let’s break this down:
-You feel that your relationship will suffer if you try to talk to your partner about something important
-Your relationship “isn’t in the best condition”
-Your partner “no longer seems to care” about you
-Your partner “constantly avoids” you
-Your partner “doesn’t talk to you”
My advice: leave this relationship. You can really care about someone and not be able to have a healthy relationship with them. This isn’t about being polyamorous vs being open; this is about a relationship that simply isn’t working.
