This event has passed.

This discussion group explores topics relating to relationship anarchy, polyamory, swinging, consensual non-monogamy, monogamish agreements, and creative and conscious relationship structures. Join the conversation on third Wednesday’s where we will explore the myriad styles of relationships available to those who wish to embrace the power of “and”. 

This month’s topic: Relationship trajectories: map a route or go with the flow?

This month’s moderator(s): Sophia Sky & Kate

We all have expectations, both conscious and unconscious, about how relationships develop and proceed. These expectations can range from general ideas about our own boundaries to very specific ideas about the role a person could play in our lives. When considering relationships outside of monogamy, we often find ourselves challenging common assumptions about how the relationship will develop and progress. What are the benefits of seeking relationships with very specific expectations? What is useful about allowing relationships to grow organically? Let's discuss some of the ways our expectations about relationship trajectories manifest, and what they can mean for all individuals involved.
