Open relationships: the people making it work →
Great article from The Guardian about polyamory (polyamoury? hehe) in the UK.
¡Hola amigos! Apologies for the radio silence on our end. As usual, we got caught up in that rough and tumble thing called life for a bit. We guess this means a few updates: Celia has been on a number of dates through OkCupid but other than coffee, dancing, and an awkward trip to a sex shop, nothing has really come of them. Xun, to date, hasn’t been on any “dates” outside the...
I hope I can give you as much support as you need and you can do the same for...– From the awesome (and amazing!) Celia
An OkCupid Encounter
Xun and I both maintain active OkCupid accounts. I personally don’t take it very seriously and am not interested in meeting people in person unless we’ve had a decent amount of online correspondence beforehand. A few weeks or so ago, a fellow named Jamal started messaging me. As per usual, I didn’t take it very seriously at first. He seemed a little too forward for someone...
OkCupid For the Polyamorous →
polyhips: Excellent blog article about dating poly on OkCupid This really is a great article about OkCupid for poly folks. Xun and I both have accounts and I might be mildly addicted. :-P We’re an 87% match! ~Celia
Xun here. As I stated in my introductory post, I was introduced to the idea of nonmonogamy by Celia. Before that, I was by all accounts monogamous. My last two relationships had been monogamous and I was fully expecting the rest of my relationships to be as well. Even now, I would say that I am more on the side of monogamy than nonmonogamy (I hope that will change over time). So why am I even...
Even sticking to the higher plane of love, is it so very obvious that you can’t...– Richard Dawkins (via thehumorlessfeminist)
You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love...– Bob Marley
Hello, my name is (not really) Celia.
Nice to meet you, reader! I am the female half of B-more Lovin’. I’m a college senior graduating in May. Nothing is set in stone yet for what I’m doing with my biology degree after that (scary). I’m originally from the South but moved to the Baltimore area for college. I love social dancing, which is an interest I share with my boyfriend Xun (hence, our avatar). I also...
Anyway, make one if you’d like. At least with big things like interviews...– Xun, on the topic of Google Calendars
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Xun (迅). I chose this pseudonym after one of my fav Chinese authors, Lu Xun (鲁迅). He’s best known for his short stories and novellas, especially “The True Story of Ah Q.” ANYWAY I’m a 20something web developer working about an hour away from my home in the Baltimore area. I moved back to the area after college,...
GREAT piece on open marriage... →
Definitely worth reading. ~ C + X
Who are we?
We’d like to take a moment to introduce you, dear reader, to your hosts and to this Tumblog. Our names are Celia and Xun. For anonymity’s sake, these are pseudonyms. We are two 20-something folks living in the Baltimore area who have recently embarked on the journey of polyamory. We met about four months ago and became a couple three months ago. One of us is a college student...
