Any polyamorous dreadies?


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I really think the success of the relationship depends on the love and commitment between the partners. There may be a jealousy issue from time to time. I'm only married to one person and he gets jealous sometimes. But if they really love each other, I think they can work through it. And about choosing who to spend time with, from what I saw on the show I mentioned, they are all a family and do these things together. If you were graduating and your sister was in a car accident, you probably would skip out on the ceremony, right? Same with your sister wife or girlfriend/wife. What I'm talking about is a family, nit a group of people ONLY interested in sex. And there is a relationship where women have multiple husbands, it's called polyandry. I don't see it a lot, but I don't think I know any guys who would be willing to do it. Most guys have too much trust and jealousy problems to handle that well. That's not to say all men are like that, I'm sure there are plenty of them. I watched an interview with a woman and her 2 husbands that was really interesting. The wife and one husband worked and the other husband stayed home with their son. They also said they didn't want to know who the father of the little boy was so that they would both be equal fathers.

Are we just talking about sexual relationships here? I think it's posible to have a deep emotional connection with several people at the same time, which you could call being in love with all of them (maybe in completely different ways). But I've never been in a sexual relationship with more than 1 person at a time. Wouldn't conflict come of it, because at some point several of the partners will want or need attention at the same time? What if a man has one partner having a baby, and it's the other's graduation day? What if one has a car crash and is in hospital, when he's meant to be doing something with one of the others? Who does he choose to be with? There will always be a favourite.

It may work in other cultures, but they have very different roles for men and women to the standard in USA and Europe, that have been accepted for many generations. It may have started in relation to maximising the birth rate in a dangerous environment, where many people and children die? Or perhaps rich and powerful people cementing their advantage by having many children? Being raised with a western mindset it would be a hard shift to truly accept a polygamous situation, wouldn't it?

You don't really hear about multiple husbands for each wife, do you? Most people would equate systems like this with oppression of women, seeing it from a western viewpoint.

Not saying I think it's wrong in itself, if everyone if freely accepting of the situation. But surely it will get torn apart by jealousy in the end?

It might for some people. I'm not really sure because I'm just learning about the poly communtiy. However I specifically am trying to learn about committed, serious relationships.

What about a real life relationship and a online relationship? Would this count?

Wow, It's not cool without consent in my opinion. Everyone wants something different and that's ok, as in if some couple wants to add another woman to their relationship. But if one person wants it and the other doesn't, then you go and cheat? I've heard of some guys doing that and saying it was ok cuz he's a polygamist, but his wife/girlfriend should be polygamist too or else he's just a cheater. I'm interested in learning about the family aspect, like that show Sister Wives. I just don't want to do my research on random TV shows I find on Netflix, you know what I mean? I just thought it would be cool if I found actual people living this lifestyle and asked questions. Apparently that leads some people to tell me that I have a warped mind and need help. But whatever. I'm always learning about other people and cultures and religions and I hope I never stop learning. Thanks for the input, you guys :)

Are you in a polygamist relationship now or have you been in the past? I was wondering are you for the women being in a relationship with each other as well, or each of them just with the same man?

Mike Gentry said:

I am for polygamy, polyamory not so much, because that is a much harder connection. And in our sex crazed world that line would be crossed with swingers more so than true relationships. I have no problem with it and support it, as long as it is a committed relationship. The basic idea is not to just have many but having care for others and being able to sustain a bigger family, and to lower the risk of divorce. I'm not all about the threesome idea as my reason to support polygamy, I just know that I find different women engaging, not just sexually, it is about being a more complete person

Just curious if anyone is polyamorous or polygamous? I'm not talking about you talked your girlfriend into having a threesome for your birthday, I mean real relationships or at least wanting one. I've been curious about it, but don't know any.

All my dreads are hidden!


Dread Maintenance

I usually sleep on my sides or belly. And I can't really keep from touching it because I have to put it up for work. I usually wear a head band or bandana, could that keep the sides from progressing?

Dread Maintenance

I've made some great progress and I have 5 dreads now, but you can't see any of them! They're all in the back and hidden in my loose hair. The sides aren't dreading at all it seems like. Am I possibly doing something to prevent it dreading? Or maybe there is something I can do to help it along?

any primal dreadies?


Dreads and Diets

I'm paleo/primal. "High protein, low carb" kinda oversimplifies it.http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/#axzz2PQVKFyet

Medical Dreadies?


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Yeah, I've hurt myself several times in nursing. I'm still recovering from a wrist injury right now. Just be careful and use good body mechanics. It doesn't hurt to be in shape. I also read that to be a firefighter I'd have to have a hairstyle that "tapered to the shape of the head" to fit the helmet. Luckily that line of work doesn't interest me in the least :) I think I'll just find some unobtrusive hats to wear and if anyone says anything just tell'em to shove it lol. What else can I do? My dreads are for life.

said:

You should be fine. Sometimes the dreads will help you connect to otherwise unruly patients and I'm sure sometimes they may put off pts.

I had a polysubstance intox pt the other day who gave night shift HELL. The first thing she said to me was that she liked my dreads. We hit it off from there. I like to think she opened up because she saw I was "different" buuuut lol I'm sure it had more to do with her sobering up. Who knows? But many patients are intrigued by them and it gives them a way to relax and just converse.

I second what Baba said though. I'm pretty sure if you have to wear a mask for your job, you will be required to brush them out. When safety is at stake you have to do what you have to do, you know? If you're just doing EMS then I bet you'll be ok but I would guess dreads are out of the question for police/firefighters who have to don gas masks/protective masks. You might look into that.

Best wishes on your EMT classes! I almost got my first responder and was considering becoming a paramedic but the thought of throwing my back scared me... so now I'm pursuing nursing... Another career path with one the highest amount of back injuries... Lol, whatever!

No matter what though, you've picked an awesome field!
