So true! Even today- after I had JUST posted this, I was talking about a party I am having at my flat for my one year Berlin-a-versary, and I said “No, it won’t be all poly people, there will be normal people there too!” HA!

I know better, but yet, that is how the words came out of my mouth! My friend was sweet and quick to point out that “normal” just mean the way the “majority of people are” but he agreed, we need to find different words and use them ourselves if we want others to start to see non-monogamy as “normal” too.

Thanks for reading!
