Do you find yourself anxious and scared when your sweetie is on a date with someone else? Have you hurt a sweetie’s feelings with how you came back to them after a date you were on with someone else? Time to take your multiamorous dating skills to the next level!

So many people in non-monogamous relationships feel like dating can be rough. When a partner is off with someone else, they feel fear, anxiety, jealousy, and insecurity. They try everything they can think of to get past it, but are still struggling. On the other side, some folks come back from a date, high and happy, to find their energy is hard for their sweetie to receive. They inadvertently step on toes and create conflict when they just wanted to share their excitement or disappointment.

In Polyam Dating 201, we’ll cover the skills needed to move more smoothly through your dating life. We’ll look at how to take care of yourself while your partner is on a date with someone else and we’ll examine how you can decompress after a date to return to your sweetie in a way that brings you closer.

Don’t keep beating yourself up for struggling with plural dating, build the skills to help both you and your partners make dating easier on everyone involved!
