Solo Polyamory

The polyamory community is as diverse as any other.  For every couple that is opening from a monogamous orientation, there are individuals who have never chosen monogamy in the first place.  And individuals who identify as polyamorous but do not define themselves as part of a couple (or triad, etc).  Solo polyamorists generally do not have intimate relationships which involve a merging of life infrastructure and a traditional relationship escalator (sharing a home or finances). Whether you choose solo polyamory or simply happen to be effectively solo and not in a relationship at the moment, the questions that come up in this relationship structure may be more about preferences around hierarchy, amenability to dating non-polyamorous people, couples' privilege and relationship anarchy.
