Long Distance Relationships in Polyamory: A Webcast
Did you miss this Global Live Event on the topic: Long Distance Relationships in Polyamory? Poly Pages is now offering a digital download of the 90 minute event.
Long distance relationships give us challenges, benefits and opportunities that traditional geographically close relationships may not. At distance, individuals learn a new way to love - without the physical or day to day. A chance to rework our expectations, agreements and narratives around relationships. As such, polyamory has a lot to teach those who are in LDRs, and can be introduced as a coping mechanism for distance. So how can you make that transition easier? When is this the right decision? How can you approach long distance and polyamory from a place of love?
