How a polyamorous Toronto man is managing his four romantic relationships remotely

“Physical distance has been a challenge. I miss the sex, and even more than that I miss the quiet time cuddling and watching a movie. I’m naturally introverted, but I find that spending time with my partners energizes me. I’ve had to rely heavily on video chats and daily phone calls to keep them close. I’m coming up with creative ways to be flirtatious and romantic. If we were together, we’d be able to kiss and hold hands and show our attraction that way, but now I have to be more vocal about what I miss about them. Without turning this into erotica, I can say we’re transparent about our fantasies and desires. It hasn’t been that hard because communication is priority number one in polyamorous relationships. You can’t do polyamory without talking about feelings.”
