Told my Mom today that my wife and I decided to have an open/polyam relationship. She took it pretty well. Asked a bunch of questions and was happy when I said I’d send her a book to read on what polyamory is all about. She definitely wants to be supportive of our decision, but it’s a lot for her very-Catholic brain to process.
In the last couple of weeks I’ve realized just how emotionally unavailable I’ve been for the last couple years. Today I was talking to my wife about it and she told me that it started back a lot further back than I realized. I want to shut down emotionally (because that’s how I roll), but I’m making myself feel the discomfort and it sucks.
