It is surprising how much confusion using vague language about what we want and about our current relationship brings to others. It's more surprising to me that those who want to change up their relationship form do not seek out the meaningful distinctions that would describe the relationships they are desiring sooner. To allow you to better communicate yourself and what you're seeking, please familiarize yourself with the distinctions used in monogamous and non-monogamous if you are seeking to engage in them.
Choosing terms that convey the characteristics of the exact relationship form you are talking about help people understand you and you understand them. I communicate with people about the relationships I'm interested in using the terms poly M/s or D/s relationship. If you only use one term, or express that one term as the right way to be poly, communication cannot be had and people get upset.
Relationship forms and expressions are not stagnate cultural experiences. They live and breathe with us and people across the globe bring in many different perspectives and expectations. No one should expect to approach another person and have them agree with everything they say and think. There is not one right way to have a consenting relationship, so do not seek to take away another's freedom of choice and expression. I'd like to share with you four relational standards to keep in mind as you describe any relationships with others.
1. Be sure that all people in a relationship being discussed are consenting and legally fit to give that consent.
2. Do not seek to disempower, devalue, or remove another's relational freedom because what they describe is not right for you.
3. Seek to be descriptive and not prescriptive with how you believe relationships should function or develop.
4. The relationship should not be harmful to anyone.
