    how is life wash

    It's good. Things have been a little stressful health-wise, but that's clearing up. Been thinking about going to B.C. for the summer to work to pay off my debt and get some private writing time in. And my short film is shaping up; I think I'm the only director who's been consistently content with my production, and based on my test screening, I managed to get the laughs I was aiming for. I'm working on a feature script right now, which has a very slight possibility of being made (I'll know by the end of April) and I'm supposed to be co-writing a webseries, but that's kind of up in the air right now.

    How is you?

    That's cool, glad to hear about your successes in filming :D

    I'm doing pretty well. Still working the marketing job, making good money, slowly whittling down debt and living with Aaron. We're probably just going to elope this summer or something. Been struggling with massive depression and suicidal thoughts since November and am getting my meds adjusted now so hopefully that helps. Despite that I'm pretty successful and am doing a lot of art in my free time.

    I'm happy to hear that! Not the depression part - I hope the adjustment helps - but I'm glad you're working on your art and working off your debt. I've thought about Oathkeeper a few times since you answered my vagina questions earlier this week, I think it's really fucking cool you're working on a webcomic, and at some point this week I'm probably going to read through all of it.

    Do you mind if I ask what work you're planning to do in BC?

    A friend of mine suggested we both look for work at like a ski resort or lodge to do maintenance work over the summer. Alternatively, another friend of mine went out west to do this tree planting thing, where you're paid by the tree. It'd help me get in shape and I'd get to meet a lot of interesting people.

    We used to have pebbles I think. And we've still got Lucky Charms, Sugar Crisp, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Fruit Loops, Corn Pops and Frosted Flakes. And if you want cocoa in your cereal just buy chocolate cheerios or rice crispies. That or use chocolate milk instead of white milk. :P

    I'm personally a little distrustful of poly because many poly folk I've met have had some really bad relationships and breakups (lol anecdotal evidence I know)

    which is true of single people as well!

    but in general I think most people have difficulty handling the emotional baggage a single relationship entails and basically there's a Venn diagram of "people who think poly is a good idea" and "people who are capable of managing the pitfalls of a poly relationship successfully" and the crossover of those two circles is kinda small

    but I don't think there's anything immoral or unethical or specifically wrong about poly, and for some people it works really well, which is great

    I just think its more difficult than a monogamous relationship and there are more people who think they can handle poly then there are people who can handle poly.

    It probably is more difficult - so what? An interracial relationship is more difficult than having a relationship with someone of the same race and you don't distrust interracial couplings.

    That's true I suppose, although I'm not sure they're directly comparable for lots of underlying cultural reasons.

    Polyamory is not necessary polygamy, and marriage need not entail exclusivity for the male or female members. Ergo, the only excess males are those in the friendzone.

    I don't think that's sustainable either! I think norms will merely shift in an illiberal direction until the marriage market equilibrium - or, if you prefer, the amorous relationship equilibrium - is achieved again

    What are you saying? Your original post seemed to describe that as marriages occupied available women at a faster rate than men, there would be a surplus of available men. My response is that a married woman can still bang other dudes even if the only marriages were one-man-many-women instead of mixed or opposite ratios.

    well, as you yourself pointed out, polyamory is not the same as polygamy. Fine. one-man-many-women relationships would still be problematic to balance.

    I myself have advocated the idea that STD epidemiology data do not suggest that the conventional :biotruths: idea that aggressive young men cultivate a harem of women at their most fertile and only surrender them to "betas" once they're old and less desirable, but then there are still strong social pressures against maintaining multiple concurrent sexual partners.

    You're assuming a need to balance where none exists, and the social pressures have little to do with the workability of such relationships among individuals who don't ascribe to them.

    Imagine I am in a relationship with Jane, Cindy, and Sara. You're assuming that somewhere, there are two dudes who have to be single because I am one man 'taking up' three women. But there is nothing stopping any of these women necessarily from being with either of those dudes in addition to the relationship that they are already in with me.

    Unless you're talking about tax benefits for actual, legal marriage or something?

    I suspect that TL DR did not get your post because this was assumed by him.

    making the reasonable assumption that male:female ratios will remain roughly balanced, that requires that women have the same number of male partners in total as men have female partners in total, so a predominance of polygynous relationships precludes there being sufficiently many spaces for polygynous men. there would have to excess males in the friendzone, as he points out

    I had a friend who wanted a poly relationship where it would be her, a girlfriend and a boyfriend and all of them living in the same house together. Interesting concept but not sure if it would have worked for me. Still, if all parties involved felt comfortable with it all the power to them.
