Why do some people choose polyamory? Psychology explains it to us
Polyamory is the choice to have two or more romantic relationships, in a parallel fashion, with the consent of all partners involved.
It is talked about a lot and increasingly as one of the most popular ways of experiencing love in the current generation.
Its main characteristics are honesty, transparency, freedom and a non-judgmental attitude. In short, many people make this choice on the basis of what they feel is right for themselves.
But beware! Do not confuse polyamory with so-called cheating: the decision to have multiple partners is in fact shared by each person, and trust is the basis of this decision.
We explain why many people choose polyamory and reject traditional love.

The need for freedom
No to censorship, yes to freedom. Modern times are a paean to freedom, and one often needs to feel aligned with oneself more than with society.
The new concept of love presupposes experiencing the couple as a space where there is no censorship but only the desire to be oneself and to follow one’s needs and desires.
Thus polyamory is born as a way to feel the best about oneself and each other.
It focuses on self
Polyamory focuses all on the individual and less on the relationship.
The basic concept can be summarized as follows: If you have instincts it is good for you to express them, if you feel attracted to someone else why deny it?
Free self-expression becomes the basis for being able to experience a love – or more – in a peaceful and conscious way.
There is a new mode of relationship
Those who choose polyamory move away from the crowd and choose not to put gender or orientation labels.
It matters little what happens inside the relationship as long as everything is clear and shared among the members.
Even in this type of relationship there can be betrayal and jealousy; they happen precisely when the covenants established together are not respected.
