In Romantic Relationships, You’re Either a Spark-Chaser or a Long Burner.
Sara Lynn Michener

I really like this article — though wish there was more acknowledgment that it’s not necessarily binary and people can embody both — partnership and openness (or maybe a replacement of ‘monogamists’ with partner-oriented folks). I understand that monogamy and what I would call ‘relationship anarchy’ are pretty opposite, though there is a third way (and really many other ways) where folks have committed long-term partnerships where they are building something larger and are not in the every-2-year in-love cycle, yet also make space (through negotiation, honesty, and fiercely loving integrity with their partner) to explore and find that ‘spark’ with others.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
