“Non-monogamy and the Romantic idea of love” Workshop/Discussion

Fri./Vri. May 17th 2013: Workshop/Discussion, 18:30 pm

Non-monogamy is ok. We are all young…or we all were young at some point. We know what it’s like. But there will come a day when you will find a nice person who will be just right for you. And then you will not desire anything or anyone else. And you’ll be able to settle down and live happily every after – monogamously! And if you are still having non-monogamous thoughts, that may be because you haven’t found the right person yet. But do not worry. One day, you will find “the one.”

Are we being socialized to believe in unrealistic ideas of love and relationships? Or are those romantic ideas realistic, but just don’t fit us all? Does ethical non-monogamy really work in the long run? Can we escape the romantic ideas of love and embrace alternative relationship forms? Can non-monogamy provide promises of feeling unique and of being in loving reciprocal confident relationships? Can non-monogamy keep these promises? To explore these questions and many more, join us for an informal discussion and a cup of tea.

The discussion takes place in Joe’s Garage, on Friday, 17th of Maybetween 18:30 and 21:00. If you intend on attending the workshop, drop me a line by email.
