JEALOUSY FOCUS GROUP

In the presentation, we'll be looking at and talking about jealousy from a "big picture" perspective that involves its general definition, how jealousy affects polyamorous relationships and the differences between mono and poly perspectives on jealousy. Eventually, we'll work our way down to jealousy on the micro level of individual human emotional reactions and how to process and communicate those reactions in productive and healthy ways.

Open discussion, ideas and shared experiences are welcome after the presentation and we can all talk together about the ways jealousy affects in our lives and relationships.

Facilitator: Evelyn (Fayerweather Douglas)

    I loved Fayerweather's presentation. She has a unique and thoughtful style in which she tackles deep and controversial issues, often with wisdom, accompanied by candor and sprinklings of humor. Great job!

    Dear Eileen and Fayerweather
    What Jealousy issues are you, there social inner game issues for me, at this meeting I figured out that the poly community has my back and cares about my social progress, that my own autism community gave me the basic social information and let me due the rest and let me go. You guys are giving me the most important piece of the puzzle that I need to succeed in the social world. The professionals are missing the boat and abandoning me mid ship, so I thank for the backing and caring and giving the support I need

    Fayerweather did a great job in organizing the information and presenting it. I found it very helpful to better understand how to deal with jealousy and envy. The room was comfortable to me but I was on the opposite side near the windows.

      Faye, I agree the room was chilly. I'll find out if we can have control of the AC there. If not, then yes, tea and hot cocoa may be a nice solution.

      Very well done. It would be worth paying $20 for something like that or more!

    I'm 90% sure I'm coming. I've invited my husband. I'll add him to the RSVP if he decides to come. I haven't been to any event before. Princeton is easier than Lambertville for me.

  • X. Perry M.

    I don't see this event on the Princeton Public Library events calendar. Is it held in one of the private conference rooms? Is there anything that identifies it as a meeting about polyamory? I'm very interested, but discretion is very important to me.

    • Marton

      I registered it in the library as a private Meetup group event without any further specification. Yes, we use a private conference room.

    Looking forward to this. Thanks for putting it on.

    Jealousy is a concern for every polyamorist. Even those who don't experience much jealousy will likely have partners who do. It's important to understand this emotion and how examining it closely helps us cope and grow.
