February Umbrella Munch - "Relationship styles"

So for this year's first meetup, I'd like to have a discussion regarding "Relationship Styles". We'll hopefully touch on different aspects of how we do relationships within non-monogamy and kink circles, and also how we negotiate and manage our expectations when we're in relationships with people who might not have a matching approach to relationship.

So come prepared with having thought about how you generally construct your relationships (mainly romantic and/or sexual ones) and why you prefer to do it that way (is it because it protect your needs? or your world view? etc.).

As per usual, the discussion will run for the first 2 hours and will then turn into a social much.

Looking forward to seeing you there!


The umbrella munch aims to create a safer space in which we can safely disclose things about ourselves and share our experiences and our points of view. Thus, sexism, biphobia, homophobia, transphobia, racism and other forms of oppression are not tolerated. We also ask everyone not to gossip about what other people disclose in our space, as well as respecting the fact that this is not a place for cruising.

    So tomorrow's topic is "Relationship Styles", and the way I'd define that is the different ways we construct and/or conduct our relationships, although it would be interesting to have that definition challenged. Just to give a bit more life to the meetup, I figured that I'd post a few question for everyone to think about beforehand:

    1: What is a 'relationship style' and what does it consist of?
    2: What different relationship styles are out there? (formalised or not)
    3: Do we idealise some styles over others, and if so, why?

    I am looking forward to this. :) I myself am in a happy, monogamous relationship. I think I would struggle to be poly, but I wish to explore why this is and perhaps learn to overcome it. I'd like to give my partner more sexual and personal freedom within our relationship, instead of feeling paranoid at the mere thought of him being with another woman in a romantic context. I think in relationships it's important to empower your partner (or several partners if you're poly), not control or restrict them. I would never actively do those things, but I think that emotionally I perhaps do so subconsciously, or that monogamy itself has the potential to hold back someone I truly love.

      Apologies for rambling. In short, I am excited about meeting people from different backgrounds with varying approaches to relationships. I hope we can all learn something from one another :)x
