Polyamory isn't something one sees normalized.

TV and film are littered with couples, mostly heterosexual, and all of the narratives we are fed about healthy relationships (or even unhealthy relationships) generally don't involve more than two people.


Which is why it was really unexpected for a throuple (meaning: three people in a relationship together) to show up on HGTV's House Hunters on a February 12th episode.

Brian, Lori and Geli were shopping for a house in Colorado to fit two kids, enough garage space for three people, and a bathroom with three sinks.

Brian and Lori were already married before they met Geli, and have since both exchanged vows with her.




Even houses are laid out for couples, as the threesome found out during their search for a house.





Considering how rare it is to see any sort of representation of real-life polyamory on television, the responses were incredibly positive.





The throuple ultimately did end up settling on a house.

Will there be more polyamorous representation on TV in this new decade? Who knows, but at least society is beginning to recognize relationships between consenting adults can take many forms.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.

After Redditor XYZ3110 asked the online community, "What's the creepiest thing an ex has done?" people shared their stories.
