14 People Confess What It's Really Like Going Through Polyamorous Breakups

From the outside, it seems like polyamorous relationships are a trip! We found the best confessions from poly people on Whisper, and boy oh boy, does it sound complicated. These people confess the emotional turmoil, fallout, and overriding pain that can come of closing one door, while still loving another person who was a part of the relationship. We had no idea how emotionally complex it all is. Makes us think maybe our lives aren't that complicated after all.
