I've started noticing a major trend, not just in my friend groups but online dating apps, Facebook, Instagram, even on sex communities like FetLife. More and more people are either opening up their relationships or even going as far as stating "Polyamorous." It's even been brought up in shows like Locke and Key. The more people I talk to the more I hear differing answers about what exactly Poly is. Granted, I believe each relationship is bound to have their own boundaries and rules as guidelines. But I have to wonder, why such a large shift? And it's there really a base guideline or rule set that it builds off of, or are people misusing/overusing the term?
