Brooklyn residents Tran and Caleb are similar to most couples, except for one small detail — they’re in a loving, open relationship.

After a long subway ride one night, Tran brought up the idea and hoped the suggestion wouldn’t scare her partner away. Instead of viewing this as something negative, Caleb embraced it. Since then, they’ve been exploring the world of polyamory.

Polyamory is defined as “the state of being in love or romantically involved with more than one person at the same time.” It’s not the easiest path to choose; you have to be up for the challenge of being very communicative and open-minded about everything. Tran and Caleb face these obstacles head on — including finding dates, transparency and (the big one) jealousy. They even divulge details of their encounters with other people in their in-depth and educational podcast, “Polychat."

You’ll be surprised to find the infamous world of polyamory isn’t all fun and full of threesomes, but instead focused on friends, community and exploring the great city and beautiful people of New York with a primary partner by your side.

Monogamy isn’t for everyone, and neither is polyamory, but if you decide to venture off into this world with your partner, hopefully Tran and Caleb’s findings and advice can help you throughout the journey.
