Gone are the days of traditional heteronormative relationships. Some relationships are monogamous and others are open. A new wave of what has become known as throuples have gay relationships evolving differently from str8 relationships. A relationship involving three guys is known as a throuple relationship. So, if two is a crowd, three is company with the emergence of throuples.
Throuple relationships are no longer uncommon in the gay community. Typically, a throuple relationship forms when a couple decides to open up their relationship, meet another partner, invite the new partner to join their relationship, and then all three have a relationship together: all as equal partners. Some couples enjoy inviting a third party into their relationship circle to keep the sex life and routine fresh and new.
A successful throuple relationship depends on all parties involved fully understanding what they are getting themselves into. Boundaries, interests, and relationship can only truly be established through open and honest communication. Successful throuples talk about everything to ensure an open dialog is always there.
At times, two of the partners may have a stronger bond. Being in a good solid throuple relationship takes a lot of patience, understanding, and compromise. A reality is that each of you should be equally interested in the other to avoid this conflict. As long as there is a mutual chemistry between all parties involved, you can be on your way to a successful throuplage in no time with the desire to be with and be involved with both people at the same time.
Or else things can get highly emotional. A throuple is more than a threesome. If you’re the jealous type, a throuple relationship might not be suitable for you, especially if you feel like you’ll be the third wheel or can get insecure easily. Open communication is key to a successful throuple relationship.
There are many varieties of a throuple relationship. Some are strictly sexually based. Some live together, and some apart. Some throuple relationships have an option to keep a relationship closed, others choose to leave the door open by having/allowing multiple partners together in one relationship, which allows the opportunity to explore sexuality even further.
Before you decide to jump into a throuple, ask yourself if this scenario is right for you. As long as you don’t get jealous and can share your heart with more than one person, there shouldn’t be any problem with being in a relationship with two men at once. Just listen to your heart: it will let you know when three becomes a crowd.
