I recently came across a couple of new terms relating to polyamory that I was not previously aware of called poly lag and poly drop.
I suspect that anyone thats ever been involved in any form of polyamorous relationship may have either witnessed or experienced.
Poly lag is best described as the delayed feeling that you get after spending time with a poly partner. Many visitor involve staying up way beyond normal sleeping times and do your best to wring out ever valuable minute together at the expense of rest. Also the later emotion crash resulting from separation and getting back into the normal day to day pattern of life.
Poly drop is even worse, it is the delayed feelings that rises up a while after the visit reality bubble finally bursts. It is then followed by a deep period of self analysis and going back over everything in detail. The result is often the concentration upon a number of small points and building them up into bigger issues as they are over thought. This action is generally subconscious and best described as an emotional reflex action.
During my last complex poly relationship I suspect that all members of the triad tended to suffer these effects following a weekend together. I am glad I can now identify them and work upon management methods when they arise again in the future.
Tel following post was the source and inspiration for mine, thank you for helping me understand.
