Are you mundanely monogamous? Humdrum-ish or not, if you’re only seeing one person, you’re a few steps south of old fashioned. In order to catch up to the culture, you might want to speed right past throuplehood and embrace the modern paradigm of the “polycule.”

From Bustle.com:

A portmanteau of “polyamory” and “molecule,” polycule refers to a connected network of non-monogamous relationships. This could be as small and simple as a vee relationship (aka a relationship involving three people, where one person is at the center of the V and is involved with both partners, while the other two partners who are not involved with each other), or it can be a complex, widespread network of people, all connected in some manner. Component parts of a polycule are sometimes referred to as “molecules.”

Such an atomically-oriented association was recently highlighted by Libs of TikTok. Via a provocative video, participant “Savvy” reviews her romantic roster:

“This is our polycule. … Me and Kyle have been together for eight years; we’ve been poly the whole time. … Me and Kyle are in a triad with Kit. We have been together, the three of us, for three years. … Me and Sam and Kit and Katie met around the same time. I started dating Sam — and Kit started dating Katie — around the same time. … And then…a little over a month ago, we moved everyone in together. So everyone lives in the same house now.”
