Disclosure advice on the topic of Other High Impact Relationships

If your polyamorous, have casual romantic relationship with someone, or an old lover who you wish to continue to be involved with it is quite important that you disclose this early. It is also important to indicate non-romantic significant relationship you have which might seriously impact this new relationship – a child you actively parent from a previous relationship, an ailing parent who you care for, or close friend(s) with whom you spend most of your free time.

There is often a temptation to diminish the commitments to other relationships when courting a new one for fear that these other commitments will be seen as threatening to your prospective new intimate. This is all the more reason to encourage questions from your possible partner and deep self reflection in revealing what is true about your existing commitments and how these might influence your availability, energy, and attention for a new relationship.
