Why dating a unicorn
These are so common that people who have seen this play out before will often have a strong, negative reaction to your initial introduction before you have shared any details. My goal with this article is to lay out why these people had the reaction they did, why it was so strong (!), and what you can do to get what you want without creating dysfunctional relationships and hurting people.It is critical to have a conversation with prospective partners, before there is a relationship, where you discuss how “out” you are wiling to be.
It really does take some education, some communication, and a lot of forethought to get this one right.You posted that you and your partner are ready to open up your relationship and find a special person to add to it. One thing that many of them said was that you are a “Unicorn Hunter”.For some reason, a ton of people seemed upset at your post and started replying with a bunch of hostile, snarky comments that didn’t describe you at all. Not knowing what they meant, you asked your good friend Google what a “Unicorn Hunter” was, and you figured that out. Why did all of these people have such a major stick up their butt? The fact that you are here, reading this, implies that you care.First, many but not all situations where people are given the title of “Unicorn Hunter” follow one very specific model.Here are the archetypal “Unicorn Hunters.” The Unicorn Hunters are a male/female couple, the female partner is bisexual while the male partner is heterosexual (mostly), and they are looking to have a woman start dating them together.
