"Overseas Man, Or Guy At Home?"
Advice columnists Betty and Eddie, whose "DoubleTake" column appears on TV stations' websites nationwide, toss polyamory onto the table as something to consider for a women with two guy interests.

LifeFiles: Overseas Man, Or Guy At Home?
October 23, 2007
I am a single mom in my late 20s and have been dating a guy on and off for the last three years.... Things really took a turn for a more serious commitment at the beginning of this year. In May, he decided to go work overseas for about a year. Since then, I have been hanging out with a guy that I have known for a while and have really taken a liking to him.
I really like both of these guys for totally different reasons. They both feed parts of me that I need. The guy overseas is coming home soon for a visit, and I don't know what to do about the guy who is here now.
I'm going to throw this out there just for open-mindedness' sake: Is there any reason why you can't date both of these men simultaneously?
From what I've heard, polyamory can be personally fulfilling as long as you do it right. That said, I'm guessing you're more of the monogamous type....
I'm not sure we're talking polyamory here, which implies at least an attempt to make a decision about the philosophy one wants to apply in his or her life. (Or his and his and hers and hers, as the case may be.)...
