And you thought your relationships were complicated! In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Bella Thorne touched on her love of marijuana and loving multiple people at once. She admitted that dating multiple people at once is “a little difficult” but the success of the polyamorous relationship depends on the chemistry between the people involved.
“If you’re gonna date a guy and a girl at the same time, those people have to really fuck with each other. Or literally fuck with each other. You know what I’m saying? It’s like, it really depends on finding the right mesh of two people.”
She continues, “If it works, you can spend a weekend with two people and you’re all hanging out and having fun and smoking, and like, sharing stories up late at night. Kind of having fun acting like children in that way. It’s a really fun experience and I have been able to capture that a couple times, and I just love that idea. I love loving two people at once. I love sharing stories with three people in one room. So, I’m always trying to find ways to make it work because I think it really would make me happy.”
While the actress is currently only dating Benjamin Mascolo at the moment, she’s very clear about her needs.
“A lot of my partners start out like ‘what?’ and I’m like, ‘Bro, this is who I am.’ So, you’re either down or you’re not down and I totally understand if you’re not down. At this point in my life, I want to find what makes me the happiest, and that is the mission I am on. If you don’t want to be on that mission with me, then okay, I totally understand. If it will hurt you too much, then we’re not right for each other at this moment in my life because this is what I’m looking for.”
The idea of polyamory isn’t a new one, but it’s still a taboo subject in our society. While more people are open to it, not a lot get a chance to explore the relationship dynamic and experience it. Bella touched on how the people she dates begin to perceive it differently after she introduces them to the concept.
“A lot of people are actually down and it totally changes their mind. At first they’re like, gasp, ‘How do you even do that?’ And then we talk it through and they’re like, ‘Wow, that actually sounds kind of beautiful.'”
