13 People reveal what it's really like to go through a polyamorous breakup

More and more people in the modern world are considering polyamory, and what's more are being more and more open about their sexuality. According to independent academic Kelly Cookson: "It appears that sexually non-monogamous couples in the United States number in the millions. Estimates based on actually trying sexual non-monogamy are around 1.2 to 2.4 million. An estimate based solely on the agreement to allow satellite lovers is around 9.8 million. These millions include poly couples, swinging couples, gay male couples, and other sexually non-monogamous couples."

But one of the biggest questions monogamous people have for polyamorous people is this: what happens when those relationships end? As you can see from the posts on the social media app Whisper, where people can anonymously share real thoughts and feelings, breaking up with multiple people can lead to some pretty complicated feelings. Scroll down to check out what some of their answers were.
