In an interview, a woman has revealed that she has a three-way marriage with her Tinder match, her college sweetheart, and her best friend.
In June 2018, Tyler Hays, 29, and Angel Bailey, 26, started dating after meeting on Tinder, and Sam Vick, 23, was added to the mix in April of that year. A festival kiss between Vick and Bailey rekindled their college romance, and in May of this year, the two were joined by Hays for a threesome.
The three of them began to develop feelings for one another and decided to form a throuple by getting romantically involved with one another. It took the polyamorous trio two tries to find a lasting relationship after their first threesome, but they couldn’t.
They couldn’t let go of each other, so in April 2021, they decided to try again, and Vick has been invited to move in. It’s May 2022, but Bailey and Hays hope that Sam will be able to join them in the future.
All three of us went to the festival and “just with the music and maybe some amount of alcohol involved Sam and I started kissing,” Bailey, an Arkansas-based banking mortgage warehouse operations specialist, said.
“And Tyler was all, ‘Well, that’s pretty cool,'” I recall thinking. “From there, it just kind of developed.”
In the beginning, it was difficult for us to trust each other because it’s scary to have another person in your life who you can rely on. However, I’ve come to terms with my jealousy and am no longer selfish.”
As the saying goes, “Now they’re going out with us, and we’re going out with them.”
HOW DID IT START?
After Bailey invited Vick to a party, the two girls kissed but kept their relationship platonic throughout college.
“We were both exploring our sexuality at this point and learning we didn’t just like kissing girls when we were drunk,” Vick, an Arkansas bank clerk, explained.
Throughout the course of their relationship, Bailey and Hays had expressed a willingness to try new things. As a group of friends, Bailey, Hays, and Vick attended Hangout Festival in May 2019. To see a different band, the trio dispersed.
As the group returned to the Airbnb, Hays joined in on the sex act with Bailey and Vick, who were intoxicated and rekindling their romance.
“We thought it was a one-time occurrence,” said Hays, a ramp agent from Tennessee. Bailey added, “But we all picked up on the emotions.” ”
The three-way couple hasn’t always had it easy; they tried dating twice in the past two years but couldn’t make it last more than two weeks each time.
I had never dated girls in my life,” Bailey said. As a result, it was difficult to tell the difference between friendship and romantic feelings.
As soon as she wasn’t with me, it felt wrong to me and I missed her like you miss a partner. To join Tyler and me, who had been established for a year, Sam found it difficult.
MAKING IT WORK
It was in April of 2021 that the three decided to give their relationship a real shot. Hays and Bailey had a difficult time balancing their work and personal lives in the beginning, and Vick was difficult for Bailey to see with her boyfriend.
“I thought, ‘Oh, I get two relationships, I get to be with Tyler, and I get to be with Sam, but I never thought of Tyler and Sam together or us as a whole big relationship,'” Bailey explains.
However, I’ve come to terms with my jealousy and am no longer selfish.” We used to avoid going out on dates, but now we all do it.
“While I’m at work, Sam and Tyler are going to the zoo.”
There is a one-hour drive between Vick and Hays and Bailey, which means that he only sees them three days per week. Vick, on the other hand, decided to make the leap and move into the couple’s Memphis, Tennessee, two-bedroom home in April 2022. Their relationship has only lasted a few days at a time but they can’t wait to get back together.
While Tyler is at work, Sam and I will be sleeping in a different room Monday through Friday,” Bailey explained. “The queen-sized bed is rarely shared by all three of us.”
Every time you have a need that a regular couple cannot meet, “someone is always there to fill it.”
They don’t always have sex together in the bedroom; instead, they alternate turns. This is not a lifestyle for everyone, Hays stated. It’s usually just Vick and Tyler or Vick and Angel or Vick and Tyler or Tyler and Angel,” Vick said.
When it’s just two of us, we get together more frequently than when it’s three of us. As Bailey put it, “You have to set boundaries early on and communication is essential. They know we’re in a relationship, but don’t like discussing it. “Our parents know we are in a throuple, but don’t like to talk about it. All our friends know.”
