Tomorrow on Bilerico: "Third man in"

You will have to go to Bilerico tomorrow to see my response to the following (first of a series from one man on a particular subject):

Have you ever seen a 3way relationship work? Really? We tried it once and it didn't go so hot because he was more into Fred (my partner) than me. This time I was the instigator, but he seems to like Fred just as much as me and Fred feels good about it.

Thoughts?

Never cared for three-ways much.
Tried it a handful of times.
A bad three-way contributed to the end of a relationship I was in.
Just my 2 cents.

Doesn't the answer depend on how one defines "work"? If he means to ask whether I have ever known a thruple to be happy and energized by their arrangement, I'd say yes. If however he is asking whether I've known a thruple to stay together in their existing arrangement for longer than several months, I would have to say no. In fact, a retrospective analysis of all the thruples I have known, each and all of them have ended with one of the original couple choosing the new suitor over the old. It makes me wonder whether Thrupleville isn't just a rest stop on the way to Gettinganewboyfriendtown.

I sound like Doubting Thomas.
