May 12 Word of the Day
When someone goes to the gym and spends 90% of the time on their phones scrolling through social media
Looks like its thumb day again for Jimmy with his usual routing... 3 sets of 5 snapchat selfies and 10 sets of scrolling through facebook until exhaustion

Your partner's other partners, that you are not romantically or sexually involved with. My girl/boyfriend's other boy/girlfriends.

A partner has several other partners. Each partner of a partner is a metamour. Collectively they are all metamours. Often used in polyamorous communities.
I'm dating F. He also has a partner J and another partner Z. J and Z are my metamours. We practice polyamory.

In a polyamorous relationship, where your lover has more than one lover, a metamour is the name given to your partner's other lover(s).
My partner and I went to see her metamour Jane at the weekend.

Used in polyamorous contexts, a person's lover's other lover. A partner's partner, the person your sweetie is banging, etc. Unlike mistress or paramour, "metamore" connotes that neither relationship is clandestine.
There was a lot of tension in my relationship with Joe, so I had dinner and talked through it with a metamour, Casey. They were able to bring a lot of perspective, and things with Joe really smoothed out. The next week we made an Eiffel Tower.

Now that I'm dating Ludacris, I have metamours in every area code.
