A Competitive Relationship is a form of polyamory, specifically a form of hierarchal polyamory, in which the 'importance and status' of each partner comes from monthly competitions. These competitions may vary, from sports to video games, but it’s all in good fun. There are, of course, three 'places' one may win: primary, secondary, and tertiary.
The primary winners get to make the top decisions and have top importance for the month. The secondary winners get to make secondary choices, and are given the second most attention, while the tertiary group gets little decision during the month. These decisions can vary from vacations and trips, resturaunts and dates, and so on, depending on the relationship dynamic and hobbies. Like in all relationships, consent and communication is vital for this to be a healthy relationship type.
The term competitive relationship was first referenced as a joke by FANDOM user CryingAt4am on December 16th, 2020 on the casual relationship page. They stated "this implies competitive relationships exist." After several weeks of pondering, fandom user Cryptocrew decided to coin it into an actual term on December 27th, 2020.
The competitive relationship flag was created by FANDOM user Artemis, a headmate of Cryptocrew's system, on December 27th, 2020. The three hearts on the three pedestals represents the three groups of competition; Dark pink represents love; Mid-pink represents playfullness; Light pink represents trust and consent; Red represents decisions and importance; Blue represents fun and love; Green represents respect for others and their decisions; The gold represents uniqueness and special bonds; The spotlight represents winning and gaining '1st place' for the month.
