Bella Thorne has been very open about her relationships as a pansexual over the past few years, and in a new interview with Cosmopolitanthe multihypenate discussed what it's like to be in a polyamorous relationship.   

"If you’re gonna date a guy and a girl at the same time, those people have to really f--- with each other," she explained. "Or literally f--- with each other. You know what I’m saying? It’s like, it really depends on finding the right mesh of two people."   

"If it works, you can spend a weekend with two people and you’re all hanging out and having fun and smoking, and like, sharing stories up late at night," she continued. "Kind of having fun acting like children in that way. It’s a really fun experience and I have been able to capture that a couple times, and I just love that idea. I love loving two people at once. I love sharing stories with three people in one room. So, I’m always trying to find ways to make it work because I think it really would make me happy."   

Throughout 2017 and 2018, Thorne was publicly dating both YouTuber Tana Mongeau and rapper Mod Sun. Bella and Tana parted ways in February 2019, while Mod Sun left the relationship a few months later in April.   

When asked how to bring up wanting a polyamorous relationship, Thorne admitted, "A lot of my partners start out like 'what?' and I’m like, 'Bro, this is who I am.' So, you’re either down or you’re not down and I totally understand if you’re not down. At this point in my life, I want to find what makes me the happiest, and that is the mission I am on. If you don’t want to be on that mission with me, then okay, I totally understand. If it will hurt you too much, then we’re not right for each other at this moment in my life because this is what I’m looking for."  

"A lot of people are actually down and it totally changes their mind. At first they’re like, gasp, 'How do you even do that?'" she continued. "And then we talk it through and they’re like, 'Wow, that actually sounds kind of beautiful.'"
