I really hate the word ‘compersion’ it smacks of being a word that isn’t exactly real and thus I hate the word itself. The feeling that it is trying to explain though, I’m so glad that there’s a word for it. I have struggled to explain myself, my feelings when I see my lovers, friends, boyfriends, with other people. Yet this is it, this is why I’m so content within poly itself, because I want all of my friends, lovers, boyfriends to be happy, with or without me but preferably somewhere in front of me-ish. I’m kinda happy that other people feel it too and that someone out there is trying to make up a word for it.

Well, there’s always ‘frubbly’ or ‘frubbles’, if that’s any better? :-p
See ‘having the frubblies’ is actually something I’ve heard someone say, though I’ve never said it myself.
