When friends Legacy and Kenzie downloaded Bumble BFF to make friends, they never imagined it would change their relationship forever.
The couple, who have been together for three years, moved from Virginia to North Carolina and joined the platform to make new connections.
But Legacy, 26, and Kenzie, 23, soon met 27-year-old Amber, who they described as the “missing piece” of their relationship.
The trio has been living happily together as a couple since the beginning of 2022 – contrary to what the haters say.
Amber (27), Legacy (26) and Kenzie (23) have all been in a relationship together since the beginning of 2022
The couple explained their relationship to curious followers in several videos posted on TikTok
“Yes, we are all dating,” Legacy described their relationship on TikTok. “Not only are they my friends, they’re each other’s friends, it’s a throuple/poly situation.”
The two have explained their relationship to curious followers in several videos. In a clip, they revealed how they all met and started dating.
“Kenzie slid into my Twitter [now X] “DMs,” Legacy explained in a video in response to a question about how they all met.
Legacy and Kenzie had attended the same college but were a few years apart and only met when they started chatting online.
The couple had been together for a while when they considered the idea of opening their relationship to a third partner, which took Kenzie a while to commit to.
“I was a little surprised at first,” Kenzie admitted in a YouTube video from Love don’t judge.
“She had questions,” Legacy added. “Like, is it a lack of something in the relationship?”
“I just never wanted to feel ‘limited’ in the relationship,” she concluded.
Kenzie and Legacy had been together for three years before they decided to start a relationship – and eventually met Amber on Bumble BFF
Although they had no intention of entering into a relationship, they have found that they love their unique situation

When they moved, the couple decided to download Bumble BFF – and initially insisted it was for friendship.
“We were really looking for friends when we met Amber,” Legacy said.
“We literally hung out once and never stopped after that… We developed feelings that we didn’t expect,” Kenzie added.
“To be honest, Amber is really the missing piece of the puzzle,” Legacy gushed.
But the women are committed to dispelling all common misconceptions about being in a group, such as that someone is always left out.
“A common comment is that people say if you have two girlfriends, one of them has to be the second option,” Legacy said.
The happy couple said their families weren’t surprised when they told them they both had two girlfriends, responding to a comment on a TikTok asking what their families thought.
After over a year together, the women are thrilled with their relationship and love having two girlfriends each

“As one of the mothers!!!! “We all knew before they ‘came out,'” the comment reads. “It was like duh!! LOL…they are all great!!!’
“I am Legacy’s mother and as an addition to one of those we already knew,” the other mother wrote. “I was just waiting for Le to come and tell us. ‘Love ’em all!’
The couple added that they “all agree” and also want to have children one day.
The couple’s unique relationship has garnered a lot of support online – but also detractors, who harshly criticized the women for their decisions.
“Aww this is so healthy,” one user gushed. “You are so charming!”
“Oh this is the best relationship I’ve ever seen,” declared another.
Others criticized the women for their unusual relationship.
“Where is GOD in all this?” one user exclaimed. “Sad, just sadness.”
“Ngl. I have a feeling they won’t last. I mean that’s one of them, I just don’t hate it,” wrote another.
