You know that your poly if you aren't sure if your girlfriend's work schedule magically coordinating with your other girlfriend's free time was luck or tricky planning.

Either way, we're all smiling.

So, I suppose you know that you're poly when you are going to the post office to mail a package to your wife's (ldr) boyfriend because he left a stack of paperwork behind in their motel room. Al

A cute moment I had last week was when our boyfriend stayed overnight (gf and I are roommates). My bed is the biggest (full size) so we fell asleep together. Gf often gets up in the middle of the night to sleep in her own bed because she’s a hot sleeper and cramming into a full size bed with two other people and a dog (spoiled little thing) is a bit much.

Anyway, so when I woke up I was cuddling with the bf, and I got up to take the dog out and then went back to bed to cuddle some more cuz it had been a late night for all of us. He got up to go to work shortly after I fell asleep again, and the second time I woke up my gf had joined me so I got to cuddle with her a bit. Fell asleep again, she got up to get ready for work (my lazy ass had the day off) and the third time I woke up my dog had wiggled his way up next to me to take her spot so I was greeted with his adorable face and got to have some puppy cuddle time.

So yeah, each time I woke up that morning was next to someone different lol. I just thought it was really cute.

You may know you're poly when -

You have one text stream going with your wife, consoling her because her boyfriend had to cancel their date last night (especially since she was spending the night in his town on business) - and promising to be available for her when she flies back in tonight.

And another text stream going with your ldr girlfriend, sharing her excitement about seeing her (local) romantic interest later in the day.

Or the inverse when the hinge calls out the universal pet name, and no one looks up because everyone assumes he is talking to the other person.

I love this thread. This is still very new to us as a couple, and we keep running across these moments constantly. Some of my "you know you are poly when" moments in the last month have been:

-Showing my wife the best secluded places to park near her workplace, knowing she was not planning on parking there with me.

-My wife asking me if I could run home on my lunch break and bring her back her favorite clitoral stimulating gel, because she had a date immediately after work. (And trying to find something non-descript but plausible to hide said gel in so I could deliver it without her coworkers asking questions).

Of course, this works both directions. And while not directly polyamorous, we were at a party with a group of very free spirited polyamorous friends. Apparently my wife extolled my skill at cunnilingus to an attractive young lady and the next thing I knew I was taken by the hand and led off while my wife laughed and made shooing motions. Best wingman ever.

You spend the afternoon making fancy chili (beef short rib AND chorizo! toasted whole chili peppers!) that you don't even plan on eating until the next day because your partner is having his other partner stay over while you go out (and handling childcare for the evening).

Bonus: I get extra-tasty leftover chili without having to eat the same thing 2 days in a row. (Next day chili tastes better, I dislike leftovers. It's a conundrum.)

You know you may be poly when -- while relaxing with your wife on the couch, discussing her plans to see her ldr bf next week, your ldr girlfriend texts you that she and her husband are busy preparing an after Thanksgiving dinner for a group of friends - and she is excited because her local male love interest and her local female love interest are both planning on being there.

Default The Slut Word

During a recent moment, my wife laughed and told me that she never thought that she would be such a slut - because she just loved that she got to (openly) fuck two different men, and even occasionally on the same day. I just smiled and said "well, you know - they say that poly-girls wear the slut title with pride".

Of course, in "The Ethical Slut", the authors reclaim the word "slut" and make it a title to be proud of. Anyone here ever given the reclaiming of the word any thought? Al
