You know you're poly when you're job hunting and having to consider family time off AND time off for an out of town partner to visit regularly.

Scheduling sucks. Lol

You know you're poly when your wife just forwards you the texts from her boyfriend - just like she would from any other family member on those occasions when it is the quickest way to pass on the message.

Okay, here's one my friend Barb told me, like 1990.

She's happy being mostly just nonmonogamous, with various boyfriends scattered about. Her big brother, Dave, & his wife Beth had been "monogamish" for years (a moderately open marriage, basically), but had latched onto the new term "polyamory" & maybe gone a little overboard. (This tale might also explain why I kinda roll my eyes at "daisy chain" networks.)

Barb said she showed up solo at her parents' house for Thanksgiving dinner, & soon enough watched as Dave & Beth arrived... with Beth's boyfriend & his girlfriend... & Dave's girlfriend & her boyfriend.

Mom was a bit dismayed, as she'd basically planned everything for 6 +/- 1.

Dave got huffy -- you know, the Oldsters oppressing his enlightened radicalism. "Well, Barb brings her boyfriends here!!"

"Yes, dear," said Mom, unperturbed, "but not all at once."

You know you're poly when. . .

Your response when your nesting partner tells you that her new play partner is coming over is to say, "Chocolate is an important part of aftercare, and please take the dog out when you're done."

You're totally cool with said play partner meeting your roommates.

You know you're poly when...
You're laying in bed chatting with your person in Canada, your husband is laying next to you listening to OK Conputer using his fancy noise cancelling headphones.
You have to interrupt him because the story Canada just told you is too good not to share and you all three wind up laughing your asses off together.

So FWIW, I just read through this thread with my wife and it's a great way to talk about th idea of polyamory in a lighthearted manner - funny, sweet, sometimes surprising pictures of different kinds of "normal." Just the kind of thing I've been looking for. <3

I am going to take this time to make a bad joke.

You know you're poly when, you want a cracker.

A little Ornithology humor for you ( =

LOL!

You know you're poly when your calendar (electronic or paper) is your BFF.

You know you're poly when - you "like" your wife's Facebook post that is actually a covert reference to the great time that she had with her boyfriend last week.
