    Polyandry TV Show on TLC

    Sharing for visibility. TLC is airing a new reality series (yeah, I know, define 'reality') which covers polyandry. Here is the trailer https://www.tvinsider.com/1076063/seeking-brother-husband-tlc-trailer-video/ At the :36 and :40 marks really hit home for me. I might watch and see how...

    Mentoring and Dating ENM Folks

    Jane: In this case, it would be an informal arrangement, vs a formal agreed upon interaction. And thanks for parsing out the actual mentor-ship from the ulterior motives of said mentor. Not sure if you were actually requesting a response from me, but thought I would fill in the blanks and hope...

    Mentoring and Dating ENM Folks

    Thank you Kevin, GG and Evie, I appreciate the feedback. GG: Or on the other side of the coin, the person meets a noob who could be a potential partner and then decides to be the mentor. Not only getting romantically involved with the 'student' but deciding they might need help practicing...

    Mentoring and Dating ENM Folks

    This is me working on not assuming anything by asking questions. I have seen a few posts online on a few social media sites about people mentoring and dating the same ENM folks. In other words, they are mentoring the same people they are dating in ENM/polyam. From those posts, I gather that...

    Irony Is Dead

    Hooo, boy! Lots to update. First, I now have a love interest (that cabin trip back in March turned out to be a lot more than I hoped for lol). Rock The Vote (RTV, formerly known as Gerry) and I met during the cabin trip. He has a partner and they are practicing ENM. At the time, I thought he...

    Irony Is Dead

    DAG is home now. After 3 months of being on the opposite coast, taking care of his family business, he came home two days ago. I have been anxious about his return, as within those 3 months, I have settled in to my own routine. Now I have a good idea of what military spouses go through when...

    It seems someone thought 'unicorn' was too soft, so they had to butch it up. lol

    Glossary and Definitions

    I heard a new one today: Dragon In a brief google search, evidently it applies to a bi-sexual male, for which an established couple is looking. Does anyone have any additional information on the definition of a dragon?

    Irony Is Dead

    An apology. All it took was an apology. And it made all the difference in the world. DAG has been with his mother in another state for almost 2 months. I traveled to see him and stayed with him for a week. It's been tough, but we've been doing very well with communicating with texts, phone...

    Irony Is Dead

    So I had a dinner date with Gerry, a new friend I connected with during Teach's cabin trip. He and I have been texting fairly regularly, just to keep in touch. He happened to be in town for 24 hours starting Monday, so I met him for dinner. He and his partner are practicing polyam and we've...

    Irony Is Dead

    So DAG and I are dealing with a family situation with his mom. She is in the hospital and he is with her to ensure she is taken care of and handling her financials while she is in the hospital. I am flying out later next week to be with him, help out and be his support system. He has been away...

    Recovery from toxic metamour: advice to keep relationship going?

    This sounds vaguely familiar. If only I could think of who else had issues with establishing strong boundaries. Their names are on the tip of my tongue, but they escape me. Who am I fooling, it's DAG and me. kittykate, welcome back and glad to know your relationship with your partner has...

    Irony Is Dead

    Mags, not that I have confirmation, but in recent actions by Teach, he seems more intent on finding a relationship for himself than trying to seriously connect with DAG and I. He and DAG still have a strong emotional connection, but the contact between Teach and I has diminished somewhat...

    I expect the home study to trip us up, if we fess up to being poly, no matter how short lived. Congrats on having successful adoptions! I am sure you were heartbroken with the offers stopped. My heart goes out to you!

    Irony Is Dead

    BB, we have suspended any poly activity for now and the foreseeable future. DAG is not actively looking for any new relationships right now and honestly, I am not looking for anything new either. The new guy came out of the blue, but I only want a friendship with him. Thank you for the info...

    Irony Is Dead

    An update: Nothing has moved forward with Teach. I am not sure what is going on with him. We're not pursuing anything with him until he approaches us about forming a throuple. Since he admitted to having feelings for DAG and I, he's been quiet. I hope there is more to come from him about this...

    Irony Is Dead

    Fallout (yes, I had to make that reference, lol) from Teach's birthday cabin trip. First, some background. DAG and I have talked about including a third in our life. We never really pursued it, as there hasn't been anyone in our life which we would seriously consider including. A few months...

    Irony Is Dead

    These were the best of times and the worst of times. First, the best. Teach's birthday party at the wooded cabin was a blast! All twelve of us got along great. There weren't even any shenanigans, at least not in front of others. DAG and I did not have sex (like I had hoped) even though I asked...

    Irony Is Dead

    Another milestone for me. I asked DAG for something I want and he agreed to it. That in of itself isn't big news, but this is: I asked DAG to give me consideration if someone on this cabin trip wants (and asks for) sex with DAG. I want him to think about, and ask, me if I want to have sex...
