    Not really a blog

    (^^^ The Reddit opinion. I just wanted to make sure, in case anybody singles out my post and your quote, that it's understood to be out of context.) I do wonder if this is partly why I have also seen such high praise, or pride taken in identification of "solo-poly." Solo poly is sought after -...

    Not really a blog

    I hope it's okay if I reply to this. I just wanted to say that I couldn't agree more with what you said! I'm behind on my reading list, so I'm sure I'll eventually hit that poly thread at some point. I know how that subreddit can be - I've talked about it before stating (and half joking) that...

    I didn't know this was a thing. Thank you for sharing. I'm going to look in to it.

    I don't know if I want to reconnect with my wife

    Hey there, I'd like to try and see if I could at least relate. I mean, I feel like I'm relating to a lot of what you wrote, and hopefully talking can help. Let me first give you a rundown of myself. Better yet, I'll just link it, and we'll get to what you want to talk about... There are a...

    Looking for a poly couple in dmv

    Ha! Yeah, the first time I heard someone say / write it I thought the same thing. For those that come by ... DC, Maryland, Virginia - and usually meaning the metro area specifically. From my last look-in, there are many people open to polyamory in that area.

    Couples' Privilege Article.

    ^^ There's another thread where the comments are littered with people saying that [insert bad characteristic that happens to coincide/compare with trait mentioned in the article above] are things to stay away from. And to your point, the original poster is ALMOST literally saying, "Maybe because...

    Couples' Privilege Article.

    TLDR: I'm with you Seasoned, I just think articles like this and the people who twist are people who are constantly seeing / dealing with some really bad experiences. I wrote a huge draft, and have deleted it because I just want to get to the nuts and bolts of you writing: This is really...

    "Just so I can do it, too"

    Chances are I would let something like that go and seek out more dates. But, maybe that just means I'm more desperate? **** I'm sorry if this is boiling down the topic a bit too much, and please feel free to correct me, or ignore me so that it can stay on topic... But, is this sort of like...

    Mac's Story Corner

    As an update, my therapist and I spoke a little more about my son yesterday. He's non-verbal autistic, and at the age of 7, really starting to show his ADHD, as well. I could tell she was trying to see if I had any emotional turmoil regarding him, and his diagnosis. Kind of wondering if I ever...

    Been asking myself that same question. I can only assume Philadelphia if you're in the northern part of the state (had a friend that lived in Bear, which was a hop skip away from Philly, AND STILL moved to Philly for a better poly experience). And if you're in the southern part of the state...

    Mac's Story Corner

    I'm stealing an idea from SEASONEDpolyAgain, and putting people in a link to my signature, and this post will service that. Me: 40, m Jean: 38, f, wife, nesting partner, mom to Lincoln Lincoln: 7 (son to me and Jean, non-verbal autistic, he is a handful) Ricky, meta: 36, m, Jean's boyfriend...

    Mac's Story Corner

    In to 2020. During the pandemic, Jean went out with Aries, a wife of my friend, Brad they took a trip to Annapolis. She seemed excited, and had asked me if it okay that she liked her. They had flirted for a long time, and I said it was cool, but I don’t know what any of this would mean for...

    Mac's Story Corner

    While I’m in a difference place now, I always considered myself monogamous for most of my life. Mainly because I never put much thought in to anything else. Alright strap in. I'll try and make asterisk *** breaks for time and story breaks. *** I met Jean at a car meet in 2010 where her and her...

    Mac's Story Corner

    Hello, you can call me Mac. You know, I actually have a blog out there. I'm not a star, it's not well trafficked, and I talk about politics, cars, and tech on top of mentioning some of my philosophical thoughts. Sometimes I talk about polyamory, but because I don't hold a pseudonym out there, I...

    Hey, formerly mono couples opening up to polyamory

    Please ignore me if I'm just talking nothing about nothing. But, I do want to try. Is it possible this (UH vs someone who wants a triad vs blanket-wanting-triad-makes-you-UH) has more to do about delivery, presentation, and a TRIAD ONLY goal VERSUS...

    Literally saving the world with poly

    :: barges through door out of breath :: Fuck, I missed it. Well, you guys did pretty well, both in spirit and on merit. I can only assume this person is a troll. I shudder to think of someone trying to be genuine - writing what they wrote, and where they decided to write it. I got here late...

    Fun and Frolic With Long-Term Love

    I had a friend in high school that worked at Thrashers. Crazy how some good fries, salt + vinegar can change the outlook on recent events. I speak for myself though. Your mileage may vary. :)

    Philosophical Type Question(s) about hierarchy

    Yes, that's one of the reasons I latched on to this thread here. I noticed that in some OkCupid profiles. Some people wouldn't date anyone that had kids (like me). And I understood that someone can prefer that; that's fine. I mean, I even expect to see people who are monogamous have a preference...
