    Pink's Journey

    It seems I'm at a crossroads. Or maybe it's a midlife awakening? At any rate, my life is changing so quickly that I barely have time to process one change and regain my footing, before the next has my head spinning again. Seems like an appropriate time to start a blog :rolleyes: I am Pink...

    My partner, Blue, & I have been together for two years. Our lives are intertwined....he spends time with my children, stays over night most nights. We all take vacations together. He maintains his own home so that he has a place to host other women when he's dating. I've tried dating but...

    Sleeping Arrangements

    I am admittedly, somewhat freaky about my sleep. After years of fighting insomnia, I'm finally in a position where I sleep soundly most nights. It took me a considerable amount of time to adjust to sleeping at my partner's house, and I still don't usually sleep well at hotels. Reading the...

    Polysaturation and balance

    Can we talk about polysaturation and how to maintain balance, boundaries, and commitments to current relationship(s) while pursuing new relationships? My questions specifically are: * How do you determine your saturation level? * Have you had to walk away from a new interest because you did...

    Boundaries within relationships

    Can we talk personal boundaries as they relate to poly? Specifically, what boundaries do you have in your romantic/sexual relationships? Maybe how you arrived at those boundaries (ie Did you have previous boundaries that were breached, or rules that you outgrew & tossed? etc.) My reason for...

    Sex drive & poly

    Is there a correlation between higher sex drives and polyamory? I'll admit that my experience is limited (only been in a poly relationship less than 2 years), but it seems the poly people I've met irl, and many that post on here, have higher than average sex drives/greater frequency? Do you...

    Let's talk metamours

    I'm still relatively new to poly (less than 2 years.) One of the many things I find fascinating about poly, is the different ways in which everyone handles metamours. Just for discussion's sake, what is your ideal relationship to your metamour(s) and how does that gel with your partner(s)...

    Poly = want to date ALL THE MEN!

    I've had several frustrating experiences of late. Blue & I are out as a poly couple to a select group of friends. In addition, we attend poly meet-ups & have made many new poly friends. All great things. Unfortunately, several of the men seem to assume that woman in a poly relationship with...

    Fear & Insecurity when your partner is in NRE

    My partner, Blue, is in a new relationship with a woman I'll call Red. He's spending more time with her and on the phone with her. The result is that there's less time for us (which isn't a bad thing persay as we spend a lot of time together... not married and not living together but together...

    Family style living in poly

    I love the concept of living communally, as a family with my love(s) and metamours. Obviously, I realize that there are many reasons why this wouldn't work/be ideal...ranging from personality styles to finances, and communication and organizational skills, etc, etc. It's also not a possibility...

    Dealing with anxiety when your SO is dating

    I'm newer to the poly thing. My current bf, Blue, is my first poly relationship. We've been together a year. During that time, he's dated 3 people. He was already involved with the first two when we started dating. I had no anxiety over those relationships... I think because they were...
