    Greetings and Other Problems (speaking up)

    This is something that happened a long time ago with Lora, Jon, and me. I debate how I handled it then, and wanted to ask how other poly people would have handled it. Jon, Lora and I were invited to a wedding. It was Jon's friend's wedding, and he was in the wedding party. Because of that, he...

    What to do when your lover breaks up with his abusive metamour

    Seriously, what I'm asking for is advice. Has anybody been through this, and can give me advice? I know there is no "one size fits all" for it. I told him that if he needs anything from me, anything at all, to text me. He doesn't really want to see me right now, which I know isn't about me...

    Do the Situations Change for Long-Term Poly People?

    I've been wondering about something lately. It seems like many of the stories and problems here are told/presented by people who are either new to being polyamorous and/or have begun dating someone who is new to being polyamorous. And many of them deal with those feelings of being afraid of a...

    happy to find this place! :)

    Hi All, I'm Liz - I've been theoretically poly (and/or poly-friendly)* all my life. I started being deliberately poly sometime in my mid 20s. I originally chose to live my life polyamorously because I take some friend relationships (with like-minded friends) as seriously as I take my romantic...
