    Ouch!!

    My full poly story can be read by looking under my name...but to try and briefly (?!) summarize........ Polyamory was a new concept to me. He introduced me to it after we had met (through email) on an online dating site. I wasn't initially sure I could handle being in a poly relationship, but...

    Ouch.....the journey ends.

    It's been a rather rough week. I broke it off with my poly guy last Sunday. He told me then that he considered me a "girlfriend", not anything like a poly wife...etc., and that it would take time for me to "earn" my way into that "status".... in addition to ongoing involvement with and...

    Feeling sad....disappointed...angry

    Met my poly guy online a little over a year ago. He is living with a partner. (He's hetero, she's bi, and I'm hetero, female) It was the first I'd ever heard of poly. At first I was "No way. Not for me. Fine for others." But then as I did a lot of reading and talking with our guy I became...

    Gratitude on Thanksgiving Day

    Just wanted to express my gratitude for the Universe bringing my poly partner and I together about this time of year one year ago. I was blessed today in being able to spend Thanksgiving with my poly couple, her son, and good friends of the family who accept us as we are. A year ago I would...

    Telling a non-poly "date" about myself

    Well I did it. I went through my first experience of trying to figure out how and when to tell a guy I had just started dating that I am in a poly relationship. The timing was hard because if we didn't really connect, I saw no need to bring it up. But, I didn't want to be perceived as lying...

    A.D.H.D........and Poly???

    Maybe one has nothing to do with the other. That's what I'm trying to sort through. (And I'm feeling confused just trying to get my concerns in writing! LOL) I've written before that I often feel like a "secondary" to the already existing relationship of "my" couple. I feel like I don't get...

    Moving....literally...forward??!!

    Well I did it! After living 6-7 hours away from my poly couple I made the decision to accept a job that's about an hour away from where they live. There were several factors that went into my decision to make a job change and move. Living closer to them was only one of those factors, although...

    Illness and adequate support / Venting

    Just a little background: My current poly relationship: He: heterosexual; She: bi-sexual, Me: female, heterosexual. None of us currently have other partners. They have had another partner on a rather short term basis a couple of times in the past few years, and they anticipate she will soon...

    Onward and......???

    Just thought I'd leave an update: This next week I'm going to be attending a S.C.A. event (Society for Creative Anachronism) along with this couple. We'll be there about 5 days. Since we're volunteering for various things, I'm not sure we'll have much time together, but it will be good to see...

    Polyamory and Memorial Day

    I saw a photo today on the headlines of AOL. It was taken three years ago at Arlington Cemetery. It was of a young woman who was lying prostate at the grave of her dead fiance. He was a soldier who had died in Afghanistan. I just started bawling my eyes out. The connection with poly and...

    "Secondary" and compromise.....

    I'm quite new to the concept of polyamory. Had never heard of it until about 6 months ago. What happened.....Met a guy through an online dating site. In his profile he identified himself as "divorced" which he is, but made no mention of being in an "open" or a "polyamorous" relationship...
