    Trashtalking by partners and potential partners: What are your rules and tolerances?

    Wow. I have absolutely zero tolerance for that kind of behavior. Not that we cannot all expect people to perhaps feel a bit threatened in such precarious and uncharted emotional territory, but the minute the degrading language comes out about anyone I love . . . well that utterly changes the way...

    Observation - Imposing Perspectives (reinstated thread)

    Okay, nobody needs to get excited over this. I posted this a while ago on account of relevancy to the question before anyone had responded to me. Yes, being labeled as something I felt I was not did seem all-too-familiar and unfortunate. I self-identified as 'poly' by joining this group (I...

    Where doyou meet people to share with your partner apart from 'poly community' events

    Thank you Schrodinger and November for your thoughtful responses. It seems I may have walked semantically into a situation where I was using terms that have a negative connotation to some people here.

    My new thread dissappears when I hit submit

    Question . . . (hopefully this posts, though I suspect it won't): do all new threads require approval by a moderator before showing up? I am new to these forums and I just tried 3 times over to post a new thread in the 'relationships' section. Each time I submit I am thanked as though everything...

    Where doyou meet people to share with your partner apart from 'poly community' events

    This is my first post on this forum, so hello to all of you and thanks for taking the time to consider my question. It's a simple one: if you were looking to meet a potential date to explore ménage à trois with your committed partner, where would you go to meet such a potential play mate if you...
