    Love Language: Gifts

    I could use a little bit of brainstorming if anyone is willing. Asha seems to be feeling unloved, to the point where she's pushing us away. The best I can figure, without actually having the ability to see her in person, is that we've not been speaking her love language enough lately, which is...

    Quad Family

    First...I'm calling my husband Easy, my boyfriend Sunday, and my girlfriend Asha. My teenager I'm calling Moose (because he likes to say it, not because he resembles one), my 11yo daughter Monkey, and I'm still working on names for Asha's children. My quad went en masse to a birthday party...

    They think we're sisters...

    So, my female partner (sorry, she's not on the forum and I can't come up with a cute name for her yet) and I apparently look alike in some way. We frequently get asked if we're sisters--at the Y, in the stores, by our children's teachers. It's not really a big deal, but I find it creepy, and I...

    Sexual Intimacy and HPV

    So I've been trying to get some information on HPV lately, and I have to say that it's been frustrating. But what I've come up with is frightening for me. My female partner has asked to be intimate with someone outside of our polyfi quad. She would, of course, use a condom. However, the...

    Successful Quads?

    Is there anyone from a successful quad who wants to share a blog or tips for what works for them? I'd be sincerely grateful. My poor partner has been searching the internet and only finding blogs of quads who broke up. It's hard on her, and me too. I'd like to see some happiness.

    Outed!

    Soooo...wife #2 and I met at a homeschool co-op we belong to. She was on the phone with one of the other members, whom I'll call M, last night and made a comment about things being crazy in her life and maybe someday she'd tell M about it. M apparently said, "Oh do you mean about the polyamory...

    Bdsm

    Oh boy, another question from Lemondrop. Yay! (I'm really sorry, and if this isn't appropriate let me know and I'll delete the post.) CAUTION-- I need the advice of someone experienced with BDSM. So, in case anyone doesn't know, I'm in a quad comprised of myself, my husband, and another...

    NRE (New Relationship Energy) - Merged Threads, General Discussion

    Sooooo...I don't know exactly what NRE means, but I get the idea it's the giddy stupid feeling that makes you act like an idiot at the beginning of a relationship? Husband #2 and I are apparently suffering the effects. He's done a couple of dumb things that hurt his wife, and has informed me...

    What are the rules, please?

    I'm here because I'm trying very hard to fit a monogamous mind into a polyamorous quad. A lot of my issues and questions are sexual in nature. I feel unsure that I can talk about this here--I wouldn't go into huge detail, but is that okay here? Or would that not be appropriate on this forum...

    New Relationship Difficulties

    I finally agreed to give the whole polyamory thing a go. I've been married a long time to one man, but our closest couple-friends are interested in being more. They've been together a long time, too. We all have children at home, and mine are the oldest. I have little experience with...

    New

    Hi. I'm a full-time mom to two kids, married for a long time to one partner. Recently, I've become aware that another couple with kids would like to be polyamorous with us--not swinging, which we don't do, but actually long-term grow-old-together family. I'm familiar with polyamory through...
