    The "How Are You Doing" Thread (redux)

    Went on a date with wife, gf, and gf's fwb. Was awkward but had a good time! Other than that, swimming in NRE, scared and thrilled out of my mind!

    Coman- There is actually 2 meetups I know of. The Boulder poly meetup (every week) is mainly younger folks dealing also with GLBT issues, (but is loaded with drama right now). The Denver poly meetup (monthly and is this week) is full of older adults and professionals that are more experienced...

    Polyamory in television shows

    Wife watches that show a lot. I saw that episode about a month ago and the whole time was thinking "please don't be the wives, please don't be the wives"... I did like the bickering and jealousy issues, as I would think that's a normal part of the life. From Booth's limited point of view...

    Polyamory and Christianity

    LR- Whenever you (or anyone else for that matter :)) find yourself in the Denver area. :D Fidelia- Now's as good as any! Personally, I'm finding it a complete yet exhaustive text. He really doesn't leave *any* examples from scripture out, so about halfway through most chapters I'm...

    Denver open-invitation

    Denver meetup group is alive and well! Went to the Denver meetup group last night at Red&Jerry's. Fairly large turnout (around 50 people, 18 of which were new). After opening business it split off into new and experienced discussion groups. Great group of people, and I think I recognized...

    Polyamory and Christianity

    In half seriousness, I don't think there can be peace in the middle-east until all parties (us too) can sit down to an old-fashioned southern BBQ.:) In full seriousness, MrFarFromRight - I would suggest that you read through Divine Sex. I'm on chapter 6 now, and by this point most of my...

    What did you do today that made you smile?

    Wrapped up a very big project at work. Like a huge load just fell off my shoulders... :)

    Polyamory and Christianity

    :rolleyes: No kidding... ES takes a little bit to get going. I had your reaction after the first chapter, but it picked up. It's basically an exhaustive introduction to the lifestyle full of practical advice and personal accounts. I found it very useful in some parts and not all that helpful...

    Polyamory and Christianity

    Catbird: Nice to meet you too! As Magdlyn pointed out, Paul essentially made the greatest of all foods accessible to Christians. He also tends to give me the greatest conflicts in reading the Bible. Jasminegld: I usually try not to do ad hominem, seriously. :p . I meant it from the...

    We found that simply talking about it strengthened our relationship as well. Now we're just trying to get up the courage to take the next step. We're both excited and nervous at the same time!

    Did your comfort with poly come gradually or in an epiphany?

    Epiphany for me, gradual for my wife. To me it's as though all-of-a-sudden I knew I wasn't damaged or broken anymore. For her it seems like it was a door to a whole new world she walked by every day and only now opened.

    Denver open-invitation

    Well, if you (or anyone else reading this for that matter) find yourself in the Denver area and want to meet up, by all means PM or post here. Our purpose on the board is to learn and start both in-person friendships with locals, as well as meet people from all over. That said, we wish you...

    Polyamory and Christianity

    Well, at risk of sounding blasphemous, Paul was a little crazy, with a religous fever not even Peter could match. I don't think he gets a pass just for being a church leader, but he was probably the world's first overzealous convert. Remember, most of the others converted with little guilt...

    Well, its been about a month since we joined, so we've picked up quite a bit. I'm just about done with The Ethical Slut and find I agree more and more. So to me, its like a homecoming, whereas my wife is considering it all for the first time, but she is also enthusiastic. I really like that...

    Polyamory and Christianity

    This theme is repeated multiple times throughout the Bible. I immediately thought of (horrible paraphrasing here) finding a speck in your brother's eye, when there is a log in your own. I think when Christians remember that it is about one's personal *individual* walk with Christ, you can...

    Biblical Christian Poly Living

    Wow, does that come off as snarky?! I only really meant to bump the thread, say "good on you" for having it, and add my 2 cents. Didn't mean to come off as cranky as it sounds in retrospect. I'm actually a pretty laid back Christian.
