Hello to anyone reading this. I am new to this page.

As far as my life path goes, I always knew I was different. I love differently from most people. I have failed time and time again in my relationships. I wasn't my full self. I always felt like something was missing. I would have these relationships and I would always feel like I was not finding the right match up, or they lacked what I was looking for.

Then magically I found myself in love with someone I was close to. I was in a relationship and wasn't sure why I had feelings for another person when I was already in a relationship with one human being. I felt like there was something wrong with me, or that I was a cheater for feeling the way I felt.

I went to Google to see if there was a name for everything I was feeling. That's when it hit me like a ton of bricks. I was poly. I was able to love more then one person at a time. I just knew I was going to have a hard time being in monogamous relationship.

While on my path, I started trying to connect and explain myself, and I failed every single time. I was called names and left. I just kept failing.

I still haven't found my happy ever after. I have an amazing woman by my side and for the first time in two years I told her something was missing to my story. She hasn't left my side after two years.

I recently had fallen in love with my best friend. Sadly, she broke my heart before I was even able to tell her how I felt. I let her go. I was honest with my partner about my feelings.

So I am trying again to branch out and find that love again. I really hope I can get it right. I keep hoping to find friends so I am not alone in my thoughts and feelings. Maybe surrounding myself with people who think the way I do will help me not feel so alone or so different. That would be awesome.
Greetings BabyGirl,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

If we could really know how many people (what percentage) are poly inside, we might be surprised! Monogamy is something that is kind of imposed on us through social conditioning. We just assume that that is the "normal" way to love. Lo and behold, the divorce rate is through the roof!

Keep reading and posting, and you will make new friends.

Welcome to the group, babygirl. My wife and I are new here as well. We are new to the poly lifestyle. My wife has known basically all her life and has asked me to explore. I am willing to explore anything that she finds happiness in. The more reading and research I have done, the more I feel that I have been poly for a long time without knowing it. Anyway, that is some of our background. We wanted to welcome you and hope we can become friends among the many you will make here.
