Hello, my name is myra! Like many newbies to this fourm I am new to the poly lifestyle. I have been married for close to 9 years now and I've always wanted to go on a date with a girl. I've been with my husband for most of my adult life, lol.

More than anything I would like to meet new friends and learn more about this lifestyle.
Greetings Myra,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

Sounds like you are hoping to explore another side of yourself that you have perhaps not been able to in the past. Have you and your husband had "the poly talk" yet, or are you just learning more about polyamory for now?

There's a great deal to learn about polyamory and Polyamory.com is a good home base to use for that learning process. You will make new friends here too, I'm sure of it.

Glad to have you with us.

Welcome aboard!
We've had the poly talk over the years. We just never acted on it. Most importantly we didn't know how to find someone interested.
It takes awhile to find someone who's interested. I can give you a few links and ideas if you want. You've discovered our Dating & Friendships subforum so that's a good place to start.
Links to try (poly-friendly dating sites):

Finding a local poly group in your area can be a big help. Googling "Georgia polyamory" might turn up some fruitful results. I also have specific links to lists of local groups, let me know if that sounds helpful and I will provide.

"As for where to meet poly people, if by some chance you are interested in anything alternative like Renaissance fairs, goth culture, sci-fi conventions, indie music, bdsm, or any small fringe group, you will be more likely to meet people who have at least heard of poly and are accepting of it."
-- SpaceHippieGeek, Polyamorous Percolations

And even if it's not an "alternative" type group, if there's a club or something in your area that does something you're interested in, you can always join that group and it just gives you a way to get out there and meet people. If you meet someone on a platonic level and get to talking about poly, then they can decide how they feel about it without any "pressure to agree." Then if they do decide poly doesn't bother them too much, and some kind of romantic connection subsequently develops, you'll already have "had the poly conversation" with them.

These are the basics I know of, but let me know if would help if I'd "delve deeper." I'd start with that list of local-poly-group lists, then offer some threads from Polyamorous Percolations that might aid you in your search.

Good luck,
Kevin T.
Thanks so much! That helps a lot. My husband and I spent hours last night talking about this and we are both very happy. It feels really good to finally get everything in the open!
That's great, I wish you well on your search and journey into the nuts and bolts of polyamory. Keep reading/participating in the threads we have on this site; it will help you get more ideas.

I am glad to help more at any time, just let me know if I can.
