I am ready to give myself another try. I am single, bisexual female. Geeky and obsessed with good music. Through the years, I've been trying to run away from the fact that my vision of true love and loving relationship is the way it is. Confused, I was drowning in a well of my needs and wants, as I chose to ignore them, since I was to afraid of what people around me might think. Some of the people I was dating knew of my views as of what is the ideal relationship like for me, but their reactions made me even more insecure about myself. I came here to read, talk to people who are practicing polyamory. I'm more than ready to learn about myself and give myself space to grow and evolve.

Welcome. Read, share, and ask questions. What works for you does not have to work for another. We each have to find our version. Best wishes.
 
Welcome to the forum! I've only been here about a week, but I'm already feeling like a part of the community here. Everyone is really supportive, and I feel accepted in my choice to start a new way to live! Im into sharing my good vibes right now, so if you just want to talk to someone one-on-one, hit me up! I'm freshly converted from monogamy, and I think I could help people understand the illogical mental traps of that philosophy.

Greetings Venus,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

I actually don't think it's all that unusual, in this society, for people to want to live polyamorously, while being too afraid of what the world will think, to actually try it. Lots of people are secretly poly, I myself am mostly out only to the people on this forum. You are in the process of differentiating between what you want and need, and what the world thinks you should do. I'm glad you could join Polyamory.com, you can get the moral support you need here. Hang in there, and don't give up on yourself!

Sincerely,
Kevin T., "official greeter" :)

Welcome! I have also struggled with worrying about what people will think, but in the end, either being yourself or hiding who you are can lead to exile, but at least one of them is honest. <3

I have been surprised by the range of reactions I have gotten from people I have opened up to about being poly- but the people who are still in my life are there because they love me for who I really am.
