Learning about poly

New member
Hi everyone! I'm excited to find this forum! I've been involved in poly in various ways over the years, though I feel like I'm still just learning. In my professional life, I'm a professor of anthropology and a psychotherapist, and I'm interested in polyamory from those angles as well. I look forward to exchanging thoughts and ideas with everyone! If you would be willing to talk with me about your experiences with poly for my anthropology work (with identities kept confidential), please let me know! You can read more about me at www.rebeccalester.com if curious.

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

We are all newbies when it comes to polyamory. There is so much to learn. I would like to exchange thoughts and ideas with you. You can read more about me at https://polyamory.com/threads/kevins-hetero-mfm-poly-fi-v.68427/#post-257039 if curious.

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

Notes:

There's a *lot* of good info in Golden Nuggets. Have a look!

Please read through the guidelines if you haven't already.

Note: You needn't read every reply to your posts, especially if someone posts in a disagreeable way. Given the size and scope of the site it's hard not to run into the occasional disagreeable person. Please contact the mods if you do (or if you see any spam), and you can block the person if you want.

If you have any questions about the board itself, please private-message a mod and they'll do their best to help.

Welcome aboard!

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I do not currently have a private practice but I did have one previously in San Fransico working with LGBT+, Poly and Kinky. I hope one day to get back to having a private practice again. I would love to chat about my personal experiences and my experiences with clients if you're interested.

Hi, I am a moderator and I've been on this board for over a decade. We get a lot of requests, from grad students, mostly, for us to answer questions about our experiences as polyamorists. Why not start a thread in Fireplace asking some of your questions? That might get you quicker results than asking for people to PM you one by one.

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for your replies! I can't tell you how much I appreciate everyone's willingness to helping me learn. I will reach out individually to those of you who said you'd be open to speaking with me further. Thank you again!

Hello! That would be amazing--I'd love to hear about your experiences! What would be the best way to connect?

HI Magdlyn,

Thank you! Forgive my ignorance, but what is Fireplace?
