Hello MomMaria, glad to see you on here.

I am also new to this forum, and only just starting to live and love the poly life. So you have a lot more experience and wisdom than I do in living poly.

I would love to know more about how it was growing up in a poly community. My wife and I have decided to keep our poly life separate from our littles, we are still learning and not really sure how that might work or how our local community would recieve us.

Anyway, beautiful photo and feel free to contact me if you'd like to chat sometime.

While this *can be* a totally valid choice for some people, it's definitely one I'd encourage you to think hard about in the long run. Given the new forum I can't find some of the previous threads on it BUT if you ever have your future partner(s) around your children at all, lying about your actual relationship with become very very obvious, even to children you think are too young to notice. Literally I once had my then-three-year-old comment on the difference between the relationship between my husband and his then girlfriend and my relationship with her (technically I was kind of dating her too, but it was much more casual). Yes, it does mean that you may have to be out to your community, but I think for me at least, not lying to my kid was worth that. Of course, I take not lying to my kid seriously enough that we didn't even really encourage Santa Claus much, so YMMV.

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

That's pretty neat that you grew up in a poly community, hopefully more people will be able to say that in the future, but right now it's quite rare. I hope you will enjoy your stay on Polyamory.com, perhaps you will even have advice for others who come here with questions. Welcome!

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

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

Thank you Kevin.

The poly community I grew up in was like a collective with people rooted in the new age and green movement. Some of the cornerstones were nudity and free love and collectively childcare. As a member, you were also "married" to the whole group.

I'll support as much as I can.

Maria

That's awesome Maria. It helps so much to have some kind of background, and you seem to be a cool person in general.
