Hello. I am Allison. I'm thirty years old. I moved to New Albany, Indiana from Maryland back in January. I have one partner currently who I have been with for long term going on nine years now. We discussed polyamory early on in our relationship and planned to explore it once we had worked on the new relationship between us and ourselves. Fast forward six years, we opened up our relationship. He doesn't have any interest at the moment to date anyone, so it's been only me meeting new people and opening up my heart to potentials. It's been a few years now. I've definitely learned some things and had my heart broken a couple times. From the beginning, one thing that means a lot to us, my boyfriend and I, is that we only date people who are closed poly/polyfidelity, for health reasons, mostly. It's been so hard finding people who are. The people I meet see poly as a way to have many, many partners. The pandemic isn't helping. I've been talking to someone for a few months now. I don't think it's going to work out. I don't think we're as compatible as we hoped. I plan on holding off on dating until a reliable vaccine is out and successful. Sometimes I wonder if I will find what I am looking for. I'm just glad that I am not alone in this.
