Poly male/female couple 31/27 based just outsiude of London. I've started going to meet ups in London via meetup.com. Theres also polyday coming up which im looking forward to! Is anyone else going? http://polydaylondon.polytical.org/
My Wife and I are based in Cardiff these days although we are initially from Southern England.
We are curious to learn how people who are in Poly relationships are generally finding people react in the UK?
We are not in anyway concerned bout how people feel about it and I have spoken to one friend at my work place, who while he thought it wasn't for him, he understood why my bi-sexual wife and I would like to have a girlfriend.
We have not spoken to any family about it however because we know we will get a lot of questions and I suppose we don't really feel confident in answering all of them at the moment.
Husband and I are just starting out which means it all feels new and exciting and we can end up talking about it too enthusiastically with friends. They generally start out a little taken aback, come round to saying they understand it in theory but couldn’t do it themselves. We do need to be careful though because we live in a small town and are both pretty well known in the community. So, as much as I don’t care what others think, we do need to protect our family/jobs etc.
Husband has discussed with his Mum as they’ve had some big bonding time this year and she was really supportive and impressed that we can have these conversations. His brother also knows about it and is supportive but I don’t think we’d share with any other family members.
