Hi! I'm Meli. I am new to poly (in conscious defined terms because I've had my share of close friendships and roommates that would have been more if allowed) and currently have one partner who identifies as solo. I'm a single/divorced mom of two littles. I'm really grateful to be shedding the limiting beliefs of monogamy (which originally had more to do with property ownership than relationship) and to participate in free-of-fear authenticity instead (re-villaging). Also, I'm speaking with my best self right now. Two days ago I was a mess and I might be again in two more days, because this is all new. But even as I work out my kinks (not that kind, I'm keeping those!) I can see the growth, beauty, and freedom available in this path.
