    I am new to poly! My boyfriend recently told me

    and our mutual best friend (female) that he wants both of us. My first reaction was hell no but after all of this arguing and fighting all I want is to make the man I am in love with happy. At the moment I am struggling bc I've never been with a woman and I don't know if I can...

    They broke up with me.

    The reasons given were many and contradictory. (I'm married to someone else, I made a gentle suggestion to the new girl that was above my pay grade, I had friends outside the relationship). I feel like the new girl definitely had some say in the matter. I tried so hard to make...

    My Reason For Polyamory

    I feel that relationships which are based around fortifying and feeding the self-worth of yourself and your partner are deleterious to the phenomenon of true, selfless love. True, selfless love is ego-free. Without the desire to feed the ego, there is no jealousy when the loved...

    I discovered I was polyamorous

    when I was 22 years old. I'm 27 now and with two of the best men in my life I could ever ask for!! I've had many crushes on the way, but none of them understand that I'm not the type to cheat... So I won't be opening my heart up to anyone new, anytime soon. To my boys, Nick and...

    My wife and I are looking

    for a serious, long-term, equal relationship with a Bi female for a closed triad(I guess that's the best term). We certainly won't turn down anyone just looking for friendship. We have been married for four and a half years, dated two and a half years before that, and were...

    I've always been comfortable with the idea

    that people love each other. I met two girls at the same time at the Disneyworld campground when I was 15 and spent the whole day kissing both of them and feeling the compersion from each as they shared me between themselves. I'd had girlfriends but never two and it felt fine...

    Connections

    For me, it is best to keep my connections loose. Nothing in life stays the same, and yet most people pretend that love and desire are immune to the passage of time. People evolve, and grow and move. Change is inevitable. And if the connections I make are tight, if they have very...

    My Poly Journey

    When I first became involved with my boyfriend D, He insisted that the relationship be an open one. He'd never been in an open or poly relationship, but he'd wanted to live that way for many years. I'd grown up with some pain and loss and the idea of sharing the person I love...

    My Feelings About Polyamory

    I have known for awhile that I was polyamorous because I don't believe in monogamy in terms of the societal norm of thinking that one person can satisfy all your needs. I believe in loving multiple people because each relationship with each person is unique and you can get...

    To me I've always felt this way,

    it seemed strange to limit who I could love to just one person, and I think it's more natural for us to have many loving relationships.

    I May Be Polyamorous

    I have been involved three times in a multiple relationship. Twice in a MMF and once in a MFF. They didn't work out for various reasons. I still think it is a workable thing (YMMV). One thing I really hate is that newbies who don't understand what the word means will think it...

    Random Thoughts Of My Poly Life

    I am polyamorous. I am not looking for a third partner to "enhance" my relationship. I am not looking for what is little more than a live sex toy to help "fix" my partner and my sex life. I am not "curious" to "explore" being poly. I happened to fall in love with a man...

    I have too much love to give

    for just one person :p I was introduced to the lifestyle when I was pretty young, and I've fallen in love with it. It fits me too perfectly! I'm not jealous or controlling, and sometimes there are things I can't get from one person that I can from another.

    Poly and Proud!

    I discovered poly after I was already practicing! Currently, I live with two partners and play with more, though I'm only fully sexual with the two primaries. We are not in a triad, but we play with mostly the same people. I enjoy the family aspects of polyamoury, and the...
