    I am in a new and confusing situations which,

    after much research, the best description of is polyamory. I have been with my husband for five years, married for two and have a one year old son. I also am in love with my best friend (male) who is also married (and also in love with me). We both love our respective spouses...

    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...

    Not to be confused with swinging,

    whoring around, or being a pervert. My perversions are entirely separate from my relationship lifestyle, thank you.

    It took me years to realize that

    for me I'm happiest when I'm with someone who is also open minded and polyamorous:) Now just to find Mr Right.

    I am debating "coming out" to my conservative

    parents as poly. My fear is that my mom will worry herself sick about this and will never accept it. I don't think there is any way to convince her this isn't adultery and a sin. I'm torn between the desire to be honest and the desire to protect her happiness. What do you guys...

    I am seriously battling my jealousy.

    With everything going on, I feel very much like she is trying to be me or replace me with my husband. I know in my head she isn't but she keeps taking all my ideas and plans for things and trying to change them or use them for herself.

    Almost ten years ago,

    I spent an agonizing year in a relationship with two men. One on the East Coast and one on the west coast. I was in love with both of them but was dating only one (Mr. East coast). Mr. West coast was wooing me. I couldn't comprehend the anxiety and feelings I was feeling, and...

    I Get It.

    I've been haunting polyamory forums ever since my boyfriend-turned-husband mentioned he is polyamorous. I had no idea of the concept before I read about it, and it made a lot of sense, but it seemed very risky. It seemed many bad things, so much so that I ended up on webpages...

    Multi-Loving not "Open Relationship".

    ... am I alone in that I need to be in love to have sex? I am not into casual sex, but I want to love all the people that actually want to love me. I feel so alone in this point of view.

    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...

    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.

    I've just recently begun to say I'm polyamorous

    out loud. Just the idea of it put all of my past relationships into perspective. The caged bird feeling. Why I was always an emotional yoyo. That alone feels great. The thought of it makes me smile. Makes me finally feel free, but also as if I've stepped out of the closet...
