    I know I can love more

    than one person at a time, but I have never pursued polyamory. Finding the right relationships would be the most difficult part in the beginning. Open and honest communication would be essential. I know people that have started as couples and tried to add a third person. In...

    Sometimes when I'm on Facebook I write about

    things I do with "my friend." I wonder what the Facebookites think, since they know me and know I have been married many years. If they think my friend is a girlfriend, they will have one reaction. If they think it's a boyfriend, they may have quite another. So maybe it's best...

    I beleive in polyamory.

    I also believe in monogamy. What I don't believe in is a "choice" presented as "what flavor of ice cream would you like? vanilla or nothing?" that's how monogamy is presented to us. as the only choice. like you are somehow broken or less than if you can't be monogamous.

    One of the many things I have fantasized about

    is witnessing or being a part of a polyamory, maybe have even dreamt about it once. As long as those who are a part of it are ok with it, then I have no problem with it. I can understand why people want to be a part of one and why people would look against it. But I honestly...

    It's Very Possible

    I love big, and I could easily love more than one person at one time. It's not even a sexual thing- it's just that I can see beauty in so many people, and my heart is big. I don't know if I could ever actually try a poly relationship, simply because I'm insecure, and I can see...

    I guess my new found relationship with my wife

    involving being Polyamorous has been an enjoyable experience so far. Although we have had our moments of upndownedness i am really happy to be involved in such a selfless act. We have been married for 5.5 years now and things probably had started to settle into a bit of...

    I tried this with my ex husband.

    I wanted us to share a girlfriend together. Unfortunately things didn't work out, but it was nice while it lasted. You really have to have the right people for this lifestyle to work.
