    I Often Find Myself Guilty of It...

    Jasmin the Most Beautiful Flower...

    Yes, I Get Jealous

    I admit it. I don't get ragingly jealous, just the usual "grrrrr, get your hands off my man!". I am polyamerous, I can love more than one person and don't mind my loves loving others. What I do mind is my loves giving or seeming to give more love and attention to...
