Middle TN poly people?
Looking to hear from others in the area. I found the TN Poly list, but it seems pretty much dead. Are there any get togethers, support structures, etc in the area?

Not sure, but I'm only a few hours from there. :)

I live in Middle TN and just recently formed a Triad and would love to make some friends in the area to be able to hang out with and be open.

Hi there!

I know there is a TNPoly website but I haven't seen any events planned. My girlfriend, JennaMarie, and I are looking for a sexual vee for me and an emotional vee for both of us. :)

Hopefully there will be some events in middle TN soon so we can meet up!

There is a TNPoly website that I have been on for quite some time now. It appears pretty much dead. They do advertise for the Atlanta Poly Weekend, but outside of that, there is not much activity.

Perhaps we should step up and put something together. There does seem to be enough interest to at least start to think about a meeting.

I noticed the same thing when I joined the TN Four Play site...

It's a shame we can't find a more vibrant community online for TN. Perhaps it's the 'bible-belt', the fear that some have of revealing their desires, who knows...

It's sad, nonetheless.

Absolutely. A meeting could be fun.

Well, grab the bull by the horns and set one up! ;-)
That's pretty much what we did in upstate New York, and it has grown quite nicely.

It can be as simple as a mailing list, or a Yahoo group, or Facebook Google+ - your choice of free social networking is huge right now.

And it doesn't have to be a big organisational effort, either. Pick a coffee shop that is fairly central and say "We'll be there at 3pm on Sunday, and we'll have a parrot figurine at our table" (or some other way to be identified).

It's low-pressure and it gets things started - if nobody turns up, then you at least can have a nice cup of coffee in comfort :)

All times are GMT. The time now is 02:08 PM.
