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!

Sincerely,
'Leo'

TNPoly
 
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.

[edit]
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 :)
