Good evening/nos da
Hello from South Wales. I am a new non-lurker, taking a quick bracing plunge to say hello and mangle some metaphors...

Don't particular see myself as poly, but am one of those strange "friends with benefits" creatures which suits where I am at the moment.I have a couple of sgnificant others. One is a loving, non-sexual connection with a man with ties elsewhere. Other is a man in open relationship who I see on a "FwB" footing when his and my scedules allow.

I am interested in meeting available other(s) for affectionate and sexual relationship that is something more than casual, but less than "full-on". According to an OKCupid test I rated as "Heavenly perfection" on their Polyamory test - whatever that means!:)
I thought I'd find out a bit more, so here I am...

I like this decription! There are a few of us here who seek the same or similar type of relationship. There is a discussion thread for "solo" people where we talk about our ideal situations and what we want. That is here: Solo poly people - what's your ideal? Even though you think you are not technically poly, you are welcome to post there.

Personally, I don't think having casual, less committed relationships excludes us from identifying or considering what we practice as polyamory. But it's not the labels that are important, anyway.

Thank you for that, nycindie - Much appreciated. Am aware that everyone is vert different, but also aware of a certain underlying philosophy regarding polyamory which I can respect, but may not share.

Agree that at one levels labels are merely that, but they can also be helpful, sometimes!

Will check out thread indicated - many thanks.

One of the things I love about the whole poly phenomenon is that many different desires and wishes are accepted, explored and celebrated.

Hope you find what you see!

Thanks for welcome. Just finding out a little more about the site and its users... :)

Hello caitlin,
Welcome to our forum.

Whatever label you use, I hope you'll feel at home here. There's a "Dating & Friendships" area (see "Forum Jump" menu at the bottom of this page, right hand side) where you might be able to look for people to meet, though I couldn't say how accomodating it will be to your locality as I haven't visited that part of Poly.com before.

Anyway, it's good to have you with us.
Kevin T.

You're quite welcome.

Happy to welcome a fellow taff. The good thing about polyamory that it is a very wide thing so you can be any "type" of polyamorist you want.

caitlin 05-05-2012 10:58 PM

Nice to hear from fellow-Taff.

Hmm.... at what point does the word become meaningless if too "open" to varied definitions though?:confused:
