Welcome aboard.

You'll find threads full of information on the New to Poly and General Discussion boards.

One really good early tip would be to make sure that whatever expectations you have are made clear and that you know what their expectations in respect to you are. For example, my wife and I recently had a bit of a misunderstanding with her boyfriend because she neglected to tell him about a date that she was going on with her (now) second boyfriend. She didn't think it was a big enough deal to tell him, and he feels he should know about any possibly romantic events that don't include him or me. To beat the dead horse a little, communication is key.

Yep, communication. Make sure you are all on the same page.
