Interested in Polyamory
Hello. I'm Mike in AZ. I've heard a lot of things about Polyamory over the years. It always sounded normal to me, though I was never sure it was for me. I never really considered this as a possibility for myself. Fast forward a few years and now I'm more interested than ever in meeting folks who are into this. I'm not necessarily looking for something and not necessarily not looking for something. I guess I'm just looking to meet open minded folks who aren't afraid to allow relationships to grow deeper than just a casual friendship.

I am married with children, and my wife is also curious about polyamory (though she's a bit skeptical, I believe). Neither of us has any specific goal in mind other than meeting new friends and seeing what happens. I'm looking forward to chatting with you all.

Hi Mike,
Welcome to our forum.

Have a look at our various threads and see if there's any questions we can answer. Perhaps your wife will be less skeptical after she's heard a little more about polyamory.

Glad you could join us.

She might be less skeptical after reading a bit about poly. Though at times it can be very hard, the benefits far out weigh the risks for hubby (nutbusterx) and I. Hope you find the info your looking for to help in your path..

Thank you both. I think we just both imagine the worse canse scenarios too much, as if "traditional" was problem free. lol. At the very least, we are both poly at heart and have been for years now.

Hi Mike!
I'm Jim.
Welcome to the forum. My advice is read read read everything you both can, and take the time to discuss what you read. Take things slowly and avoid setting expectations. Remember that everyone who is involved or potentially involved has values and feelings, and set an environment in which everyone feels comfortable discussing them. Best of luck in your future. :)
