How it started
 
Hello!
New to this forum, not to polyamory. My partner (J) and I started sleeping together casually about 7 years ago and decided about 3 years ago that we should date for real. We were monogamous for a year, then he met someone that was poly and there was mutual interest. We discussed it - it wasn't necessarily hard because of our past and how we know each other - and decided that we would take it slow but figure out how to be poly in a committed relationship. We have both had casual partners but nothing serious until recently.

In February, I met a paramour (B). He is mono and always has been. I approached him about the idea and he seemed interested. It started fairly slow, with him figuring out how to be in a poly relationship. We eventually slept together, which was a big conversation for J and I and a big step in our polyamory. Unfortunately, I had to call things off with B earlier this week due to conflicts in the relationship. I am grateful for the time we had but it had run it's course. We'll see what happens next.

Hi and welcome!

By the way, the term "metamour" refers to your lover's other lover(s), not someone you are involved with. See: Glossary and Definitions

Thank you for the clarification. Terms can be confusing sometimes. :)

Where did this term come from? I only just recently heard it. N's friend mentioned it and he asked me and I had to look it up. I was on PMM over 10 years and never saw it.
