Introductions
 
So I want poly to be part of my life. Just don't know how to introduce hubby to my desires any suggestions? Not looking for sex but actual relationship with others.

Has there been any conversation about poly relationships between you and your husband? Is he familiar with the term and concept?
How did you find out about poly? Did you read an article or see something on TV or read a book on poly? Maybe whatever means you learned about poly, you could show your husband and just say something along the lines of, I kind of found this interesting....
And let the conversation grow from there. He may show some interest or he may dismiss it altogether not feeling it is right....
Look forward to hearing how thing go once the conversation starts...

Greetings Polylove6,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

JustUs gave good advice; try that and feel your way along.

For additional insight on this type of thing, I really like the following Ppercs post: How do I tell people?

You may also find it helpful to get the book "Opening Up" (by Tristan Taormino), and have you and your husband read it together and discuss your thoughts and feelings as you go along.

Please keep us posted on how things go. Hope these ideas and suggestions help!

Sincerely,
Kevin T., "official greeter" :)
