Hi I'm new
Hi, I'm Dave in Orlando. I am new to this forum, and new to polymory. I am straight and curious about exploring with 2 females. I don't know the etiquette, protocol or niceties yet... so please forgive me if I offend anyone with my curiosity and ignorance. Thanks! :)

Welcome. What do you mean by "exploring with two females"? :confused:

DaveOrlando 09-07-2009 06:59 PM

I mean exploring the possibilities of what might take place. I am brand new to this, and a bit nervous & cautious.

Dave, you are safe here. It would be helpful to tell us a little more about what brought you here and what exactly you are looking for so we can get to know you a little better and understand where you're coming from.

(vague interest in "what would take place" with the relationship you are interested in doesn't give us much to chew on, and the people on this forum are truly out to be there for you, listen, teach, etc.)

How about some direct questions.

Are you currently single?
What is your concept of polyamory?
What attracted you to this website?
What is your background regarding relationships(monogamous, swinger, poly, etc)?
Any other info that would help us to understand what you're thinking about?

I look forward to getting to know you and recommend you read as many threads as you have time for to get to know the people, and how this forum works, also clarification on terms and language.

There is also a sticky section in "General Discussions" titled "Personal Summaries" where you can more fully introduce yourself and learn the backgrounds of others.

I got on this site only a couple of months ago and have really learned a lot and enjoyed the perspectives and support offered here.

Again, welcome.

I meant pretty much what rarechild spelled out ever so much better. I was rushing around when I replied. Please...introduce yourself further and share some details and get comfortable. People here are wonderful.

Thanks for the welcomes!

I am used to public forums where you can get flamed for being too specific, so I learned to be vauge. I will try my best to open up; I am a man after all... you know how tight lipped we can be. (LOL)

Answers to Rarechilds questions (thanks for asking and helping out a "newbie").

Are you currently single? Yes (Divorced)

What is your concept of polyamory?
I gather from reading that it is an all-encompassing term for those who love and partner with more than one other. I really like the concept set forth on the website Trinogamy.org that is just like monogamy, but with three. I am straight, and have never been unfaithful... nor will i ever be; It's not in me.... I am not promiscuous.

What attracted you to this website?
I began researching "Poly" after learning that My Brother and his Wife's "roommate" is their triad partner. I wanted to know what is up with that? and if it something that I might be interested for my own life. I think it is.

What is your background regarding relationships(monogamous, swinger, poly, etc)? Always straight monogamous one-on-one. Never even tried a threesome. I have friends that are swingers, and that doesn't appeal to me.
To each their own... right?

Any other info that would help us to understand what you're thinking about?
I just want to be happy like everyone else. I have a lot to offer.. very romantic, and a gentleman always.

I am a professional entertainer, so some discretion is wise.

I hope this makes for a better introduction.. Again Thank you all.

Welcome to the forums! I think you will find that we are not a very judgemental bunch. Just ask anything you want.

DaveOrlando 09-09-2009 02:41 PM


I'm just trying to sort it out and work my way through the concept of multiple simultaneous romantic relationships; Still not sure it is right for me.

It's hard enough to figure out what one woman is thinking, let alone two. I guess I have a fear of them ganging up on me :D
