My husband would rather I suppress PDA when we're all out together as of right now....like i said we're all new to this. I get your point about him being a friend, too. We live in a pretty conservative area, so I guess he doesn't really want to spend the evening explaining, either...I didn't think about that.
@redpepper and mono. Thanks for the perspective. I know they need to communicate, too. I will let them hash it out amongst themselves later this week. Thanks again!
I know that its only been two months, its not my first poly situation, but it is my first time being involved with two men...it feels a lot different than the triad I had and it feels a little more complicated, both privately and socially.
Thanks for the perspective and responses, everyone! In all of this I really just want to be respectful and kind to both of my partners, and I really think yall have the wisdom of experience to help me out with this. I appreciate it immensely.
