I choose not to tell most people and some of my friends just want me to be happy, but they still feel sorry for me. I just wish they could see what an amazing guy he is.
I have found that in time people come around when they see its working for me and that I am happy. I tell stories about my life and they listen to hear where things are fucking up so they can say "I told you so" but I don't give them anything to go on. I consult poly friends when I need advice and support. Not mono friends. They usually don't get it and not as a result are not able to support me. Different friends for different areas of life. Nothing wrong with that.
