Beat & Pepper
I just want you to know, I'm your age, and this is AS new. Maybe a week. But I've embraced that attitude almost instantly. I am as happy as can be right now. This will work out and be grand and yes, I've already grown in many ways since I found an ideal that worked for me and my wife.
Furthermore, I think the search for another will just be as meaningful and fun, although it will have some extreme lows along with the rollercoaster ride of Highs.
And Red Pepper:
You are absolutely right in that regard, worse yet, most of the people that I know that I have suspicions about them being poly are, but they are single or at least have no kids. (Then again, almost none of my friends really have kids or they're not at home anymore.)
