Any person giving good relationship advice will eventually emphasize the same thing -- comunication, communication, communication. In poly, where the potential factors influencing people's behaviors and needs are exponential, it's absolutely indispensable. Clear, frequent, and direct. No guessing games allowed.
Very glad it went well.
