Don't talk too loud about Polyamory....
in a Barnes & Noble. I had my first Poly date there today, and you know, it's really quiet in those places. So, in normal conversation I mentioned "the P word," and suddenly looked around. A head or two turned. So, I thought we should get up from our table and go browse some books.
The truth is, I knew within five minutes of meeting her that it was not a match I wanted to pursue. But, I was determined to stay for a while and be friendly letting her know that I really appreciated her coming to meet me. So, for an hour we browsed books and talked. I can carry on a line of conversation for an hour with almost anyone.
I'm glad I did this. It's so easy to stay at home and not take a chance.
