Welcome to our forum.
"Since meeting them I've been curious, reading about polyamory & am interested in hearing people's stories as I don't know any polyfolk in real life."
Check out the "Forum Jump" menu near the bottom (right hand side) of this page; there's a "Life stories and blogs" board you can navigate to. I haven't checked it out yet (as I'm still pretty new here myself), but you should be able to find some interesting reading material there.
There's also a "Dating & Friendships" area ... might be helpful, probably worth checking it out.
There's a lot to learn about when it comes to polyamory, so make yourself comfortable and have a look around on the site.
Glad I could be here with you.
