Hi and welcome!

Every relationship, whether polyamorous or monogamous, has its own unique qualities. It all depends on the people involved, what they are looking for, and are willing to create for themselves. Polyamory is simply the practice or desire to have multiple loving relationships -- there is no common "type" of relationship nor specific poly "lifetsyle" to adopt. So, what kinds of relationships do you want? How do you envision making that happen?

I suggest you do some reading around this forum, read some of the stories in our Blogs section, check out our Golden Nuggets forum, and perhaps pick up a book on poly - there is a thread with suggestions for reading material. Any specific questions, please feel free to ask!
