Welcome to our forum.
Poly or swing, normal or different, we're glad you're here, and sure you'll find friends and comrades on this site. I notice you're in Austin also, which has a substantial local poly population so you're in luck in that regard as well.
Feel free to lurk and/or post as desired/needed. There is much to read here.
