Welcome to the forums! I tend to be nervous unshakably in new situations off the net. Usually around the issues that are closest to my heart like polyamory.
The collective sounds interesting. What comes to mind are intentional communities and cooperatives. Are these different than the collective you mention?
My preference within a polyamorous relationship is a non-hierarchical one. It would be wonderful to develop a poly family where we lived together in the future. I don't have a numerical preference but I do see a house filled with warmth and love. And this doesn't exclude relationships with those who don't live with me either. Currently I'd like to form relationships with others who have spiritual and/or kinky interests in common.
I saw your post on the UU thread. Are you a UU or also joyful that they open arms to the polyamorous people?
Are you a polyamorist or non-monogamous individual between the ages 18-35? Are you located in New York State or the Northeast?
Join us at The Network, a social and socially aware network which connects young polys and progressive polys of all ages.
~Open up your mind and let me step inside.
Rest your weary head and let your heart decide. It's so easy.
When you know the rules.
It's so easy. All you have to do is fall in love.
Play the game.
Everybody play the game of love. Yeah...~
