*grins* You're welcome and I am definitely in agreement dakid. Without a doubt. I am grateful we are within a forum where various views can be expressed and shared on polyamory. There are some forums where the definition of polyamory is laid down quite as exclusively as you see here and beware if you have a differing view.
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.
