Not to diss all the aging hippies that are poly.
Of course they're everywhere. I'm just thinking it's coming to be more prevalent/accepted/whatever in a younger crowd.
I would second this. I've found a lot more people my age who are functionally poly but just dont call it that. The vast majority of the people I've found who declare themselves to be "polyamorous" are of a greater vintage than I.
I am as direct as a T-Rex with 'roid rage and about as subtle. It isn't intended to cause upset, I just prefer to talk plain. There are plenty of other people here who do the nice, polite thing much better than I can. I'm what you'd call a "problem dinner guest."
