me? I couldn't do it that way. I'd spend a weekend calling everyone. But you know your people better than we do.

I allowed myself to listen to my gay friends when I came out as queer to my parents. I *knew* my parents didn't care, but after listening to so many horror stories, I allowed myself to get all freaked out. They kindly spent about half an hour trying to tell me in the gentlest way possible, 'so what?'

So, when it came to poly, I just had conversations with all my closest people.

I had an episode where I tried to tell something important to them in a casual way, and aspects of our relationship were irreparably harmed. So, that's why I always have a conversation.
