So, I'm moving from under consideration to in training as a sub. It's an opportunity to evaluate where we are and see how we want to proceed.
My only issues are around the poly part of things. He wants to know what I need in order to make the relationship work.
My first thoughts are openness, trust, and courage. I need to be considered his girlfriend publicly and privately. Not, other woman girlfriend, but girlfriend girlfriend.
I don't want this to come off as a girly, romantic, fairy tale notion. For me, it's a matter of integrity and sharing lives. What I want is someone to share my life with.
From reading on these boards, and from my initial talks with him, I know that it's possible to build a poly household. That's what I want.
Any suggestions on how I can articulate that clearly? (Adding to what I've already written here.)
