Doh! Yeah I’m sick with a cold (maybe the flu) and needed sleep badly when I made that post.
What I meant by “stumble” is indeed the “accidental” triads that sometimes form. Not a unicorn hunting couple who is stumbling into/through poly.

Yep, that’s what I’ve noticed so far.
Not having much success in getting statistic on poly success versus failure.
I did find some statistic pointing to a correlation between Bisexuality and poly.
And I found that there’s a lot of newer poly news out there. I haven’t done any web searches on poly in a while. I’ve found so many good articles, from reading these forums, that the need to search “on my own” so to speak just hasn’t been present.
So here’s the link to an article
that estimates that 40% of bisexuals, chose (or practice) poly (maybe non-mono is more correct). And estimates that 40% of polys are bisexual. Using those estimates says that there are about 3.1 million US polys. (paraphrased from the very end of this article)
Now to find a place to post the other interesting articles, and videos I found.
