Hi and welcome! Keep reading. You will find many people's stories here, which hopefully will give you a picture of all the many possibilities. See, there is no such thing as "The Poly Lifestyle." Polyamory is just an approach to relating that allows for having more than one loving relationship without hiding, sneaking around, or cheating. That's all. There is not one kind of lifestyle that could possibly represent what polyamory is - you simply find a way to incorporate poly into your own lifestyle, or create a new way of living that makes it work for you. But there is no lifestyle to adopt, and many, many ways to live polyamorously. If this type of ethical non-monogamy is something you want or feel compelled to practice in your life, you will find a way to make it work!
