I do have friends who've pretty much turned against P because of his being poly, so I do understand that for some folks, being close to such a situation would be something that would be unacceptable for them. Or it'd be something they made snide comments about once in a while, just to make a point.
Here's to surrounding ourselves with people who recognize that we all come with different life experiences. Vive le difference...
Mono. Divorced, two kids, two cats, one house with many projects.
My partner of ~3 years. Poly. In relationships with me, Xena, and Noa.
Poly. In relationships with Chops and Noa, and dating others.
Married, Poly. In relationships with Chops and Xena (individually).
