I'm a new member and, from what I can tell, one of the younger ones in this forum. I'm a 21-year-old college student who had a persistent feeling all his life that monogamy wasn't for him, and I'm incredibly relieved to know that this isn't strange.
It seems like a lot of people discover polyamory within a committed relationship or after the end of a troubled relationship, and I've found a lot of good advice online for dealing with that. Here's the thing- I'm not in a relationship and I essentially have my whole life ahead of me. On the one hand, I feel like I'm in an incredibly fortunate position; on the other, I don't know of any "roadmaps" out there that might guide me and help me start polyamorous relationships from scratch this early in life.
With this in mind, what mistakes do you think I might make in the future? What advice would you give someone my age, starting adulthood as polyamorous? I'd really like to start things off on the right foot.
