Re (from OP
"I'm curious how others came to the conclusion poly might just be who they are."
Thing is, I don't think of poly as being who I am. It is just one of the parts of my life that I have decided to accept. Who I am is a much larger set of things and poly exists within that larger framework.
But, I guess what made poly a reality in my life was when I fell in love with a married woman, and then we had to figure out what to do about that without ruining her marriage. We learned about poly at that time, and started to discuss it with our spouses.
I am glad that you have identified this important part of your life, and that your husband has been so loving and supportive about it. Use Polyamory.com to help you find the best way to pursue this new model of loving people.
Glad you could join us.
