Newb from NC here...
I'm new to this whole thing and have never had a poly relationship before. I have a male SO and want to have a relationship with a female. I find it incredibly hard to find women interested in being with someone who already has a significant other. A lot of people just don't seem to get it or frown on it. Most women I talk to mistakenly think I'm looking for a threesome partner or a one night stand.
My SO is incredibly open minded and has more experience with poly than I do. I think this is something I've wanted for a long time, but growing up in the bible belt has always led me to be really shy and repressed about my attraction to women. I've also had a string of really jealous exes as well, but I feel my current SO is really helping me come into my own and express myself. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
