Default Newbies and Veterans.

I made a new friend this week that started a conversation with me about being a veteran to poly. It was about a symposium that he was on whereby the panel talked about Newbies expectations of poly Veterans.... I shall quote, "newbie's tendency to assume the poly veteran is going to be confident and comfortable when the newbie goes out to play with a new lover." He suggested that us veterans are leaders in the community also and I wondered about that statement as it seems to be out there in my poly community where I am.

two fold question....
1. Is there a tendency towards Newbies thinking that veterans should be more capable of over coming some of the major poly issues such as jealousy... etc.?
2. How do you feel about the word "leader" as far as veterans in the poly community go?
Anyone want to be friends on Facebook?
