Default Testing the waters...

Hi all,

After 6 years of marriage I am taking my first steps into the world of polyamory. My wife is resolutely mono, but after much discussion (some of it admittedly quite loud and tearful) she understands that as much as I love her and want to spend the rest of my life with her I find monogamy deeply unfulfilling and that was just making both of us miserable.

I've wanted this for so long and now it's a possibility I'm actually kinda scared! I mean, at some point I'll have to talk to Actual Women about Wanting To Go Out With Them... and I've never been much good at talking to women really (it's a miracle I met my wife, to be honest!). Really now taking deep breaths and telling myself not to rush it, or be too intense about it (because I can be very intense about stuff), and just relax.
