My name is Jamie and I'm a polyaholic.... (just kidding). :P
No, actually I am very NEW to this as are a lot of people. Just a little background on me. I'm 9 years married to my highschool sweetheart and mother of four crazy boys. I live in Salt Lake City, UT and am inactive LDS. (mormon that hasn't been to church in a long time LOL). We are (or at least were lol) a monogamous couple. (LDS not FLDS lol) BUT in recent months I have fell in love with someone at my job. My husband was aware of our friendship and was ok with that. It increasingly developed into a romantic one though I have NOT slept with him. I recently told my husband that I had feelings for this other man and wanted to try a poly lifestyle. He was not thrilled but is willing to give it some thought. We have set some terms. Most I'm ok with but one I'm really not only cause it restricts me with my other love. However, I was willing to make the sacrifice for my husband as I really feel that asking him to try this was REALLY asking a lot of him.
This is all NEW territory for all involved. Its very exciting yet VERY scary. My husband's biggest fear is that we will fall out of love with each other and more in love with our partners. I can see that, I fear it too. I hope it will be a good experience and I look forward to making friends and seeking advice here along the way.
Feel free to ask me questions.
