polyamory is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the full knowledge and free consent of everyone involved. (wikipedia.com)
Thanks for the definitions. Before coming to this forum, I had never heard the term polyamory before, so I just used what I knew.

Just thought I would point that out too.
I think you put it to words better than I could of and I'm well aware! I am glad you pointed this out, thank you.

good luck
I have definitely been going through and trying to read other posts, the good and the bad, and am trying to participate in the discussions. I am definitely here to learn!

Thank you so much for the response!
