I'm glad you are not going away AJ. There is so much to learn on this forum. I am really glad that you are able to take baby steps with your partner. It sounds like she is moving very slowly and that is a good thing.
Is she on here or reading up? I would love to talk to her too as I soooo remember where I was at with all this when I told my ex-wife that I was interested in men still.
I really feel for your situation as it is so much like how we started out. It has made me so proud of my journey and all the work I have put in. I continue to feel blessed and fortunate to be so loved too.
I am fiery when I hear that people are being mistreated because they aren't standing up for themselves, and when they are mistreating others because either the other doesn't know what is going on or is unable to stand up for themselves....
My ex-girlfriend used to call me a kind of poly super hero that protects the weak and those going down a path of destruction. I don't know about that, but it made me feel that I am at least a voice of some kind of reason in the poly world....
I know most of the time people don't want to hear it, but most of the time people appreciate that I can sum up stuff that they are not seeing and kick them in the ass at the same time. Besides, if you don't want a real opinion then don't start a thread I figure.
I don't have any reason to do that with you AJ, you are kicking your own ass, and treating each other with the respect you both deserve. No wonder you have had such a successful relationship so far! I'm so glad to hear that you are both working on making it even better and stronger! Nothing like a shot of poly to do that.... if it doesn't kill you it will make you stronger and even more in love.... I guarantee it!
