Yesterday we went to a social gathering primarily consisting of the people we also see at monthly poly meetings. It was nice to get to know people without the weight of polyamory hanging over my head. What I mean by this is that it was about just building friendships without a topic agenda which was nice. Redpepper, her husband and son and I were there and it felt very natural to present ourselves as chosen family, we get along so well.
We all had a little fun at my expense when "The Ethical Slut" book came up in the conversation. (Or Satan's Bible as I refer to it...I hate that book
) I am getting used to being the only mono person in our group and learning to have fun with it. This is a big step forward in integrating comfortably into what has been a very threatening environment for me.
Little steps on a long path with my incredible Lilo and the vision we all have for the future.
