I was met by my lover who looked like a God or Michelangelo's statue of David. He had blond hair. There was some sort of celebration going on to honor me for some reason. (I was a dark haired beauty.) There was a long table loaded with food, mostly fruits and veggies. There were large pillows everywhere, or were they bean bag chairs?

Anyway, my love brought me a gift. It was a beautiful dark haired man. I had never really met him, but it was love at first site! We didn't just have sex. We made love. It was real love. It seemed that everyone had a great deal of love for each other in that place. Some had very special long term relationships.

When I woke up I found myself in a very different kind of world. Too bad. I liked that one a lot. It seemed so real. Maybe it exists somewhere...

I'm not in any relationship but I know what real polyamory is ~ even though I have only experienced it in a dream.
Lovely sexy dream! However, being poly is not just about making love. Wish it was sometimes. But it's also about work, compersion for your partner's other lovers, and hurt feelings, and doing the dishes, and taking care of kids and pets, and and and...

About me:
I have found that being single does not stifle my spirit like marriage does. I was married twice and both times it smothered my inner joy and peace.
I am also glad to be out of my stifling 30 year marriage to a straight vanilla guy. There was a lot of good there, but we grew apart. Now I am with a partner who's always been poly and kinky, we're both queer, and I am so much happier!

I'm 55. Got separated from the ex over 2 years ago. Be happy to exchange notes on living poly.
