Other than my husbands gf, I haven't met any poly people in my area yet.
On here, however, I have been fortunate to have found many mentors. So many people who have just shared their experiences and then there's all the people that have actively supported me and so many others.
Redpepper and Mono have both gone out of their way to offer support when I had questions and issues that I needed input on. Grounded Spirit, TruckerPete, Loving Radiance, and countless other people have offered their advice and support to many of my posts.
Even if people can't relate specifically to something you've posted, you will often find support and virtual hugs, and effort to let you know that you're not alone. People reach out to one another on these forums, and to me that makes all of you mentors.
