Hi, everyone.

I'm a 36 yo lesbian with two romantic partners. My primary partner and I (looking for better terminology, but "primary" works for now) have been together in an open relationship for almost ten years. We live together, along with our preschool-aged child. My girlfriend and I are a new couple; we dated briefly about twelve years ago and then reconnected last fall. I spend two nights a week at her place, and she's been spending another two or three nights a week at our place. The two of them get along well, and right now it's happy-happy-joy-joy.

I read a lot; just finished Tristan Taormino's Opening Up, and I'm reading Sex At Dawn now. Before that I read Michelle Tea and Lauren McCubbin's Rent Girl. I like music (going through an Otis Redding phase right now) and art, gardening, and cooking.

I'd love to get to know some more poly people. I sometimes struggle to balance self-care with caring for my two partners and my son. I feel guilty complaining -- after all, I'm thhe Queen Bee here, right?! -- but being the fulcrum in a V can be challenging. It will be nice to chat with people who know what I'm talking about.
