Hello and welcome sohuman and cochordian!
I am very new to polyamory myself. One thing I can tell you is that there are a lot of people here with amazing success stories and very helpful advice.
The main thing I have found here so far is understanding. Not complete understanding, but a much better idea of what it is like for my husband (he's the poly one) and ways that others have made a poly relationship work.
I have been helped a lot by reading the posts under the tags: "boundaries," "cheating," and "compromise."
