Point taken! I must admit, I do feel very inspired by Freetime. I have almost no relationship experience and I find myself wondering, if I should happen to end up in a poly relationship (deliberately or otherwise), will I struggle with these same feelings? I guess there's an alpha personality inside me that wants to rise up to the challenge and deliberately go looking for a poly relationship (and I love the idea of having not just one, but a group of people who are like family to me, know all of my secrets, and can support me and be supported by me).
But after reading Freetime's thread I am also cautious. I can't predict in advance what emotions I might experience, and it might end up being tougher than I had imagined. I hope that you are doing well, Freetime, and you should know that you've got another fan who is cheering for you to succeed!
