Default Iowa

Hi all,

I am a 23 yr old female and bi-choosy, he is 33 yr old male and straight. We have been married for 2 1/2 years. We are looking for both poly friends and partners. Iowa seems to have a non-existant poly community, so it would be great to get to meet other like-minded people. We have a power exchange based relationship and are looking for someone to form a long-term relationship with.

bella

I kind of view it as the difference in the way that I am attracted to men vs. women. There have been women that I have become close to and then become attracted to them. With men, there is more of an instant attraction or there isn't attraction at all

I have met and befriended three different people in the last decade that are poly. I even married one of them.
All in the Central Iowa area.

I think part of the lack of poly is not knowing/understanding the term; one of my friends just didn't know there was a term for the way she thought. And the other is fear that friends or family will react poorly. Sadly, the mid-west isn't the ideal place to be unique when it comes to fundamentals like family structure or sexual orientation.

Greetings fellow Iowans! 31 hetero male, here (although I'll be 32 in just a bit...). I live on the NW part of the state - right on the edge of the Nebraska and South Dakota state lines.

Not really sure if I'm mono or poly. On one hand, I've never thought of myself as poly, but then the whole idea is relatively new to me. On the other, I apparently have an atypical relationship with my exes. Once I start loving someone I hardly ever stop, so I prefer to remain friends with all of my former lovers, even if we find we don't work as a couple.
