Aloha! Polyamory is something that immediately struck a strangely familiar chord with me when I first learned about it. Familiar from where? I have no idea. Perhaps it's a shared philosophy that speaks to some people as a way of bringing more vigor and, of course, more love into their lives. I consider myself a pretty down to earth person who is liberated enough to try and at least meet others who share this life. I feel that my relationships with women have been healthy, and I say that after leaving a 14 year marriage. I'm ready to start a new, but not sure how. Look forward to anything and everything.
Aloha, Marc

Welcome aboard.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

Default Thanks

Thanks for the welcome. Yup, pretty sure what poly is, just want to meet others to connect that want to explore the same. I live on the north shore of O'ahu and enjoy staying in shape, being around the water, drinking red wine and watch'n the sunset on the beach each night. This life is a blessing. Polyamorous sounds more like a dream to me, as it is, at least, an ideal of how I would view the monogomous relationship that I would want. So I put the dream out there and continue to dream BIG.
