It doesn't make you a freak, just someone who has figured out what she wants. This is the right forum to talk about issues with being new to poly. There are a few threads on finding people in these forums.

Doesn't make you a freak at all. I know how you feel though. The pressures of society tell you you are only supposed to love one person at a time and if you fall in love with someone else then you must not love who you're with. Well, that's how I felt and sometimes am still made to feel so it's always a struggle to tell myself it's ok. Anyway, I'm also in Australia and in a relationship. If you ever want to talk feel free to message me.

Yes, this is a site to discover and talk about poly. I suggest you read around a bit and see what you find of interest. Do a search for topics that interest you, look in the tags, and then ask questions. Good luck

Don't feel like a freak, do a search for polyamory in your region and you can probably find a group in one of the bigger cities (There are some Australian based people posting on the Dating & Freindships > Asia pages so you're not the only one on the site.

I'm over the ditch in NZ

I suggest read some posts, some articles talk to some people and see how things go from there.

I too am in Australia.
I was exceptionally lucky - I fell into a relationship with Shannon (Shannon was a fuckbuddy initially, it developed from there), and fairly early on I met someone who was drunk, into me, and decided to introduce me to the concept of poly. We had great conversation that night, I wrote down the word, and went and looked it up the next day. It was amazing to find a word that described ME!

Goodluck through the initial stages of your journey
