Default Introducing Kevin T

Greetings. I am brand new to this site, and haven't even done any lurking (yet). Well, unless you count the site guidelines, and I did just briefly look over the glossary thread (and bookmarked it, as I am something of a glossary fiend).

I am one of the two guys (arms/legs) in an MFM vee (or emotional triad, as the two guys have a good though platonic friendship with each other). We live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and have been living here since 2008. We have been together as a poly unit since 2006, and we handfasted in 2009.

We don't lead a very exciting life, but we are glad the bumps and tears of our early years together are behind us. We have traditional families spread out across various places, e.g. Michigan, Utah, and Washington State. We are mostly in the closet, with maybe one friend (in Michigan) and one brother (and his wife) having a clue about our relationship. Those few exceptions are good at keeping their lips zipped, so our secret is safe for now.

I won't get too long-winded in this post, but if you have any questions, just let me know.

I'm glad to be here.
Sincerely,
Kevin T.

Welcome!

Happy you're here. I'm the F in a MFM vee (emotional triad). (sort of) I've known them for nine years now, and we just started being a vee last December.

It's a work in progress.

Welcome to the forum from the other side of the country!

I'm in a 4 year FMF "V" and I think most of my life is fairly unexciting, with some notable exceptions. I actually think that there are a large number of poly folks who are "just getting on with it" and who never see a reason to sign on to forums or even make themselves known outside of a small circle of folks.

I believe you're right about that.

I don't think I noticed your signature line when I posted before.

I LOVE it!

Glad to meet each of you.
