Default I'm very pleased to be amongst your company.

My name is Jim. I am very happily married to nancyfore. We are a poly couple. I am 41.

I suppose i was poly long before i knew there was a name for it. I am fortunate to have found a wonderful wife who has patiently educated me and encouraged me. I was reluctant to embrace it and act on it, at first. I believed that i believed in monogamy. I had practiced well for many years forcing myself into a mono shaped box, and feeling guilty that i wanted more. The excerpt below is from a poem called "Courage" by an unknown author that strikes me as appropriate;
Courage is the strength to stand up When it's easier to fall down and lose hold. It is the conviction to explore new horizons When it's easier to believe what we've been told.

My reluctance has given way to a new understanding of myself, and i feel complete and valid. I am poly and very proud to say so.

I am grateful to have a wonderful and strong partner to explore with. I am grateful for the lessons i learn every day. I am grateful for the partners we have each had, and the ones we will have. I am grateful for this forum, and the wisdom of its contributors.

Thank you all for all you provide. Thank you for being kind and welcoming. Thank you for being like me.
