. It does help, though, to read what other folks are going through. Like BoringGuy, I like to see what the pitfalls are, so I can try to avoid them before we encounter them.
We don't always avoid them, but we can learn ways to deal with them, and avoid repeating them.

Once i identify certain individuals whose advice i value (such as my two partners, and the "late" Autumnal Tone), i don't even have to ask them the questions because i know what the answers will be.

True... And that helps quite a bit.

It's tough to find people in my particular position (mono who *didn't* come into poly via a preexisting partner - someone who started a poly relationship at the same time as their partner/metamour), so when I see anything that resembles our situation I definitely take notice.

Hm. Makes me think strongly about starting a blog thread for anyone else in my situation, since it'd be nice for people to feel like they're not anomalies. Thanks, BG.
