We are in a closed FMF V, with my Hubby as the hinge.

Hubby and I have been married for 13 years
GF has been with hubby for 1 year.
GF and I have been slowly building a friendship for 3 months.

We try to have dinner together once a month as a chance to visit and figure out our group calendar.

Open poly V - perhaps transitioning to W.

I have a husband and a boyfriend. Boyfriend has a new girlfriend who is married. Her husband is looking for another partner. Anyone is free to date if someone comes along but not actively "looking" - just keeping options open.
JaneQ(Me): poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (25+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (7+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic hetero girlfriend and BFF
MrClean: hetero mono male, almost lover-friend to me, ex-FWBs to SLeW, friends with MrS
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.

I am the hinge of a V. We tried the triad thing and my loves are sexually compatible but not cut out for a relationship.

I've been with my husband for 16 years and my wife for 16 months

I am a hinge of a V.

My husband is open for additional partners and looking, but not very actively.
Myself - I feel polysaturated with my two loves.
My OSO is mono and seems to be happy with me as his only partner.

In theory I want to keep things open for all possible opportunities in life; you never know whom you'll meet next...
