Re: the word "hinge" ... it is standard poly parlance that a hinge is a person in a (three-person) V. The hinge is romantically involved with both other people in the V, but those two people (the legs/arms/ends of the V) are only platonically associated with each other.

If all three people in the group are romantically involved with each other, then there is no "hinge person" and the whole group is (usually) called a "triad" ("triangle" and "delta" are also used). This concludes your terminology lesson for today.

I hope you, your friend, and your husband blossom into a lovely V and that Polyamory.com can lend a hand in getting you there.

Sincerely,
Kevin T.

Thanks! I got confused by the "V" part. I assumed they meant the fact I have a vagina. Lol *facepalm*

Haha, well there is the expression "V day" which also means something a bit different.
