Default Hi, I'm Austin (hi, Austin!)

Stumbled on the page just googling "polyamory." The spellchecker for this thing is telling me polyamory isn't a word, by the way, which is very ironic.

I'm 25, 26 next month (birthday presents should be made out to cash, ty), and sorta new to the poly thing. I'm in the more-or-less rural south, so I'm really pleased to be able to meet some people, virtual or otherwise, who can understand this thing that's tearing me up lately.

I didn't hear the word "polyarmory" until about 6 months ago, and when I did, and figured the meaning to be what it is, it suddenly clicked for me. I've been poly my whole life, and until I knew it was a thing, I didn't know it. All the relationships I've been in in which I felt myself falling in love with someone else and feeling strange and guilty and weird were suddenly okay. My heart suddenly wasn't strange, it was just poly. I love the word, and I love to casually call myself 'poly.' I still can't tell a lot of my friends and family, but I'm getting there.

So what I'm saying, ya know, is hi =)
