So I think I've been here before but maybe it was just a dream.
I've been poly for a while, just in denial for many many years which caused the loss of many many relationships because I would rather loose them than hurt them. So until I realized there was actually a term for what caused my happiness, I was unaware.
I've been publicly poly now for almost two years. It's worked out for the most part and when it hasn't it's because of a lack of communication, on his end. Either way I'm here to meet people of like mind.
