Default What the French, Toast?

Hi, so... hi.

I'll just jump right in without knowing where I'm headed... maybe I should focus on keeping this an introduction and not the place to explain everything.

My DH & I are very new to the poly lifestyle. We have a V, where I am seeing another woman. He is not sure about how his feelings on how things are progressing, and I am not sure how to help him through it. So I hope to find some good information here. Also, my GF is a lesbian and this is her first time in a poly relationship, so I am hoping to find some helpful info to share with her because I know this is new territory, so to speak, for all of us.

Anyway, the rest of the story... I'm currently a (non-traditional) student at a school in a very rural/conservative part of the Midwest, my DH & I have a 3-year-old son, he (DH, not son) is working on his Master's, and when we are done with school we are ready to move back to civilization!

One of the hardest things about identifying as poly when we are here is the lack of supportive social networks. I mean, no one has had a problem with my relationship w/my GF, but DH runs in to the typical problem of women who are willing to be with him if he's cheating but not if he's in an open relationship. Grrrr... so, it would be nice to find some local/nearby poly social groups for like-minded conversations.

I guess that's enough of an introduction... looking forward to meeting you all!
