Default Poly group love.

We have been calling out group of partners/loves a "tribe" or a "constellation." It is beginning to spread out into other groups in our community, and them into us... proving that we are all linked. What do you call your group? If anything. I heard of one group that call themselves "squiggle"

I think we call ourselves "the Gang". Of course, it's just me, L and V.........No others at this time. Not looking for more either. Don't think I could handle any more.

"poly family".

We're not really "spreading" at this point.
There is a "poly-community"... but we're really not involved in it.

The large majority of people in it (that I'm aware of) either don't have kids at home, or they aren't open to their kids.
As we are completely family oriented, it results in a lot of the activities being inappropriate for us to attend.

But-I'm looking forward to getting more involved with the Victoria poly community.

Which is probably a little weird-going to a whole other country just to make more poly friends face to face, but I guess I am weird, so that's ok!

When I said "spread" I meant that my girlfriends husbands girlfriend has a new boyfriend that is also in a relationship with a friend of mine .... that kind of "spreading."

"the spread"... hows that for a name?!

Doesn't someone here use the word "tangle?" Can't remember who.

I like tangle. I also like tribe.

I haven't really stop to think of a term for my current relationship configuration. If I were going to stick with an alphabetical term, I guess I'm the center of a Y, in that I have Fidelio and two lovers, none of whom currently have other lovers. Nope. I don't like that; it's too much like I'm "the center" when we're all the center.

Tribe. I'm going with tribe. Tribe for the win!

I also like "tribe". Our girlfriend and I are both part Cherokee, so it kinda fits. LOL

No relationship there as of yet, just a date and some interest.
