It sounds like you and your wife have a deep, supportive relationship, and that you have a solid hold on your own feelings as well as as a desire to encourage and help each other. That kind of foundation is priceless!

Well I blew it. I let my fear control me and J has given up on trying to date other men. I feel very guilty and like a failure. I freaked out when she wanted to go out twice in one weekend. Shame does not begin to describe how I feel.

Well, I freak out too when my husband schedules too many things in one weekend, especially if it's a last minute addition. That has NOTHING to do with Poly and more to do with feeling like you're being neglected and pushed aside. Appologize and talk it out with her. Don't let either of you make decissions based on knee jerk reactions. Treat it as a learning experience, so you have one more thing to add to the boundry list (only one date per weekend for now). Keep in mind that boundries can warp and change as your comfort levels adjust, but it does require communication.
