Hey, everyone,

I've recently begun talking about Polyamory with my boyfriend of 6 years. I've only just learned about it recently on the Steve Pavlina blog. My boyfriend says he feels a little uncomfortable about it, but that he doesn't want to lose my heart and wants me to be happy. He had actually gone outside our relationship about 3 years ago, and it's been a struggle for me to forgive him for breaking the monogamy. But now I see the value in having multiple, loving relationships as opposed to confining, controlling, jealous exclusive ones. And I find that when other people enter the equation, our physical relationship takes off. I'm happy to have found this forum as we try to make a decision on venturing into this new life.

Welcome to the boards, Barb.

I'll suggest picking up Tristan Taormino's bokk, Opening Up. I think you'll find a lot of information in there that will help you and your boyfriend to adjust.
