Amazing how long this thread is. I think originally it was a request for people to state their gender and sexual preferences in their intros and posts, and then later it was mentioned that we should include that info in our profiles - just makes it easier to follow someone's story and respond if we know who identifies as what, and how we should address them.

oh! Thanks for explaining!...I read RP's entire thread before I decided to become a member. Your family's journey touched me on so many levels. Thank you Mono, Rp, and Derby for opening your personal journey. Honesty and communication seems hard to come by in this world.

Thankyou for welcoming me Derby!

Thankyou for being a much needed dose of refreshing honesty and depth! I sense that about you! There is more of that on this forum than I have ran across in the last twenty years put together (online and off)

We seem to have several people a day new to the board, start intro threads, and never state their age, gender ID, gender preference, marital status (single/partnered/married/divorced, and for how long), general area of the world/country they live.

It's so frustrating! Yes, it's nice to know you're new to poly, or confused, or experienced and happy, but it just seems an intro thread should say who you are, not that you're interested in poly. If you weren't interested in poly, you wouldn't be here.

You'll get different advice if you're 21 as opposed to 38, or if you're gay, male, transgendered, female, in a a conservative area or a liberal one, etc etc. Please give us something to go on.

Thanks!
