I met Beloved, with whom I am in cahoots, in our graduate school dorm.

I met SW through mutual friends.

I met Runic Wolf in high school; our friends were dating at the time. He introduced me to Wendigo for the first time at a party at the house that a mutual friend shared with Wendigo's brother-in-law about 6 years ago. Though it took Wendigo's reminder that we actually met there (I was completely plastered and blacked out most of the night - first time I ever lost time drinking) as I thought that we met at a LARP event 5 years ago. Pretty Lady and I had glanced at each other for a year while we picked Wendigo up for LARP, gaming, and Kingdoms of Novitas weekends, but finally developed a friendship after Wendigo and I started our relationship.

Yep, intimate relationship, however people are wont to interpret it.

Strike of curiosity; how are you technically not doing the poly thing anymore? Just asking because someone I'm potentially interested in is in a similar stage in her relationship.

After trying it on for size a few times, I don`t believe it is what I 'feel' inside as either a identity or as a lifestyle.
While I have a ability to 'feel' love with more then one simultaneously, I do not care to partake in more then one intimate 'partner' type, relationship. Zero interest in that aspect currently.
Maybe one day that will change, but for now, this is where I am at.

I don't know why, but I love this alias you have for him. Oil Man.

I picture him as very masculine, barrel-chested, and strong, a kind of a cross between a sexy, burly auto mechanic wearing overalls over his bare chest, his face smudged with oil, and the Tin Man ("Oil Can, Oil Can."). What an imagination I have, hahaha!

I met my husband in a random public place (in a bank) and my girlfriend online, on a forum that wasn't poly-related. The first time we met face to face was just as friends, but it quickly turned into something more.

I met my boyfriend through a coworker friend, who brought me in as a third and then split. Our girlfriend we met online. I usually start out as being friends with my partners, it helps that my social circle is a pretty hedonistic bunch.

I meet partners mainly from other friends or in random public places. I met my partner at a Friday night Magic the Gathering card shoppe/bookstore.
