Default Article: 12 Questions People In Polyamorous Relationships Are Sick Of Hearing

This link to this article came across my (alt) FB feed today - not overly deep, but a worthwhile read, imo. There are ads on the web page but nothing too annoying.

Dramatis Personae:
Me: Al99, poly, heterosexual male, 50's
Becky: married to Al99, poly, heterosexual female, late 30's
Bouncingbetty: ldr girlfriend to Al99, poly, pansexual female, early 30's
Jill: local fwb to Al99, heterosexual female, early 50's.
Ben: Becky's medium-ldr bf, heterosexual male, 40's

My Introductory Post - An Unexpected Introduction to Poly.

Nothing overwhelming there, like you said ... plus each answer is from some individual's point of view, and may not be the same as other polys' answers. But it's nice to see poly getting some press, and the people they interviewed seemed pretty level-headed.

Personally I don't mind answering people's questions. Even if they're nosy questions, or the twelve questions in the article. Even if it's something you wouldn't ask a monogamist. People aren't freaking out over monogamy. I expect them to freak out over poly. A question is an opportunity to help them calm down.
