Default Hello - First Post


I just found this site a few days ago. We are a poly family that have been together for 14 years. We are the odd ones in that three of us have lived together for over 12 years now. There is a fourth member of our family who does not live with us but we wish she did.

We live in a small northern Alberta town and while we don't advertise our relationship we don't hide it either. We have successfully raised 4 children in our family. They are now all adults and happily living their own lives.

Please contact the mods if you do (or if you see any spam), and you can block the person if you want.

If you have any questions about the board itself, please private-message a mod and they'll do their best to help.

Welcome aboard!

Welcome Kyra! Glad to have you, and your years of experience, join the forum.

Many posters come to the boards when they are new and struggling, so people get the impression that "long-term" poly is not possible. One theory is that settled long-term compatible configurations are busy living their lives and raising the kids.

Feel free to tell your story if you feel comfortable (we have a blogs section if you are so inclined). Chime in on any thread where you feel so inclined. Love to have a new voice!
JaneQ(Me): poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-always-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (26+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (8+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic hetero girlfriend and BFF
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
