Default New from central Texas

Hello. I am new to the forum..I live in central Texas and I look forward to chatting with like-minded people.

I'm also relatively new to the lifestyle. I'm in my late 40s and about 20 years ago, I had a couple of polyamorous relationships. During the past few months, it has been an aspect of my life that I now wish to pursue more.

Thank you for the welcome. I'll admit, I'm a bit nervous. Not about my sexuality, but about the logistics of meeting people safely and discreetly. The last thing I want is for my private life to threaten my public life.

A little about me: I'm a woman in my late 40s. I have been in long-term relationships with men and women, individually. I am semi "out" as a bisexual woman. Those around me know, but I don't announce it with a megaphone. Haha!

I enjoy just about anything outdoors. We all have our happy place, and that is definitely mine.

The two polyamorous relationships I had were 20 years ago. The first was with a husband/wife couple. It was really only a sexual thing and it ended after a few weeks. I had nothing in common with them so a friendship wasn't in the mix.

The next relationship was with a lesbian couple. We were all friends. It lasted for a few months but it caused issues in their relationship so it ended. Plus, I was very busy establishing my career and my priorities were elsewhere.

Fast forward 20 years, during which I have dated men and women. One relationship lasted for a decade.

The past couple of years have been spent in quiet introspection. While I have dated casually, I have really enjoyed delving into my own interests and desires. It's amazing what you find when you look. 😉

Greetings TexasD,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

You've come to the right place to chat with like-minded people, have a look around and see what calls to you, and post your thoughts, questions, concerns. It sounds like you've had some poly experience in the past, now you can pursue more.

Sincerely,
Kevin T., "official greeter"

Notes:

There's a *lot* of good info in Golden Nuggets. Have a look!

Please read through the guidelines if you haven't already.

Note: You needn't read every reply to your posts, especially if someone posts in a disagreeable way. Given the size and scope of the site it's hard not to run into the occasional disagreeable person. 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!
