Default New here and saying Hi

I've spent my whole adult life dreaming of being in a Poly relationship and I guess I've signed on in the hopes of seeing that there are people like me out there. I'm just so sick of not knowing where I fit. There's also a side of me that wants to see that poly relationships can work, with successful adults who are active in their communities and families. I've always felt like there has to be a choice between being poly or being successful in the rest of my life.

I see that there are many people looking for others to date and I'm not currently one of them. I'm in my late 30's and have been married for 13 years, monogamous for 18 years. I have three kids, (8, 12 and 15 yo), three dogs and a cat. I love keeping life busy! I am pansexual and am particularly attracted to bi and trans people.

I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Greetings Joy2B,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

You'll definitely find many like-minded people here, and many poly success stories. See http://www.polyamory.com/forum/showthread.php?p=257039 for my story, also Life stories and blogs in general for other people's stories. If you have any questions just let us know. General Poly Discussions and Poly Relationships Corner are good places to post.
