Default Hey

My husband and I are recently new to poly. We tried an open relationship at one point, but it just didn't seem or feel quite right for either of us. After much research, conversations, and many late nights with my favorite wine, we came to the conclusion and understanding that poly was right for us. There have been times in my past where I've dated someone, and had similar if not just as strong feelings for someone else. It was always confusing and something that I surpressed in a way. You grow older (and somewhat wiser) and realize that they aren't going away, so you embrace them. One of my better decisions in life

Im looking forward to talking and getting to know some new people (near or far) for friendships, advice, laughs, or more.
