Physical pain makes a lot more sense I think. You can see and physically feel exactly what hurts. You also have a vague timeline of how long it will take to heal. Emotional pain doesn't work the same way. It will get better. It is early days yet my friend. Take care.

Default Following up

Hey FT, I've been wondering how you have been doing. I see you are still on the rollercoaster. I have been too!

I apologize from being absent from the forum. Wife and I were down in FL for vaca. Had a great relaxing time and really enjoyed each others company. Lots of great discussions too.

We are still talking about taking the step to poly, but want to make sure we take baby steps.

This weekend we are going to sit down and write out some rules and boundaries to follow. We are also going to review and possibly sign the Poly contract.

I will keep everyone posted as we progress. I'm still here but moving at a snails pace!

I am still really amazed and the thoughtfulness and kindness of everyone on this board. It has certainly helped me as I move forward.

Have a great weekend FT and everyone else!

Default Weekend of fun and frolicking followed by....

The players:
Freetime. Husband to T and boyfriend to T2.
T wife of freetime, Girlfriend to M.
M Boyfriend to T, husband to T2
T2 Wife to M, girlfriend to FT.

The weekend was amazing T2 and M spent the weekend with us. I saw harry Potter, the play Wicked, and 2 women having...... a great deal of fun. (I'll leave it at that.) as a side note being in love with both made it all that much better.

Seeing T and m together all weekend caused me no grief, jealousy or fear. I saw them being passionate, loving each other and having a great time. I was Happy for T and M, truly joyful that T was so in love and having fun.

T did break her toe though and ended up in the hospital Saturday night, but Sunday still turned out to be a fantastic amazing awe inspiring day.

We laughed, we talked we connected. M and I got closer and much more comfortable with each other, which is an accomplishment in and of itself.

T2 and I had many a...bonding experience and thoroughly enjoyed each others company. Walks, Talks, kissing and laughing, it was a most enjoyable time.

T and I also had time alone, which is new for us. Normally when T2 and M come over we split into separate couples, and don't spend much time together. Being able to spend time with T as well really helped make the weekend perfect for me.

We had a few challenges, but those were the normal kind of relationship events you see when you start to spend more time together.

I'm not sure I understand ... Are you upset too? And why is it not also T2's responsibility to communicate these things with you? How did all of this fall on M?

It seems like a bump, but not a big one. Not worth throwing everything away over, unless there's more to it than this.
