I'm open to having others & would LOVE to have my own primary.
But anyway -- he said something candidly last week -- a day or so later, when reliving that moment -- the light bulb of compersion went off! He was at a 4 day workshop out of town & I knew he'd connect with this one gal -- I just knew it -- finally - I realized - that didn't take anything away from what we have!!! So today, we're on the phone as he's driving back (7 hr drive) and he tells me they were intimate. It didn't bother me!!!!! He was a little shocked, I must add -- but I said I knew that would happen but i also know it doesn't change or take anything away from us. WOW!!!!!!!! I'm so proud of myself - I just had to share it with y'all!!!!

PS This is my first poly relationship!!!!!
Thanks for sharing that hun !
We alsways need more sharing of the good stuff. Too often we seem to get loaded down with the negative or complicated pieces and don't celebrate enough the great experiences and feelings !

Thanks again.

GS

We've got a pretty big poly community relative to our city size and there is a tonne of vegan/vegetarian interest so the there's a pretty healthy market catering to that.

Maybe just visit?
This is way off topic from the thread, so sorry, but yes, someday a visit would be lovely. I have a passport now even ;-).

And maybe someday we'll have a poly group in Albany! Really, I live in the middle of nowhere, but the capital of NY is not the middle of nowhere ;-).

I'm so glad that you all had a great time--fantastic!

You're very welcome, GS! You'll learn from me -- I prefer to share the good stuff -- I try to always find the good stuff!!! Even in the bad, there is good -- an opportunity for growth -- always good!!! But this is HUGE for me! I've never really been a jealous person but this is my first poly relationship. I've had angst, at times but I don't feel that any more! NOW -- it's my turn to allow him to show compersion!! hehehe!

Albany isn't THAT far from Ontario, Canada, lol. At least it's on the same coast!

OMG! I am SO glad I didn't have a drink in hand or mouth when I read that! roflmao!

I'm looking out the window & it is about as far from white as it's gonna get!

It was the perfect temp today which made my work day a lot more comfortable, lol.

You wanna talk far away from any place try Alaska! They say it's a State but I don't see any where where it's actually attached to the States! Same for Hawaii!
