Default Enjoying exploring

Hey there. I'm a single straight woman, 47, who for many years was in no relationships; now I'm enjoying being with two really lovely guys. One has long experience with nonmonogamy; for the other, as for me, it's new. I have to say that so far, the poly approach feels like home to me.

None of us lives in the same town. With rare exceptions I can only see each of them on the weekends. So there are logistical and communications challenges to the medium-distance thing, plus the challenges I bring with-- which mainly have to do with some fears around trust and intimacy, and my relative inexperience in intimate relationships, communicating well etc.

On the up side, I'm having the time of my life and feel incredibly fortunate!

Hello and welcome!

I am separated and flying solo on my poly journey, too. One term for people like us is "solo poly." Another (I just discovered the other day) is "free agent."

Feel free to visit and contribute to my thread for solos, here: Solo poly people - what's your ideal?
