Default Hi there

Hiya.
Twenty-seven year-old female, currently living on the West Coast of the U.S..
I am straight as far as I know and I suppose single and in an open relationship of sorts with a guy who is poly and who is married to a poly female. Length of being lovers / in a relationship of sorts is roughly four/five months. I have known them for about two years, and was friends with him prior to moving beyond friends. I am friends with his wife, however not as strongly as with him. I had very little to no awareness or information about polyamory prior to meeting them.

I say as far as I know, because lately I have had dreams involving sexual activities with females.

I came here in search of other poly people, in an effort to relate to others and understand their experiences and gain a better working knowledge and understanding of the nature of polyamory. As other than my lover and his wife, I only know of a few other poly people - however my connection with them is only as an acquaintance and I would find discussing relationship particulars with them a bit awkward; as they are good friends with my lover and his wife.
I have read The Ethical Slut and have heard good things about Opening Up which is on my list to read next. Though I have found at times that some things work out much better in theory than in practice. Especially where emotions are involved in the moment, they can jumble up what I read when I was clear headed. xD

I love spending time outdoors - whether it be hiking, camping, etcetera.
Reading, playing games (video, board, card), painting/drawing, cooking.. favorite pastimes.

Hi,

I know when I first started thinking... what is this... I thought sure I have to be the only one out there. but isn't it wonderful to know you are not the only one out there? I have found this forum so wonderful and a great comfort. Welcome to the boards!

Gotta agree with that. It's nice to know that you aren't alone in your way of thinking.

Thanks for the welcomes.
It is indeed comforting to know others are out there.
As well that what I have and am experiencing is nothing new in the grand scheme of things.
