I would think that in a big city like Chicago, you would have a wider range of polyfolk there than just the geeks and nerds. In NYC, most of the poly people I've met are into kink and BDSM and all that so-called sex-positivity stuff, but I occasionally meet a few non-kinksters.

Have you checked out any local poly groups? I'll bet there's more than just one.

I live in Central Illinois, I love video games but I have a great many other hobbies as well. I love the outdoors, camping, hunting, etc. I much prefer a campsite to a hotel, and I am not really into kink. My hobbies change with the seasons, possibly more frequently than that. I have a problem. Lol.

Having video game and sci-fi or nerd hobbies doesn't mean we are going to make you partake if you don't like it.

I consider myself a nerd because I love stuff like video games and sci-fi shows, board games etc...but at the same time I am very much into fitness, I spend most of my days outside right now while the weather is nice and I would much rather be camping than in some stuffy hotel (if the weather is nice, and I have a camper. I'm not a fan of tents, I'll admit that lol) I enjoy both sides of life and I think finding a balance between sedentary and active is essential. Not all nerds spend their waking hours glued to a screen ;-)

I know their must be others like me out there who are looking for a poly relationship. Any advice or guidance would be great.
I live in Chicago and I'm not nerdy. Send me a PM if you like.
