Default Hello

Hi all, I've been lurking around here for a while and really appreciate "hearing" about the experiences of others, so I thought it was only polite to introduce myself. I've been married for around 8 years, pretty much always struggled with monogamy but only more recently finally "opened up" my marriage. I'm lucky now to have an incredibly wonderful other partner (boyfriend, for lack of a better term), and things are better than ever in my marriage. DH is still trying to figure out what (if anything) he's personally interested in pursuing outside of our marriage, and BF isn't really romantically involved with anyone but me at the moment, just has a few casual things going on (with people who know about me and our situation, etc.). We've had our minor bumps like anyone else, but overall things are going fantastic and smoothly for everyone.

Welcome aboard.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
