Default Hello, new to Poly

Hello, you can call me Hadashi, I'm from Northern California.

After years of confusion I finally recognized I was poly and bi. The bi part I knew, the poly part was news to me. Both parts were a surprise to my wife. We're still working on that part. It's been hard for her; she has had poly-like impulses in college, but she's been very mono with me for 19 years.

For my part I've indicated what I want, but I'm being patient. I find that I don't usually get what I want, but I do usually get what I need. So, I'll just lay back and let life move at it's own pace.

Otherwise, I'm a 40-ish male living near San Francisco. I work in the computer industry. My wife is a writer. We have 2 children and 2 cats. I'm all about hiking (barefoot, usually), restoring old cars and nearly anything computer related. I'm a big fan of Macintosh computers, but I promise not to preach. And I hope to one day learn to play my guitars properly.

I recently was approached by a mono in a surprise mono/poly relationship; she needed help on her approach as she really didn't want to leave her husband but wasn't sure she could handle his poly-ness. Eventually she managed to talk him into (poly neutral!) marriage counseling. It felt GREAT to help someone - maybe I can do that once I know what I'm doing.

Glad to make your acquaintance.

Welcome, nice to meet you! My boyfriend lives in the Bay area, too. Haven't been there yet but I'm hoping to visit him next year.

Good luck with everything

This confuses me...

(Sorry, couldn't resist... welcome to the forum!)
Actually, it's both big and clever.
