Default New arrival

Hi All

Just arrived on here and I guess into the world of polyamory a bit by accident !! lol !

My wife decided this was for her, and after many months of supportive discussion, we have decided to try this approach to life

So far it seems a bit complex, and not the easiest thing in the world we have tried to do, though it's apparent even at this stage that there are benefits coming back into our relationship that I didn't expect to see, and that may tempt me to be a "fully committed" member of the polyamory family !!

I'll try not to fumble in the dark as I get used to the web site, so if anyone out there has the time / inclination to help a newbie, I won't be too proud to listen !! lol !!

It is mostly complex because we have not grown up surrounded by these ideas. So we have to figure out stuff on our own instead of relying upon society's norms to hint at the appropriate behavior.

Welcome to the forum and don't be afraid to ask or comment.

Default Thanks for the welcome

As my wife and I go down this journey, it's good to know others have travelled the same road, and that we can learn from their experiences

It's good to feel you are not alone !!

I'm sure there are loads of people in the UK just getting on with polyamorous relationships without the 'benefit' of a name for the experience . Most people I talk to about this have no problem with the concept "loving more than one person needn't = inability to commit" regardless of whether the P word ever gets mentioned.

Default I think that's oh so true !

One of the things I seem to be struggling with is starting a polyamory relationship, as there seem to be forums if you are looking for sex, or forums if you are looking for a traditional partner, but if you start to talk about polyamory, people seem to run a mile !!

The concept of loving and being comitted to more than one person, for many seems to be a step too far !!
