This is so true. I found it to be so when I was dealing with my attraction to women and figuring out if I was lesbian or straight or bi. That was a heck of a journey and in the end I knew I just had to be me. But, I have kind of been like that most of my life. Ultimately, who gives a fuck what others think if I am happy? Oops, pardon my french!

Hi OneUncagedBird,
I saw you posted on one of my threads recently. I didn't realize you were new on here, too. I never thought I'd find this forum or even put a name to my thoughts either. It all makes sense now. I'm learning and growing. I am in a situation where my husband now knows of how I feel but has asked that I not bring it up again, or we will face the Big D because he can never share himself with another woman. He refuses counseling and is avoiding the book study I've presented to him. I love him dearly, but this site is my outlet until I make future decisions.

I hope you find what you are looking for on this site.

Erin

I welcome you here. I'd say feel free to send a PM my way, but you seem to have already. ^_^ I hope the site is helpful for you as it was for me.

I've found some great advice and a lot of information on who I am and why I am polyamorous. The reasons I feel this way. I have also felt welcomed by others who share the same and similar feelings. =]

Getting to sneak my convos on this forum makes me feel not so alone in my thoughts.

It's 11:15 pm here in Illinois. What time is for you?

Ah, Illinois. I have a friend over there in a small town called Farmer City? Over here in snow-filled England, it is 05:18. A good 6 hours ahead. =]

I have nooooo idea where Farmer City is, unless of course if that's a joke because we have soooo many corn fields! ha ha

We experienced our first snowfall of the season tonight... just in time to pull out my little Cmas tree

How can you still be awake at 5 am - unless of course if you don't have a job, are in college, or are getting ready for work! I'm ready to hit the hay (pun intended) soon myself ::yawns::

No, it's definitely a real place, not so strangely, with a lot of crop harvest too, including corn. ^_^

First snowfall here was about a week ago. I can't rmemeber the last time it snowed in November. The first time it snowed on christmas in many years last year... and they say the world is getting warmer? Just take a look at this thick snow! >.<

As for being up at half 5 in the morning... I'm 18, no job, just left college and am just a night time person by nature. I generally sleep through the day. Even when I try to regulate my sleeping pattern like these regular humans, I still bounce right back to being awake through the night. It just suits me I guess.
