Back when our youngest child turned 4 yrs old and was regularly finally sleeping through the night, my ex and I had a 2nd honeymoon. We finally had time and energy for rekindled feelings of romance and desire. It was great, we were both on such a sexual high.

At the same time, I got a HUGE crush on one of our best friends, a younger single man who lived right across the street. It was thrilling and yet very disturbing and difficult, as I didn't recognize I was poly at the time...

There's no lying in polyamory!

I'm a 58 year old woman with 2 partners:
miss pixi, my live-in gf, 36 (together since Jan '09)
Ginger, bf, 61, married, lives nearby (together since Jan '12)

First of all, way to go with a headline that grabs the readers.

It is all-pervading, this opening of the chest, this spine-straightening awareness of beauty all around.

I think it is essential. Every day I look for ways to give out all this love I have in my life to other people. It's easy. People are starving for love all around you. This way, I feel strong enough to receive more. If I couldn't share it with others, there is no way that I would deserve it. Run with it, man. Find ways by listening hard and breathing slow.

I've had so many emotions recently, I feel like I need a vacation from them for a week or so. Do something boring or analytical for awhile.
Number one item on the agenda. You. I know the euphoria is hard to disengage from because it's, well..., euphoria. I am grateful for silence, repetitive motion, and being granted space in between earth-shaking emotions to get my feet planted for the next sweet blow. Yup, I hear ya.

I go to a retreat center as often as I can which has been at most twice a year for several years now. It is so quiet. That has helped me immensely with lots of situations but mostly as a commitment to spend time with myself, sorting out the bullshit from the jewels as I walk in silent awe, watching the day all the way through.

I think everyone is "poly" they just might not realize it, or they suppress it

Some have known this as poly NRE. Its love, awakinging and passion for the notion of poly.

Its not true that everyone is poly, but its delightful that you have discovered that you are.
