I'd love to get to know people who are into the lifestyle and willing to show newbies around or at least help us be prepared for what to expect in the NYC scene. I'm only interested in friendships so not unicorn hunting or trying for hook ups. The best relationships are those I fall into, not those I seek out. Anyone else in NY willing to make friends? I know we're not known for our friendliness, but I've always been told I don't belong in the city.
My advice would be to sign up to one or more of the NYC Poly Yahoo groups at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Polyamorous_NYC_A/ or http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nyc-poly/ or the web-based one at http://www.poly-nyc.com/.

Get a "feel" of the groups based on what gets posted, and see if there are people there with whom you feel you resonate. Knowing a little about some of the names involved can really help break down that nasty feeling of "here's a wall of people that I don't know!"

Just to let the New York Residents know - we have a "Social Group" on here called "Polyamory New York" which you can join. I'd like to make sure that we can do things like pool our resources to get a comprehensive list of poly resources in the state, and to let people know of events and such-like.

You can find it by going to the "Community" link on the menu bar and picking "Social Groups".

Oh? My little forum menu bar says "User CP", "FAQ", "Community", "Caldendar", "New Posts", "Search", "Quick Links" and "Log Out" - do you see something different? On mine it's blue background with white writing.

If you can't see it, then you should be able to find the Group from my profile.

Okay, now I see it. It was hiding in plain sight! I was looking for something to the left, not across the top.

Thanks!

I hate it when they hide like that!

BTW, I want to say that I'm all for networking, connection, and relationship.

And at the same time I'm wondering what value there is per se in identifying as "NY Polys" given that the state is so big and spread out.
