Has there been any conversation about poly relationships between you and your husband? Is he familiar with the term and concept?
How did you find out about poly? Did you read an article or see something on TV or read a book on poly? Maybe whatever means you learned about poly, you could show your husband and just say something along the lines of, I kind of found this interesting....
And let the conversation grow from there. He may show some interest or he may dismiss it altogether not feeling it is right....
Look forward to hearing how thing go once the conversation starts...

Greetings Polylove6,
Welcome to our forum. Please feel free to lurk, browse, etc.

JustUs gave good advice; try that and feel your way along.

For additional insight on this type of thing, I really like the following Ppercs post: How do I tell people?

You may also find it helpful to get the book "Opening Up" (by Tristan Taormino), and have you and your husband read it together and discuss your thoughts and feelings as you go along.

Please keep us posted on how things go. Hope these ideas and suggestions help!

Sincerely,
Kevin T., "official greeter"

Notes:

There's a *lot* of good info in Golden Nuggets. Have a look!

Please read through the guidelines if you haven't already.

Note: You needn't read every reply to your posts, especially if someone posts in a disagreeable way. Given the size and scope of the site it's hard not to run into the occasional disagreeable person. Please contact the mods if you do (or if you see any spam), and you can block the person if you want.

If you have any questions about the board itself, please private-message a mod and they'll do their best to help.

Welcome aboard!
