Default So many feelings..

I am an agnostic ex-Christian living in a monogamous lesbian marriage. My wife was aware of my poly-ness before we married. She is not secure enough to share me longterm, though she is okay with me having a short-term 'freebie'. She knows I have been in love wih a man for years. He is a friend of hers - well, when they're not bickering jealously over me. To further complicate matters, the man is a public figure who rushed into a terrible relationship as a way of coping w his emotions when I got married. I didnt join this forum to be ridiculed or called a liar, so please don't dismiss the celebrity factor - they are humans too and subject to the full range of normal emotions. I will never namedrop, I simply need a safe space to vent. I am also in the process of falling in love w a coworker who happens to be married and who is deadset against anything but lifelong monogamy.
Whew! That was a lot to unload in my first post! Thanks for reading this

Oh, you should feel right at home here, LOL! One thing that is fairly certain - poly stories aren't simple, most of the time.

The world opens up... when you do.
