My experiences with motherhood and polyamory. RTFM: The User Manual. By Cunning Minx, on April 19th, 2011 If you’ve attending my Poly and Single: Poly Dating 101 class, you know I’m a big fan of writing one’s own personal user manual.

Being Poly and Single: For Newbies

I’m finding, increasingly, that that’s me. I mean, I’m very open to where my romantic and sexual relationships might take me, and the more I date online, the more I realize that this means deciding that I’m also open to dating people already in open relationships. But, as a single gal open to poly couples, I need a little bit of guidance, because making a wedge of yourself can be tricky. My research brought me to a golden little podcast on a brilliant website called PolyWeekly.com and after listening to the entire – long – recording so you don’t have to, I’ve summarized some very useful information for you all here. First off is the question of where to meet couples looking for a third or one person in a relationship seeking a secondary or tertiary partner. -You have the right to spend time alone with your lover.

Fuck Yeah Polyamory

This is really the first blog (other than one of my own) that I felt like I could comfortably share my own poly story. :) My fiance and I have been together for over a little more than 3 years now, and we had been discussing opening up our relationship for the past year and what it would mean. As we got into 2012, I met the guy who would become my now-boyfriend and that was an interesting experience. At first we were on shaky terms with the concept, we talked a lot about it and established some temporary “rules” in order to make it a more comfortable transition.

As time passed and tensions eased, we all got comfortable with each other and I am very happy to say that the three of us are fantastically happy! Both of them have been encouraged to date others if they wish, and I’ve been on the receiving end of details varying from PG to X-rated. Lots of love! Polyamory?
