I grew up in Maine (greater Portland area, woot!) and moved out here at age 20. The last decade has been amazing, and I'm pretty stoked to see what the next one has in store for me. I really like the person I have become, but maybe by age 40 I'll LOVE myself and will write Bette Midler-esque songs about my awesomeness. Here's hoping.
I've been polyamorous for 10 years with my boyfriend of 12 years, bouldergeist. If it's a new concept to you, I can pretty much guarantee that it isn't as scandalous as what you're imagining. :P We're a typical couple and we don't have crazy rules about dating. We just do it. Among other things, we find dating others helps to keep us happy and strong as a couple.
Also, I can bake some damned fine whoopie pies.
