I am polyamorous and currently in an honest, open relationship with Daring2Explore. This is not subject to change so if you want to meet me you will eventually meet or talk to her.
No, I'm not cheating.
No, I'm not giving myself permission to play around. In fact, I encourage her to do the same.
No, you won't have to date both of us.
Yes, she is okay with this and will have full knowledge. If you're interested in anything more than a friendship, you will need to be okay with this as well.
I am quite aware that this is not for everyone and to those I wish you all the very best of luck finding the monogamous relationship of your dreams.
Those of you experienced with polyamory and open-relationships are welcome to reply although it's certainly not a requirement to just be friends. My lover and I can respect the beauty in each other's differences and we hope you can as well. Ideally, I'd like to find a secondary for myself or a couple who fits our diverse interests and personalities.
What is more important is that you're sweet, non-judgmental, open-minded, and adventurous. While I have no problem explaining what the poly lifestyle means to me and what I want, I'm allergic to judgmental people and those of you who feel compelled to comment negatively about various forms of consensual non-monogamy has probably never had an honest relationship in their life. It takes a great deal of trust and commitment. It's complicated enough dating one person, so it really depends on your own experience and comfort level - I'm perfectly happy dating one-on-one as long as you understand there will be no secrets.
I'm interested in forming meaningful relationships with others, whether that relationship leads to chat pals, serious romance, casual relationships, or simple unbiased friendship.
I believe relationships should be about the journey, not the destination. They should be about sharing who you are with someone, not about possession. I'm not looking to get married - I've been there already. I don't want children - my six year-old daughter and my partner's kids keep me well-occupied. I am mature and respectful, complicated, sensual, charming in the right company, intellectual but not pretentious, and very open to new people and new experiences. I do not have an agenda, nor am I seeking one who has. I love sex but I prefer connection over friction anytime.
I'm not opposed to outside relationships and dating, but a triad or quad with loving, affectionate couples and singles is not out of the question. I'm always looking for new friends, so you're always welcome to say hello.
