I independently invented polyamory(except compersion)then pioneered Romance-friends™ http://1.JotHere.... &hv been promoing&publishing-on both since~1997,&despite being born romantically-jealous -as traditional romance is killer-contradictory!
(1) via http://www.meetup.com/find/?keywords=polyamory&x=0&y=0&country=us&zip=92869 fr which I see this is the largest polyamory in the county+most open! (2) My 1st Meetup group I ever founded was Pasadena Polyamory in 2004,but I had dropped_heavily_promoting poly since it was growing extremely slow,likely since,starting w/ its name, it was an extremely hard sell(much harder than notably better Romance-friends™ http://1.JotHere.com/KU1WSF ); then I saw Showtime announcing their new "Polyamory" reality TV series which told me polyamory was finally starting to become known by the mainstream and I sensed Showtime's implicit endorsement really promote polyamory, so I immediately joined this my local poly group, with my 1st mission to offer & promote group watch&discussion of the show http://1.JotHere.com/MAPoly to all local adults (not just members) to get more mainstream involved (and I predicted right: the show increased Polyamory Google searches 3x http://1.JotHere.com/3359#M87HWF !).
MHRPXP: Currently not romantic with anyone MHRQ7C: Currently searching for romance MHRPY5: Since inventing the term & concept ~2005, the only romance I do is Romance-friends™ http://1.JotHere.com/KU1WSF , romance-form for the 21st century and similar but notably better than polyamory http://1.JotHere.com/3501#M8M7RQ . MHRQN3: Speaking about romantic relationships, check out my publication (dedicated romance-friends™ terms M1WROM http://1.JotHere.com/2754#M1WROM), a romance-friends™ relationship contract which I 1st published right as I joined this group; in particular I'm searching I'm seeking alpha testers (and of course using it myself); if interested, just reply-post on that else contact me.
*discussion parties with dancing & good talk *dating (not casual); however scratch this if prohibited by the group "Read more about us" saying "It is NOT alright if you are looking for a date." however my guess is the author doesn't mean that else consider rethink/reword as it's very hard to find someone, especially women, accepting of polyamory so what better place TO do it RESPONSIBLY than in a polyamory group? IMHO, a polyamory group should not prohibit but facilitate responsible dating & matchmaking, so my guess is one just want to prohibit the disrespectful & irresponsible. *a community which enforces good romance rules, as kind of suggested by the tagline of my site http://LoveRules.Info is "LOVE Rules so Love RULES™." (also thanks for asking and thanks for running this group!)
I should hope there are NOT individual definitions of something this important (for instance, as is done for "God"), as then that creates confusion & argument (as it does for "God"). For me, I'm happy with the definition given at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyamory : "the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved." So do you instead mean to ask, "How would you like your polyamory?" For me, my latest definition would be say (dedicated romance-friends™ terms M1WROM http://1.JotHere.com/2754#M1WROM) with 0 to ~3 partners.
Yes, I am its primary author --and I could never stand myself being a hypocrite :-)
This group's really coming alive in 2012, starting with Group Watch & Discuss of "romantic organizations especially, watch & discuss Showtime’s series “Polyamory: Married and Dating” http://1.JotHere.com/3359#M70UEM !
Hey Michael! Thanks for the random hour long chat at Barnes & Noble. Yes, too bad I missed the presentation, but I'm sure I'll make it out to a future meetup at PeopleSpace. Also, thanks for including the link of your pubs. I think you covered a majority of what you wrote while we had our chat yesterday. By the way, why would you recommend against a "badass" persona? You don't think I could pull it off? Haha.
How's Kubuntu treating you? I went with plain Ubuntu and started playing with software defined radio. Where are you these days?
Hi DestinyArchitect! yes, we welcome allies of any sexual orientation. There are gay and straight members, for instance, who have learned a lot about bisexuality from their participation in the group and come to our events because they enjoy the activities and enjoy our company :) so no worries! and welcome!
Hello there! Sorry couldn't make it the last time to the OC RSVP meetup. next meet up is a must attend. catch up soon Destiny and hope my pizza will still be warm LOL!
I don't know what what sort of "consent" you think I need, or what "warning" I need to give in order to start my own meetup group. Furthermore, I haven't the slightest idea why I would need to "explain [myself]" to you.
Like I said over a week ago, if you have something more you would like to discuss then you can email me.
What happened to the Mar 27 meeting? I was there.
Thanks Michale! I will definitely put your suggestions into consideration.
Hi Michael, thanks for your recommendation! Look forward to seeing you in the future event.
Thanks Michael, it was great to meet you and the other folks on Monday night as well, Won
Hi Mike, Join Foxfire dance party at 8 pm Wed. Jan 8 if you have time.
Happy New year!
