The Southern California Polyamory Meetup Group Pages

The Southern California Polyamory Meetup Group is a social gathering network of like minded individuals who come together to gain information on the poly lifestyle. We have many members that are in successful, long term, poly relationships as well as members simply looking into polyamory as a possibility. Most of our events will be children friendly, so feel free to bring them along with you to events. If an event is not ok to bring children to, it will be clearly stated as such. At our events, sometimes people share their stories, ask questions or just basically hang out. We do not have a set topic, but it is always rated PG.

We have members from many walks of life and we encourage everyone to join us. We don't bite (well some of us might...at least a little). We also have many LGBT members and are very LGBT friendly. We have members of many different spiritual paths, economic advantage, political affiliations, sexual preferences, and ethnicities. We have some people who join us because polyamory is "weird" and they want to find out how we could possible make it work, and others who are in long term poly tribes. Sometimes we have had individuals who came to the restaurant to eat join us because they find our group fun and friendly. We do not turn people away, but we do like to make new friends, so feel free to come and at least check us out. :-)

Some of our events are held when Live The Dream has their own events. The founder of Live the Dream has been doing seminars on the Poly lifestyle since 1978. Our main meet and greet event is held once a month in Toluca Lake on the first Saturday of the month at Robano's at 7pm.

If you are new to the idea of Polyamory, please browse the pages below. They are filled with great information to start you on your journey. Remember, just as monogamy is not for everyone, polyamory does not suit everyone either. They are both viable love styles. The main key being that you need to do what your heart calls you to do ethically and with your partners knowledge and acceptance. Polyamory is not about cheating. If you are poly and go behind your partners back, it is still considered cheating. Open and honest communication is the key to any successful relationship whether friendship, familial, mongamous, polyamorous or otherwise. :-)
