Your answers will be visible to everyone. This is like a resume to tell the other members what you are looking for. This is NOT a "swingers" group so please reflect this in your answer. What does the word polyamory mean to you?

Polyamory is the acceptance of your feelings for more than one person. It means not allowing your affections for your partner to grow into bitter resentment over time because you've denied what your feelings are for someone "for them."

Why did you join the polyamory meetup group?

Moving somewhere new can be lonely and I'd like to make some new friends.

Are you currently involved in a poly relationship? How many individuals in your "tribe"?

No.

Do you have any children? What are their ages? (helps in planning activities)

No, but I'm cool with kids.

What would your ideal poly relationship look like?

I would like a partner to share my life with. But I would like the understanding between us that sometimes feelings happen and that when they do, we should be honest with ourselves and each other about them. People come and go from our lives and we should let them. But I have never been in a true poly relationship before and couldn't really say what "ideal" is at this point.

Introduction

Hi! I'm a poly from Illinois who moved to LA at the beginning of September. I was involved with the meetup groups there and the people were great. Now I'm in LA, though, and I'd like to make other great friends!
