To me it means that love and sex are not limited commodities, and that one can be involved in multiple relationships without diminishing them.
I am essentially "polyamorous curious" at this point. I have never had a satisfying monogamous relationship before despite two decades of trying it, and I am at the point in my life where I find that I do not want a monogamous relationship; it seems "old fashioned" and limited. On the other hand, I do not have extensive experience with the poly lifestyle. I have friends who are polyamorous and by talking to them I started to wonder if perhaps this was the ethical sexual philosophy that best suits me. I am interested in finding out more about how these relationships work for others.
I'm not anybody's primary, let's put it that way.
I do not have children.
I am only beginning to figure this out. I think I might be a person who does not settle into a "primary relationship," and be serially single, involved with other single poly women or with people who have a strong primary partner. I am open to a primary partner happening if I find a woman who provides the perfect balance for it. I am still exploring the options at this point.
My name is Ryan Harvey, and I'm a thirty-nine year-old male living in Los Angeles. By profession, I'm a struggling (although award-winning) science-fiction and fantasy novelist. My other loves are movies, swing dancing, and books books books.
