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 means many loves. The word was actually coined by Morning Glory Zell. She and her husband Oberon lead Church of All Worlds the real life group inspired by the fictional one in Stranger in a Strange Land. .

Why did you join the polyamory meetup group?

I joined to reach out and bring support and education to those in or wanting to learn more about the delights of multiply committed relationships, group marriage and group living.

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

I am currently a poly single open to finding a primary partner--couple acceptable for that. I have close and loving relationships within my intimate network--20+ male and female friends and lovers. Some live locally while others visit from places as far away as Germany. Some have been in my life since the late 70s. My group house has 5 other adults in it as of March 2015. We are 3 men and 2 women+ 3 felines in residence.

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

My children are grown. I have five grand children--one newest grand daughter born in March of 2010. They do not generally come to Live the Dream Events. Some of our members do bring children to events--there is a yard with space to play and computer games available. If more people bring kids, we will have more kid oriented activities such as trips to Lake Balboa. If YOU want such activities, please feel free to volunteer to lead them...

What would your ideal poly relationship look like?

Being in an open committed relationship with my special someone+living in a group house is Living My Dream. Perhaps something closer to the Line Marriage in Moon is a Harsh Mistress or Lazarus Long's Tertius Colonly Family would be even better...


I founded Live the Dream in 1987 to provide a social and educational support group for those who are in or want to consider multiply committed love relationships.

What Terry Lee B. is saying about this Meetup Group

Let's encourage gatherings like this. There will be themed, poly orientation and discussion event taking place before the parties in the future--everything from Coming Out Poly to Your Parents and Your Kids to discussions based on Robert A Heinlein's Group Marriages of the future (Moon Is A Harsh Mistress, Stranger in a Strange Land, etc.). Join us for sharing and FUN!
