Help support your MeetupChip in
This group is for the COMMUNITY - for anyone to use that is interested in hosting a non-monogamous social event. Our hope is that poly socials will pop up all over the Tampabay area. Step up and host a meetup yourself! Yes, you! Send me a message if you have an idea for a meetup and we can talk.
This is a private group, and we wish to respect each person's need for privacy. While I do ask that you have a profile picture, you don't need to use your face - I just want some form of avatar. And if you don't feel comfortable using your name, then don't! We will not ever post your face or name in a public place.
This is not a swingers group or sex website. If you are looking for sexy events, this might be not the place for you. This is a social group focused on networking and friendship, only. This really isn't a hookup group, so you are likely to be wildly disappointed if you are specifically searching for a sex or romantic partner.
We are polyamorous, relationship anarchists, non-monogamous and swingers. We have open relationships, closed ones, huge networks, friends with benefits, play partners, long term and short term relationships. We believe in making ethical choices when it comes to non-monogamy and we believe in autonomy. We have explored our hopes, dreams, fears and desires and have chosen to live our lives authentically and with a passion for what is right for us. We believe that each person has different needs and only they know what is best for them.
We are every day people that wish to connect with other like minded individuals in hopes that we help foster a sense of support and community. No matter which label you identify with we hope you find new friends. We recognize that the kink community overlaps a great deal with alternative lifestyles, but we hope to offer a safe and comfortable space for everyone involved.
The leaders of the group are INTROVERTS. Which means we have people from all walks of life, and we know how hard it is to stick your neck out when you're new to a group. But rest assured that many in the group are also shy, and were once nervous about coming to an event the first time - just like you. It is my wish, as the organizer, that you will reach out to one of us if you wish to attend an event but are feeling nervous or anxious about doing so. Heck, most of the time, we're nervous, too!
It is your responsibility to respect your fellow human. However, if at any point, another member's boundaries are violated or disrespected, if you violate our need for privacy, or make people feel uncomfortable through inappropriate advances - we will remove you from the group and you will no longer be welcome.
