What we're about
4th Corner Polyamory is a community in the north-westernmost corner of Washington State for people who are open to having more than one loving and honest relationship in their lives. Our goal is to organize and facilitate social gatherings, discussion groups, and activities for people within the greater Whatcom/Skagit County Poly and Non-Monogamous communities.
We are located in Bellingham, Washington, and have members from anywhere between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C. We connect through this meetup as well as a ‘secret’ Facebook group (please message us if you’re interested in joining it!).
4th Corner Poly originally began in 2003, when a group of Bellinghamsters bonded together to create a social and support network for local poly folk.
Since then, the group has changed and evolved. After a brief hiatus, the Bellingham Polyamory and Ethical Non-Monogamy Meetup merged into the 4th Corner Poly name, hoping to expand the local poly community and opportunities for socializing and support. We run some events in tandem with the Bellingham Sex Positive Center and follow their calendar to cross-post poly-centric events. (They're a great group! If you don't know about the BSPC you may want to check them out! (http://www.thebspc.org/))
Currently, we consist of people who identify as polyamorous, polyfidelitous, poly curious, swingers, or just people who want to learn more. We welcome all who come with an open mind and accepting heart, regardless of gender, current relationship status, race, sexual orientation, size, etc.
This is a great place to meet friends, and yes, sometimes that turns into more. It is not, however, a place meant for networking hookups or a place to expand one’s polycule. We understand that it’s natural for some of the connections made through this group to develop along romantic lines. However, this group is not meant to be the poly “meet market” for this area. If you’re looking to meet romantic partners you might want to check out OK Cupid (https://www.okcupid.com/), PolyMatchmaker (http://www.polymatchmaker.com/), Openminded (https://www.openminded.com/), or another website geared towards dating.
