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?

To me polyamory is being in a committed relationship to more than one person, an alternative to monogamy.

Why did you join the polyamory meetup group?

I inadvertently found myself some months ago in a polyamorous relationship. I had the option of giving up the girl or embracing the lifestyle, so I decided to give it a shot. Since then I've determined it _may_ be the right way for me to go, but I want to see how other people have handled some of the obstacles I've overcome.

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

Yes, 3 people. Although I'm not quite certain what all is implied by the word "tribe".

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

No kids.

What would your ideal poly relationship look like?

A hard question to answer, because I'm still forming the idea and its quite open ended. I'm enamored with the idea of having a relationship support structure larger than just two people. I'm finding as I get older that a lot of the ideas I had about what makes a relationship work were naive. None of that is actually answering the questions, so I'll just say for now that my ideal poly relationship consists of a small group of people with mutual care and respect for each other.
