WARNING: Consensual non-monogamy ain’t for the faint of heart. We are constantly challenging social norms. We are discovering and creating new ways of being, we are letting go of old ideas, old beliefs, old language and old patterns. You WILL be changed. Once you see, you can’t unsee. You’re invited to leave your expectations and assumptions at the “door” and come with a beginner’s mind, ready to learn, grow and evolve.
ABOUT US: There are MANY (poly) ways of loving and relating with others.
Since 2014, PolySocial members have been hosting socials and discussion groups all across the Tampabay area based on their unique interests and needs. Due to COVID-19, we’re currently redefining how we connect.
WE ARE CURIOUS. Few of us had good relationship models growing up. Heck, most of us don’t even know how to make friends as adults. Most of us have no clue how to tenderly hold and nurture one precious love, much less “many” loves. There’s a gap between who we need to get curious about what's really going on and learn new ways of being.
WE ARE COUNTER-CULTURE. We didn’t like what we saw in the world, and in our own personal lives, and we’re letting go of the old to make space for the new. We support each other in learning and creating new ways of being in the world and with each other. What we were taught no longer works for us, so we need to get creative to find new solutions.
WE ARE DIVERSE. We welcome individuals from all backgrounds. Most of us - but not all - share an interest or identity of consensual non-monogamy. We aim to be safe and affirming of the many ways we feel comfortable presenting ourselves to the world and we’re willing to do the inner work to help people feel at home.
WE ARE FAMILY. We are a meet-market, not a meat-market. Membership does not indicate status, affiliation, orientation, identity or availability. Out of an abundance of respect for our precious family, please treat each individual with thoughtfulness and care. We’re a social support network, not a dating service.
PLEASE NOTE: What we bring to the community is amplified in the space between us. You may not be a good fit for the community if you struggle to accept the differences of others, if you’re looking for a hookup or quick date, if you have significant relationship drama or if you’ve been registered as a sex offender.
