This group is for poly and poly friendly folks in and around Asheville as well as the Western North Carolina (WNC) area. “Poly” (also known as polyamory) is a form of responsible non-monogamy. The specific definition that we are using for polyamory is “having, or being open to having, multiple honest, loving, intimate relationships with the full knowledge and consent of everyone involved.” Even though the intimacy often involves the physical, it can also be emotional and/or intellectual and/or spiritual intimacy.
Other Components of Asheville Poly Network
--Younger Asheville Poly People -- This is not a separate group, as such, but activities may periodically be scheduled that are open to younger poly people only.
--Asheville Poly Network Facebook Group - Our group is listed as "closed", meaning that only members can see discussions + events posted, but the group itself is searchable and anyone can see who is a member of the group. One of our co-ordinators, Tikva, is the administrator for that group. PLEASE NOTE: If, for some reason, you do not wish your interest in polyamory to be visible to others on the internet in general, you should not join with your "public" identity.
