À propos de ce groupe

WE ARE NOT A SEX OR SWINGERS GROUP! POLYAMORY IS ABOUT HAVING MEANINGFUL, EMOTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH MULTIPLE PEOPLE. Please read the description below carefully before joining.

The purpose of the group is to provide safe, social meetings for anyone who is interested in polyamory in all it's many forms. When you join you'll be asked two questions. If we see sex seeking or unicorn hunting in your answers you'll be automatically refused. The organisers may also contact you to discuss your application before approval. Our regular meetings are not intended to be places to find partners.

We provide an opportunity to meet poly people and find out more about polyamory, socialise with others who understand the concepts and discuss anything you want to really. Topics of discussion range from how we live poly lives to the weather and even sport. Polyamory is practised in many ways, from solo poly to married/attached people dating others, relationship anarchy and many other dynamics. Our main meets are in pubs and coffee shops. As of January 2019 we have started "poly speed dating" which is aimed at those who want to make connections. Note that the speed dating is open to people of all genders and you may meet people of a gender to which you're not romantically attracted.

Whether you are experienced in the poly life or just curious, come and hang out with us! This is NOT designed as a "cruising" or "picking up" event, so don't come expecting everyone to be looking for new partners. Do not send messages to other members unless you have met them at a meetup, and spoken substantially with them. If you receive unsolicited "let's meet" or other predatory messages from a member, please forward them to the admin team. We aim to be a safe space for everyone.

Our long standing Tuesday pub meetings now regularly attract 60 people or more, so they can be loud. The pub is accessible for wheelchair users, not too noisy, not too expensive, serves food, is central ... we've really tried to make the venue as accessible as possible for most people. The pub we use for the Tuesday meetup does have a couple of steps at the entrance, there is a buzzer to inform pub staff if you need assistance or a ramp. If you need assistance and if you wish, you can let the group organisers know in advance and we'll make sure the pub staff are expecting you. Do come along if you are interested in meeting poly people, if you are poly yourself, or if you think you might be. We're a friendly lot and don't generally bite. :-)

Poly Coffee is a smaller group limited to 45 people, in a coffee shop which does not serve alcohol. It's aimed at us more experienced poly folk providing support for people starting out on their poly journeys, the atmosphere is generally quieter than the pub and more focused on discussing poly topics. There is always a "poly 101" session for newbies, and everyone has the opportunity to ask specific questions or request topics for discussion.

The Poly Women's group is a specific meetup for anyone who identifies as a woman and those who have a non-binary gender identity and who have an interest in polyamory. Usually a variety of topics are discussed, not just those related to polamory.

NOTE TO MEDIA PEOPLE OR RESEARCHERS: Our organising team and members often do not appreciate researchers asking questions at meet ups. I am not a spokesperson for polyamory and I do not appreciate the endless flow of requests for information. I would far rather you sought information online before approaching myself or others in the community. Although no longer fully functioning you can try the Poly Media Association http://www.polymediaassociation.com/ If you email me with questions about polyamory I am most likely to forward your request to someone from the PMA anyway. We also strongly recommend you read this guide to interviewing poly people - http://emanix.livejournal.com/30996.html .

London Polyamory Meetup Group

Sir John Oldcastle pub

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT A SEX/SWINGERS CLUB! PLEASE READ THE GROUP DESCRIPTION BEFORE JOINING Tables are reserved for us towards the back of the pub. If you have any difficulty finding us, look for the inflatable parrots hanging off the light fittings on the ceiling or off chairs. You can also ask bar staff for the "parrot people". This meetup group is for anyone who is interested in openly and honestly loving more than one partner - you may call yourself polyamorous or non-monogamous or any other label you prefer, but if you are interested in having, or currently have multiple romantic and/or sexual relationships where all concerned are consenting and in full knowledge, you are welcome to come along and chat with others who understand those choices. This is NOT a dating group of singles! If you are actively looking for a partner, that's fine, but the group is not set up for the purpose of matchmaking, and some of our members are pretty "polysaturated" (i.e. they have as many relationships as they want and are not looking for more!) I'd hate for anyone to come along expecting that everyone there is looking for new partners and then be disappointed. If you are looking for new partners, look out for things like Poly Speed Dating nights, Poly Cocktails and try looking online at, for example, okcupid.com. If you receive unsolicited "let's meet" or other predatory messages from a member, please forward them to the admin team. We aim to be a safe space for everyone.Come along and talk to others about how they found their partners, too, if you like. We are a friendly group and not known to bite. ;-)

Poly Coffee

Lieu visible par les membres

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE NOT A SEX/SWINGERS CLUB! PLEASE READ THE GROUP DESCRIPTION BEFORE JOINING. Poly Coffee takes place at Pure, 85 Gracechurch St near Monument tube station. This venue is more accessible than any we've used before for poly coffee. The meetup runs from 1pm to around 4pm, with a formal start beginning with introductions (voluntary) around 1:20pm. Please aim to arrive promptly so as to avoid missing any of the conversation. Poly coffee is a monthly meet started in 2015 aimed at complementing our long-standing pub meets by giving peer support to those who are travelling the poly journey. Unlike the pub meet it is a place where the focus is on learning and it aims to be a welcoming starting point for those starting on a poly lifestyle. Experienced poly people are welcome too but must be prepared to answer questions and share their experience for the benefit of the less experienced. It is NOT designed as a "cruising" or "picking up" event, so don't come expecting everyone to be looking for new partners. Do not send messages to other members unless you have met them at a meetup, and spoken substantially with them. If you receive unsolicited "let's meet" or other predatory messages from a member, please forward them to the admin team. We aim to be a safe space for everyone.

Generally we would discuss any variety of topics on the evening, not just those limited to the world of polyamory While this is a free event, I'd like to request that those attending the social make a voluntary donation of £1 to help cover the admin costs of Meetup.com.
