post #941 of 1038
Recently I have two new friends in my life, though one is far away ( 10 hours) but we really connect in every way. We have very similar beliefs etc but the relationship he is in is really wishy washy. My other friend is much closer and we seem to connect and are planning on meeting within the next few weeks.

Any new loves for anyone else?

I'm having a long distance relationship with a woman on the other side of the world. I'm totally head over heels for her... but it's really frustrating that we can't be together IRL.

Sonja and I are having a housewarming party in a couple weekends; I'm totally excited because our boyfriends are going to meet each other. I wonder if they'll get along! They're SO different. Also, my boyfriend is going to help me build a ramp so my friend Bonnie can come to the party! It's great because she's never been able to visit before.

Oh Sonja you must be so excited. How sweet of your boyfriend to do that for you!

I've kind of got two new involvements. One's coming up to visit me this weekend, and the other is on the other side of the state. I'm hoping to see him within the next month, but we've got all sorts of fun logistical issues to work out. The first weekend that I'm free he'll have his son. His son is older so it's not a matter of confusing a little kid, but he's always incredibly busy on those weekends so he's not sure how things would work out time-wise. We shall see. This weekend should be great, I'm really looking forward to it. I miss my redhead, though. He's been far away and poor, so I haven't seen him since November.

Hello, I've peeked in and out of here a couple of times, but I'm not a regular (other than reading lol).

Well, I think it may be time to be more regular here!
Yay! That means, DP and I are currently dating a lovely lady together. So far there are still a lot of kinks to work out, but I am hopeful that it works. If not, well that's fine too, as this is our first serious poly relationship (instead of the casual swinging situation we were involved in). Anyways, I am so giddy to be reading all over the internet about other couples experiences and issues. This is the best feeling we have had in a loooong time! And, it just feels so right, and the timing is right (even if I have minor doubts about our current situation). So, I guess I'm just beaming with NRE right now, ay?

Our relationship was/is in a perfect place to begin relationships. We have never been so loving and honest about EVERYTHING! It is so wonderful!

I couldn't imagine being so far away 10 hours is enough and Killing me.

I thought about sending something special in the mail but not sure what to send ??

The new guy I met two weeks ago did not pan out, turns out he was trying to cheat on his gf. Not the honest folk looking for

My long term friend (2yrs) w/ benefits has cut out the benefits part of the friendship.

I'm a bit in a whole of not liking the all the icky emotions I've been having.

I've got a friend from work that I hang out with a lot. We exercise 3xs a week together and also take breaks at work with. We had a breif 2 wk fling in the beginning of the friendship. She cut it off after the one and only play time. I've been dealing with my physical attraction to him, just won't fade very well

Enjoy!

Things are going good with my sweet girl. I am loving seeing her and DP close to one another. Even if for whatever reason things don't work, I know the two of them would be likely to continue to see one another. It's so sweet. She has been spending a lot of time at our house as well as her BF. I said I wasn't interested in a couple thing or even dating him at all, but tonight I am going to go ahead and go and spend some time with just the two of them. See if maybe there is any kind of connection. I know he is attracted to me, but he's not so much my type... but hey, I like getting to know people, and who knows which direction this could go.

Majikfaerie; Thank you!

Peacemamalove; I agree! This is the lovliest and most honest, and closest that DP and I have ever been. <3

Shane I hope your heart heals quickly.

Thanks :)

Mark, husband, and I were able to get to a poly munch tonight. One other person came. We also had out 11yo son with us (convenience from picking at at birthday party). We all had nice conversation and food for a couple hours. Our son talked non stop! It was nice to chat with another like minded person

Last night I had an impromptu 'hook up'. No expectations of anything further, was fun. I know I'll see him again since he is one of the manager of my son's soccer league.

Enjoy!

Dealing with a new scenario...probably will get ignored...but here goes:

Typically when i date someone, it's always been me with partners and the gentleman is single. This time i found a fantastic man dating a woman who seems to be my twin. We get along great when we hang out. My problem is that I am not used to being in this situation. The man also has several other woman he is "dating" and has yet to express any affection for me outside of sexual advances. I really like this guy and want to have a romantic relationship with him but i cant help but feel his plate is too full at this moment and i will only set myself up for disappointment. I dont desire any FWB relationships and I dont want to be used simply for my sexuality.

It's hard for me to talk to him as he is a double major and constantly busy during the week. I dont want to seem weak and have this outpour of emotion when i have no idea how he feels about me. I want to be a rational adult. I dont want to feel like i am in high school. but i do and i am so lost.

i think you know the answers.

Shane, that sound like you had a really great night!

Bettina, I don't have any BTDT advice but I would think that you should try to steal a piece of his time (I realize he is busy), but you need to be honest with him about your feelings. And you need him to be honest about his. Oh, and you are not going to be ignored here!

So a couple of nights ago, I went to our prospects house. I found out right before we left that she was hoping I would go spend time with her BF while she spent time with my DP. I wasn't comfortable enough with him, as I don't know him at all, and told her I wanted her there. She said that was fine with that, but her attitude all evening proved otherwise. I did spend a little alone time with her BF, and we got along great, to my surprise. Well, this actually ended up being a speed bump for me. For the last three weeks that DP and I have been courting this girl she has continuously said she was leaving her BF, she just was not sure when. I didn't believe her so I put it to the back of my head. Well, now seeing that her BF and I get along so well, and he is very interested in courting me I have decided I need to take a step back while they figure thier own issues out. I don't/won't get involved with either under these circumstances. I will not get close to him, knowing he has no clue she is planning on leaving. I don't want to see her, or see a prospective friend/lover get hurt. I will be talking to her about this today or tomorrow. So, even though this didn't turn out exactly how I had hoped, it opened up my eyes to something I was trying to ignore. Someone who will lie to her primary partner will lie to me. DP doesn't want to take a step back like myself, so I told him he could continue to date her if he wanted. We all have to learn from our own experiences... I'm just not willing to be someone elses learning experience.
