Bi-poly here, both dh and I, although his bi-side is more of a sexual exploration thing and mine is a way of life. Been bi, umm forever
have acted on it since college. Aside from a college gf, all my long term relationships have been with men. No specific reason, its just happened that way.
We missed all the pride stuff purely out of being busy and spacey. All our friends said we missed a grand time.
I'm currently in a relationship with another man and dh just met a woman who is interested in exploring a triad with us.
I'm out to anyone who inquires but since I'm married to a man its not asked very often. Being poly adds a different dimension to it all. Folks don't even ask about sexual orientation, they just assume that we are both straight and monogamous. If the subject comes up, I'm completely open about it though.
I really truly love both men and women in every way, shape and form. The times I've been without boy-companionship I've craved it like crazy. The times I've been without girl-companionship I've craved it like crazy. So when I imagine the sexual preference continuum I put myself right smack dab in the middle.
Being poly is something that only emerged about 4 years ago. Dh and I were having this great discussion about why former relationships had failed and found these patterns and common themes. We decided right then and there that we'd open our marriage. It has morphed over time to what it is today and just keeps getting better. I am so enormously content in our relationship.
eta - the kids...Ds, who is 6, knows we are bi and poly . Some days he's all cool with it and other times it really bothers him. For instance if one of us is going on a date, he sometimes gets upset. We've had many meaningful conversations with him about societal norms vs. what our family is like, etc. And I expect we'll have many more over the years. Its hard when he gets upset but it makes me even more intent on practicing my lifestyle. I want him to see that his family is not going to fall apart because mommy and daddy love other people too even though this is what society says will happen.
