Today is going to be interesting, it’s a new milestone within our relationship. She is off to meet someone she’s been chatting with for a while. Not really a date, just a toe in the water.
Something I’ve learned since make the move into polyamory, you have to let people navigate their own path and try new things.

I’ve been at my new job for almost three weeks so far, I’ve been more open about my poly nature as and when the questions have been asked by a few of my closer colleagues. All of them to date have accepted it at face value and just continued with the conversation after responses such as “Oh cool” or “I thought you had a wife, how does having a girlfriend as well work?”. At which point I elaborate as required.
I’m sure I’ll run into a negative response at some point in the future, but I guess I’ll just have to cross that bridge as and when it happens.

Life has been somewhat busy for the last few months, I’ve completed a large complex two year project for my last client and moved on to a new client this week.
I’ve been staying with my girlfriends family during the week for the last three months and they’ve been wonderful and accepting, but I have missed my own space. That’s why I’m really happy about just moving into a new flat, which has been a bit of an additional challenge while changing jobs.

I’ve found myself using the phrase “It’s complicated.” quite a lot in the past few months, because it’s true.
There’s lots going on in my life at the moment and I can’t help feeling that most of it is really beyond my control.

I’ve been a bit wrapped up in real life for the last couple of months and not really been in the mood to write or post much.
However, I did notice today that the blog now has over 300 followers world wide, which is quite amazing – thank you.
It’s not the reason I started this blog or something I set out to achieve, but your support is really appreciated.
So I would like to give something back to you all.
For the month of December, I’d like to reblog posts from anyone of you who cares to share. Just add a comment to this post and a link to blog post you’d like to have rebloged. Please also include a bit about your blog and why you’re here.
I looking forward to sharing your thoughts in the coming month.
I woke up this morning to a notification from WordPress – it’s been a whole year!
I’ve also taken a snap shot of the blogs stats, while I’ve found rather surprising too.
I’d just like to say a big thank you to all those who have visited, liked and commented during the past year.
I’m looking forward to what the future brings.
This week has been a bit tough, but I finally got something off my chest and it went pretty well, I finally told my mother that I’m poly.
I’m not really sure how I expected it to play out, but it felt good to finally come clean and explain how I feel and why.
As the saying goes “The truth will set you free”.
I only wish that I’d had the courage to do it before, but there never seemed like a good time, perhaps there never is if it’s not done right at the beginning.

Please stand-by, normal services will be resumed as soon as we’ve worked out what’s normal anyway.
Having a very busy and somewhat hectic time at the moment, so really not in the mood or finding the time to write which is frustrating.
Last night my wife had a second date and by the sounds of it, it went really well.
She had a good time and it seems like lots of talking went on most of the evening.
I find myself walking a fine line between trying to maintain a suitable level of distance, wanting to be supportive and needing to make sure that’s she’s okay.
