I’ve noticed resently that the term polyamory is being used by some parties as a way of trying to make cheating seem okay. In short, this makes me really angry.
Polyamory for me is about being honest and truthful with anyone I wish to engage in a relationship with.

Here’s a very interesting and search question for those within the poly community.
Is it possible to actually be poly and find that elusive happily ever after feeling?
If we first start by throwing out the widely accepted starvation economy model regarding love, we may all stand a chance I guess.

I discovered today that I’ve been writing this blog for over 2 years and identified as polyamorus for close approaching 3 years. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun 😆
So I’d like to say a big thank you to all those who have read my bramblings, liked my posts and especially those who have chosen to commit by hitting the follow link.
I may be getting older but I’m still learning something new every day and this is very important for me. My thoughts, views and feelings on many subjects keep changing and evolving. I believe that being capable of changing by opinion based on experience, evidence and rational thinking helps improve and define me as person.

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.

We all wear masks in some shape or form, it’s only when someone drops their mask that we truly see them for who they are.
During my life I have personally worn many masks and projected various personas at different times. Some for quite a while and others in or under particular situations.

I read the following article a while back and filed it under things to share in the future.
It paints an extremely accurate portrait I imagine, of the emotional rollercoaster which often occurs during a separation or divorce.
