Dating a poly couple
'I basically want to attract attention to the lifestyle and show people that it is an acceptable choice.'Polyamorous couples and swingers have been in the spotlight in recent years, with shows including Showtime's reality series Polyamory: Married & Dating, which first premiered in 2012, and A&E's controversial new reality Neighbors With Benefits, which was canceled after two episodes, bringing the concept of various types of open relationships to American's living rooms.Meanwhile, Adam Lyons, 34, a Los Angeles resident who was born in East London, and his two girlfriends Brooke Shedd, 26, and Jane Shalakhova, 25, have made waves after speaking candidly to the media about their polyamorous family.
There is a common misconception that a polyamorous relationship is really no different from an open-relationship agreement: one committed couple, with some lighthearted fun on the side.

People commit adultery every day, behind their partners' backs, and we want them to seek out open relationships instead, leading to a happier and more honest society.'Users can sign up for free as a single person or as a couple; after establishing their gender identify, they can then regulate their preferences, which can include men, women or both, as well as singles or couples.
The term, which was coined by the now defunct Kerista Commune in San Francisco, is used to describe the joy people feel when their partners are engaging in activities that make them happy.
I have looked and looked and have basically run my head into a brick wall with this. You've got a lot of company in your search for a single gal to join you and your wife for a long-term, monogamous partnership Walter, so while I'll share the websites that I know of to suit your needs, there are few guarantees you'll actually find what you're after. In many polyamorous communities, single women wanting to join a couple for an exclusive triad are often called "Unicorns", as they're both rare and beautiful to behold.
Having said that, I know of a significant number of partnerships with this kind of dynamic, so it's more than just a fantasy you're chasing.
