Hi everyone, Haven't posted for a while. I've moved house, changed jobs and my social life keeps me busy when I'm not working. About a year ago, I told my girlfriend that, although I loved her dearly, I felt that having just one lover was not enough for me, and that I would like to pursue alternative relationships with other women. She seemed open to the idea, but did have her reservations. She says she's bi-curious and would entertain the idea of me having other lovers if she was included. However, she also recognised (as do I) that within such a relationship problems could arise. Up until recently I haven't acted out with other women. Lately however, within the space of two weeks I've been seeing two other women. Nothing has much happened beyond a few kisses - but I really like them both. I've been honest with them and told them I have a girlfriend, and they've both said they appreciate my honesty. I haven't laid with either of them in the biblical sense, and I am in no rush to either, as I would prefer to get to know them better. I also want to talk to my girlfriend about this too before I embark on any sexual adventures. I want to be completely honest with my girlfriend about my feelings with regards to these two women. She knows about one of them, and doesn't seem to mind me having contact with her - in fact we're even contemplating having dinner or going out for drinks pretty soon together with the three of us, although I'm pretty nervous about it, because I'm not sure how the dynamic between us will be. However, I'm worried that my girlfriend thinks I just want to act out sexually - in fact that's not what I want to do (well at least not only that). I really love the idea of having two or more emotional partners. And I want to be honest about my feelings too especially to my long-term partner. Has anyone here had much experience with polyamory? I'm pretty worried that my girlfriend would feel hurt that I am considering emotional attachment to other women, even though she knows how I am. I want her to know that she is extremely special to me, while at the same time feeling safe and validated in being in other relationships. Would really love feedback and thoughts from people who may or may not have had similar experiences.
