Time:7:34 pm.
Mood: curious.
I just did a couple of readings for myself, but I'm somewhat new to tarot and would enjoy having others' viewpoints. I did one reading about work/career and one about love/relationships.

Time:4:19 pm.

By coincidence, Pagan Polyamory by Raven Kaldera, just happens to be the next book to be discussed over at Cunning Minx's Poly Book Club in Chicago. It was next in the pile of poly books I recently ordered, so we're discussing it too at http://www.shelfari.com/groups/12041/discussions/74470/Book-9-Pagan-Polyamory.

This discussion will begin on November 1st, 2008.

Subject:Looking for a sanity check
Posted by:teamnoir.
Time:9:48 am.
Hey.  I'm looking for a sanity check.

If you're dating person A, and person A begins to date person B...

Do you naturally assume that your time, energy, etc, with person A
will decline and/or that person A will pull away from you?  Or do you
generally assume that these things will remain relatively constant,
with the understanding that if things take off between A & B that
there may well be some NRE to dissipate?

Conversely, if you are dating person A and you begin to date person C,
do you plan for or expect that your time, attention, and/or energy for
person A will necessarily decline?  Or do you tend to assume that your
relationship with A will remain more or less consistent as you begin
to add the new relationship in to your life?

Subject:Recovering from Cheating
Posted by:teamnoir.
Time:12:48 pm.
I have a strange question for this group.

In monogamy, when there has been an indiscretion, (cheating), the standard advice usually given is to:

Step #1: end the affair
Step #2: rebuild trust

The alternative, of course, is either to open the relationship, which would seem to me to be extremely difficult following a betrayal like cheating. Or to end the first relationship, resulting in a sort of overlapping serial monogamy.

Question: Are there any other plausible or practical approaches?

I've always known that cheating was possible in a poly context, but I've never paid much attention to it because it just seemed so silly and pointless. But I find myself in a situation like that now. And I'm wondering...

How do people recover? Does it require ending the "affair"? Has anyone successfully recovered the original relationship without ending the affair?

Subject:Job Hunting in Houston
Posted by:bailey21975.
Time:5:42 pm.
Mood: busy.
I'm on the hunt for my "ideal job", and hoping people can point me the right direction.

I've been working as a paralegal/office manager for a little better than 5 years, and am about to relocate to Houston. I am very confident of my skills, and have no doubt I'll be able to find a good job quickly.

However, I have a non-traditional family structure, and am pagan. I would love to find a job in a law firm where I could feel free to be "out" in my choice of lifestyles. To that end, I'm looking for a law firm, preferably in criminal, civil rights or family law, that has a non-discriminatory hiring policy and will be as accepting as possibly on a social level.

Any suggestions?

Xposted like crazy, sorry if you see this multiple times.

Subject:Baby names
Posted by:bailey21975.
Time:10:40 am.
Mood: cheerful.
Brief bit of background, for those that don't know me (which is most of you lol) -- I'm part of a FFM triad, and my girlfriend is pregnant, due in March.

Stolen from stephilyn:

"I think the general consensus on names is:

Bethany or Katelyn for a girl

Connor for a boy

Heather feels Connor Nelson is too many "n's"...I don't disagree but it's the only name we all like.

She suggested Bethany Sage which I love for the meaning but I'm worried it sounds too harsh. Any suggestions on middle names? We want something that is meaningful and preferably honors nature."


Mike isn't thrilled with the front-runners right now, but isn't coming up with anything better. :) We suggested Kyle if its a boy, but Steph vetoed on the grounds that we all have that little Cartman voice in our head starting with "WEELLLLL.........." lol

Any thoughts?

X-posted to my journal, as well as a few other groups -- so if you see this several times, I apologize! :)

Subject:How does this friends thing work??
Posted by:wolfpeach.
Time:8:36 am.
Hi All -

I've recently started this LJ thing, and would like to keep a journal that all of the nice people in groups I'm a member of (such as this one) can read, but that wont be visible to people who *aren't* members of the same groups as me... Do I have to add you all as friends individually? Whats the etiquette here?

I'm not such an exhibitionist that I want to share my ramblings with any weirdo on the internet (or colleagues, or ... gulp... parents) so I dont want to mark it 'public'... but a) it feels v forward and b) it will take eons to add everyone in all the groups I belong to individually.

Hmmmm... any advice?

In the meantime, I might just start adding folk I like the look of... So please dont be offended if I add( or dont add) you!! It might be quite random....

Subject:Introduction
Posted by:bailey21975.
Time:3:07 pm.
Mood: happy.
I'm new to a couple of communities here on LiveJournal and thought I'd do a quick x-post to introduce myself.

I'm Heather, 30 years old, legal secretary, bisexual, pagan, and part of a polyamorous group of three adults (myself, Steph and Mike) and two children (Noah and Eric), neither biologically mine.

In addition to a house full of people, we also have Mattie (chocolate lab mix), Chloe and Vader (adorable but evil kittens), and my rat-girls, Ruby, Tinkerbell, Holly and Ivy.

Mike works full-time, Steph is in training for a part-time job (that was hired as a full-time position that fell threw, long story and I'm still pissy about it), and I work a forty-hour week in theory, but it can actually vary from just over 40 to closer to 50. In addition, Eric is in preschool, Mike has Tai-Kwon-Do classes 2 nights a week, Mike and I are in the process of getting involved in the local community theatre, and Steph and I almost always attend the local "Friday night auction" lately. Its a busy, busy household, to say the least.

So far, this relationship is working well for us, but this is the first poly relationship for any of us, really. I have had a previous "open" relationship, with some secondary involvements, but none of us have ever been involved in anything remotely like we have now. I'm looking to meet people and make friends in similar situations, who can help us deal with the bumps in the road I KNOW will be coming up. For instance, when Noah starts in a new school this fall, and people ask about his family, how is he going to handle that? He's already asking, does this mean he has two mommies? No, it means you have Mommy and Mike and Heather, all who love you very much and will be here to take care of you. So far, that works. I'm not silly enough to think all of his questions will be answered that easily, or the answers so readily accepted.

Anything else you want to know, just ask. I'm glad to be here, and hope to meet lots of interesting people.

Subject:Our Adventure
Posted by:shadowninjette.
Time:6:59 pm.
Mood: accomplished.
Well last night Rain and I went to our first local Poly meeting. We have been a member of AzPolyPurpose for over a year now and have always made excuses for not attending the monthly discussion groups or social gatherings. But Saturday night I made the decision and woke Rain up early the next day. I left Nitrous asleep in bed because he had to work and Rain and I were on our way.

If took us about an hour to get to the other side of the Valley but the house the meeting was at was just beautiful. It was so great to meet other people into the same relationship as us. We even met a group that needed a flow chart for their relationship more then we did. So it was a great experience. The conversation was very open and involving. There was food and drink. There was even clothing optional swimming.

I was actually really surprised at myself for being so open about swimming naked with people that I had just met but it just felt natural. There wasn’t anything really sexual about it and nobody judged anyone else. I never once felt that anyone was thinking I was fat or ugly and Rain was right there by my side.

We were definitely the youngest people there, but I had always known that the poly community was populated by mainly older folk. It didn’t bother me though one bit. I felt like they treated us like mature adults and that was really nice. I enjoyed being respected and not judged for once based on my age or my relationship status. I really hope that the next meeting we attend (and I hope to be going fairly regularly now) I can have Nitrous by my side as well.
