Whenever I tell someone I am polyamorous, often the first question they ask is, “what’s that?” Since I live in a conservative area, most people I talk to have never even heard the word ‘polyamory’ before.

About Polly A. Marie
Polly A. Marie was raised in a liberal family where being accepting of all individuals regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, ability, dress size, hairstyle, etc. was the primary focus of our family. She spent a lot of time in her youth volunteering with the Special Olympics and was always known to stand up for the underdog on the playground at recess. A very empathetic and caring person, she has always deeply cared for those around her. As she got older and started to date she always was the person to fall head-over-heels for someone, love just seemed to swell within her. In her late teens she entered into her first serious relationship, and it was within that relationship that her eyes were open to the ideas of having more than one partner while still being committed to a primary partner. Today she lives in a conservative area and works in a professional office setting where nobody has any idea of her polyamorous lifestyle. She hopes to educate people about polyamory to reduce some of the stigma surrounding the topic. She is loving, caring, a little kooky, and proud to be polyamorous.
