Keeping Your Heart Warm in North Dakota

It was good to see that ran something by on polyamorous people in the Fargo-Moorhead area of North Dakota. As we like to point out, polyamorous people are everywhere.

The polyamorous community is now reaching out, showing that they are here, should be accepted and that it's more common than you may think.
Good! A married couple is depicted.
“Yes, I have played wingman for my husband. It's a thing.”
Of the many potential advantages of polyamorous is having such good help in approaching a new potential partner. For example, if you're a man who is trying to approach a woman, having another woman vouch for you and observe the interaction to see if you're missing signals, you're more likely to make a connection.
Each currently has five relationships, a dynamic they're open with in their church where Ashton teaches Sunday school, with their family and friends and with their young daughter Haven.

“She doesn't know anything more about our love life than she would if we were monogamous,” said Ashton.

With the unique family dynamic, Haven has had to explain it to friends.

“I just say one person loves more than one person that's not in the family,” said Haven.

For their situation, that's a good explanation.
As a once monogamous married man, Andrew has made polyamorous activism his passion with the recent creation of a group called PolyAware.
He estimates about 1,000 people in Fargo-Moorhead are polyamorous and he wants others who are interested to know there is a place to learn more and feel accepted.
It's good to have placed to turn.
In the next few months, Polyaware plans to expand their group to Grand Forks because of interest.

In the meantime, they hold a presentation every fourth Sunday of the month at the pride center in Fargo.
Anyone, whether you’re interested in a polyamorous lifestyle or just want to learn more, can attend.
We have information here.
Thanks to for running that!
