This will be Rocky Mountain Poly Living's fifth year, after drawing 100 to 150 people for its very successful first three. It's run by Loving More (based in Colorado), which has put on Poly Living East in Philadelphia every February for 12 years. From the announcement of the 2017 event: "Másfél nap az alternatív párkapcsolatok és családok jegyében: előadás, workshop, beszélgetőkör, mozgás, tánc, kreatív műhely, buli és minden, ami csak érdekel!
Gyertek el, tegyétek fel kérdéseiteket, osszátok meg gondolataitokat, tudásotokat, tapasztalataitokat egymással.
The number of people who say they are solely committed to monogamy, meanwhile, has fallen to a minority of all users, 44 percent, down from 56 percent in 2010.“It seems that now people are more open to polyamory as a concept,” said Jimena Almendares, Ok Cupid’s chief product officer.
Estimates vary, but surveys suggest that roughly 4 to 5 percent of Americans are polyamorous.
Forty-two percent would consider dating someone already involved in an open or polyamorous relationship.
Both numbers represent increases of 8 percentage points from five years ago.Polyamorous people have long used dating apps and sites by either spelling out their arrangement in their profile bios or by creating their profile as a couple.However, Almendares says, that created confusion for people looking to join polyamorous arrangements.The programme is self organized by the participants. Two 'Grand Poly Meetings' take place every spring and fall; these draw 120 to 150 people for up to 70 workshops, talks and other events.The smaller winter meeting gathers about 40." In past years the meetings have sold out within days of being announced.According to the organizers, the gatherings serve as "a platform for networking and for the exchange of experiences and practical knowhow.
