renewable resource — the more love we give, the more we have to

Poly Boston is a group for polyamorous (poly), poly-curious, or
poly-friendly people in the greater Boston area. Currently,
you pretty much need email access to participate, because the
organizes events via
<email@example.com> mailing list. Events include discussion groups, support groups, potlucks,
parties, and other social events.

friendly people, this is not a dating service or a cruising area.

won’t either. But if you come looking for interesting discussion,
new ideas, and a sense of community, you will probably find it,
and if you treat the people you meet with respect and integrity,
we will probably enjoy your company.
