Games Night Cards Against Humanity: ~ March 10, 2015

Scheduled now twice a month, our Chat & Learns are a gathering of peers who come together for discussion and exchange of views on various topics surrounding Polyamory.

They are a great opportunity for reflection and to gain greater perspective on the complexities that polyamorists encounter.

There is an elevator for use for those that require it.

This month’s topic: Long Distance Relationships

In this day and age of technology, multiple efficient travel modes and supportive autonomy in relationships, it seems more and more prevelant for people to be involved in relationships that carry an element of physical distance to them.

This month, we’ll discuss some of the pros and cons to LDR’s, how we can cope with the physical distance, how we maintain connectedness with our partners and why we may gravitate towards these types of relationships.

Bring light snacks to share

Poly Speed Dating: ~ April  11, 2015

Are you looking for new poly relationships? Join us for our first ever Poly Speed Dating event!

Poly Speed Dating, which has been running successfully in the USA and the UK, is a social event where people meet a number of potential dating partners. The event takes into account gender preferences, individual/group dating preference, age range preferences, level of kink preferences, and welcomes all sexual orientations and genders.

During the evening you will rotate though several “dates” of about 5 minutes each. After each date you privately check off whether or not you are interested in romantically pursuing that person any further. Your choices are collected by the organizers at the end of the night and if you and your date both were interested, you will both be notified of each other’s interest and contact information by email after the event.
