Vili, as she signs her messages, writes:
To be born and to grow up in your little corner of that world (Bulgaria in my case) is not easy. In my life I never saw working, mutually rewarding monogamous relationship between straight individuals. I didn't have positive role models. So,when I identified myself as bisexual and polyamorous I felt both open to the experience and shocked by it!
So much of what Vili writes resonates for me, especially her comment in the last paragraph about when love comes to us and about being who we really are being the fastest way to freedom. And the religious harrassment she endured via her husband's ex is an all-too common story for those who identify as polyamorous and/or bisexual. But the most compelling of all is what she says in her postscript. It can indeed be lonely to be the only poly-identified person you know. But she is surely not alone. If you would be willing to be Vili's polyamorous pen pal, please send me your name and email address and a little about yourself and I'll send it to her.
