Name:Miss Maven
Birthdate:Jan 1
Location:Dallas, Texas, United States of America
I have been open to multiple relationships since a very young age. I was exposed to the idea that there were options other than monogamy when I was ten and my parents admitted that they had an open marriage.

But society tends toward a very Christian and monogamous mindset. My first forays into non-monogamy weren’t very successful. I didn’t have any healthy examples, or a community to lean on. I’ve since found both of those. But I remain very closed lipped about my lifestyle.
This blog is to help me find peace and acceptance in being open about my life and lifestyle, as well as share knowledge I've learned along the way.
