St Valentine’s message from Madame Pres. (Helen)

 

Hot Summer Greetings! Hope everyone’s good and staying hydrated because St. Valentine’s day is coming. 

 

It could be new love, true love, or old love, bold love…or maybe you have a crush? I had a St. Valentine’s crush not so long ago, and I dared to let him know via a text message; I admitted my attraction and asked him out for a coffee date. 

 

But, alas, a cruel joked was played upon me. His work mate answered the text pretending to be my crush and said, yeah, it would be great to go out for a date. 

 

Then, some time later, my hopes were dashed. The crush texted back and said it wasn’t him that sent the message, and declined the coffee date. I was disappointed but, I honoured the St Valentine’s tradition of being a romantic and texted him saying, that’s OK, I can take a joke too. 

 

We’re still friends and I’m not ashamed of revealing my own feelings on that day. So, yeah. Take a punt on your passionate feelings and reveal them. But realise that it is your own self that is the romantic and that the other may not respond the way you wish. 

 

There is a funky new song out on JJJ Radio: “I don’t know about you but I just can’t get enough of myself!”It always cheers me up to hear these lyrics, and I am happily engaged with me, myself and I!!! The occasional crush makes me feel humorously human, passionate and alive. 

 

As a poly hedonist, I am not interested in roses, diamond rings, promises and sweet nothings! But, I like chocolate!

 

All great artists, poets, romantics, philosophers etc. need a muse and also need to be amused. So express yourself to another, or just be yourself and have a great St Valentine’s day any day of the year.

 

P.S.

 

What’s more popular than St Valentine’s Day? The Chinese New Year of the Monkey.
What does the Monkey stand for? The key word is ‘fantasy’. Here’s some more: clever and resourceful; lively and agile; likes talking and competition. Loves laughing but never at own expense. Intelligent and adaptable, quick witted but unscrupulous, selfish and devious. If needed, can be diplomatic and tactful. Likes a crowd. Readily falls in love, but too unstable to find happiness. So check out the animal within and be good and safe for the rest of the year. 

 

Helen (Madame Pres.)

 

 

 

 

                                                                                    Getting Together

 

    At least one international urban planner has said that Victoria is better organized for polyamory than other places that he goes to on a regular basis; places such as Spain, for example. 

 

    Spain has been a favored destination for a particularly raunchy type of British tourism for decades now, so that speaks volumes for the kind of places that Victoria and Melbourne have become.

 

    PolyVic has been going for years now, and that organization must take the credit for making face-to-face contact possible for a growing number of people who want to meet others who are interested in polyamory as a lifestyle.

 

    We should make it clear that PolyVic and PolyFi are community organizations run by the members. This is something very different to a site using the word “polyamory”, or something very like it, to attract customers to a dating site.   

 

    We don’t do social interaction much at PolyFi, though it has to be noted that there is quite a bit of cross membership with PolyVic. Gary Hillier, for example, has provided his place as a venue for all sorts of polyamory social gatherings over the years. As a matter of fact, Gary’s place is almost becoming an alternative Confest venue for the polyamory crowd at New Year. Gary’s contribution over the years has been duly recognized by PolyVic, and rightly so.

    The message to people in Victoria who are interested in meeting people who like polyamory is this: they should go to the PolyVic website and check out the calendar, and note the dates and locations for social activities. That might not sound like much, but it could be a brand new beginning for you.  

 

    People in regional areas or other capital cities have PolyVic as a model if they want to do something similar. Be aware that creating an organization that enables face-to-face contact carries legal liability in the State of Victoria. PolyVic have repeatedly chosen to incorporate as a non-profit organization to best deal with the kinds of situations that can happen when people get together.

 

    Browsing through the polyamory offerings in other States seems to show that choosing to incorporate might have been in the too hard basket for at least one or two groups in the past. As a result, there are polyamory websites still on the web that are now defunct.

 

    At the moment, we are trying to get in touch with the various polyamory websites in Australia. We’ll get back to you with more information.
