Dealing With Jealousy, Monday 2-4pm

If you want to be successful in nonmonogamy, it is important to de-fang the little green monster.

Introverts and Polyamory, Tuesday 2-4pm
Polyamory can open up a whole new world of dating possibilities. For the introverted and shy however, it can open up a whole new world of dating nightmares. In this workshop we will tackle some of the challenges of entering, or re-entering the dating field, handling dating roles, and imbalances. Find and embrace your local poly community, deal with social awkwardness, and learn to love your awesome self. We will have a few speakers who can share their experiences, perspectives, and stories on how they have been able to balance being introverted, and meeting new people in the polyamory community.
