Falling in love is the easy part. But what happens after that? Beyond The Love’s mission is to provide an opportunity for the polyamorous community to come together in an educational and social forum.

At Beyond the Love you will find a wealth of classes, workshops and mini events to learn tools, techniques and communication skills to enhance our poly relationships. We provide a safe environment for meeting with other like-minded people in a supportive and inclusive community.

We welcome all those living a poly lifestyle or considering doing so. We are passionate about recognizing poly as a relationship choice and sharing common experiences on our many different paths. We hope you’ll join us and share yours!

"Two of my sweeties and I went to the polyamory convention in Columbus last weekend, along with a few other local folks and about 200 poly people from around the continent. We all had a great time.

Summary: If you possibly can, I recommend that you go next year.

The convention was well organized, incredibly so for a first year con. There was a good mix of discussions, classes, and fun social events. There was a great mix of people -- all ages, many different orientations and poly (or non-monogamy) styles, experience levels, etc. Anything I could imagine was there, except that I didn't find any of the really annoying con nerds. That's not a complaint. :-)

It was great to see so many people practicing polyamory successfully, and to hear their stories. It was very cool to contribute to those stories for others to learn and enjoy. And most of all, it was wonderful to be in a space where multiple loves are understood and honored. The acceptance, the feeling of "I'm not the only one" or "we're not the only ones" is very powerful and wonderful. Go somewhere where you can experience this, you will enjoy it and it just might change your life for the better"
