new to polyamory

I am a professor at a local university -- my intellectual interests are pretty diverse and not easily categorized. Perhaps that is one reason why I find myself becoming interested in the polyamorous lifestyle. I finished a serious, conventional relationship a few months ago and am now looking forward. I have never found the constraints of traditional relationships satisfying but I also do not find casual hookups appealing either. A woman I was seeing a while back wanted to start a triad with another man but I was not ready for it then. I wish I had been farther along but I was still a slave to convention at the time.

I would love to hear from others in the area - esp. academics, since I have an affinity for that world. But I would love to hear from any warm, supportive souls.
