What do you mean by "single" then, if you have a few lovers? Do you just mean unmarried? Or that none of your lovers is more than casual? Maybe it means something different in Germany than it does in the states (are you German?). Tristan Taormino has a term for unpartnered poly people: solo poly. I think the word "solo" fits certain poly situations better than "single."

There's a thread for solo poly peeps here, where you can talk about and what you dream and hope for in your ideal poly situations. Feel free to contribute: Solo poly people - what's your ideal?

The world opens up... when you do.
