That makes total sense. And honestly, I've never ruled out the idea of being monogamous at some point or another in life. It could happen or it might not happen. But my reasons are not because I would see poly as too hard or monogamy as a more normal thing. It's more about being open to relationships in any form the come to me. And I just don't see that much of a difference between them. Plus I've learned to never say never.....
