Yea, that's kind of been our observation/experience too. Practicing "polyamory" in it's purest, theoretical form requires much more time & energy than probably most people have available. But I guess our hope would be that the choice of reaching out to others in whatever capacity anyone is capable of, would bring benefits to many in the quality & variability of their relationships. Increasing happiness and minimizing pain & drama would seem to be a primary goal ?
