I haven't persuaded anyone who's monogamous to become poly, but I still like getting them to think a bit atleast (and I have managed that). Seriously, what is so "different" about romantic love vs. the more platonic kind, -especially- if sexuality isn't involved? Actually that bring up a question; can romantic love truly be removed entirely from sexuality? I wonder...
