Re (from feelyunicorn):
"What I've noticed when I talk to monogamists is that they use the word 'relationship' to mean a monogamous relationship. Therefore, wanting to have multiple partners is tantamount to not wanting a relationship ..."
Oh man, isn't that the truth.

Re (from feelyunicorn):
"Have you encountered this mono-monopoly over the word 'relationship' often? How annoying is it?"
On a scale of 1 to 10, it's about 7.75 annoying. I've encountered it in a lot of magazine articles, stuff like that. And just think, when two lovers ask each other, "Are we in a relationship?" ... what they really mean is (and everyone knows it), "Are we going to be romantically exclusive now?"

Re (from AutumnalTone):
"I'd likely offer the rejoinder that they'll probably eventually develop the capacity for true loving relationships when they meet 'the Other One.' Just wait and see."
LOL ...

"It goes along with the 'so you're afraid of commitment' jibe."
It sure does.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
