Poly quiz, just for fun
Came up with this today after asking myself what I would be personally interested in thinking/writing about:
1) Define "polyamory" in a sentence or phrase.
2) Give us a quick snapshot of yourself. Whatever you want to share in a few sentences, including whether or not you ID as poly.
3) How many partners/lovers do you currently have if any? Tell us their names/pseudonyms and one or two things about them, including their role in your life (occasional fuckbuddy, spouse, romantic-but-not-sexual LDR, etc) and whether or not they have any contact or relationship with each other. Have you ever had more partners at a time than you have now?
4) Do you have an "ideal" poly configuration? If so, what is it? If not, why not (haven't figured it out yet, don't believe in "ideal configurations", etc.)?
5) Are you out about the role of poly in your life all of the time, some of the time, or none of the time? If some of the time, when? Are you satisfied with your level of outness?
6) Do you think that some ways of having relationships are inherently better or worse than others (poly vs mono, heirarchical poly vs egalitarian poly, etc)? If so, why?
7) What are the best things about poly to you? What are the worst things?
8) Could you ever see yourself being happily monogamous?
9) Would you recommend poly to others who may not have considered it? How about to your kids if you have any now or ever end up having any?
10) Free space! Either leave blank or write anything else you want to say or anything you want to ask future quiz-takers!
