I waffled on this one. In general I view mono vs. poly as describing relationships not people. On the other hand if one is open to more than one romantic relationship at a time, even if they are in NO relationships currently, then I would still think of them as "poly". (Kind of like I think someone can be gay/straight/bi even if they are currently celibate).

I picked moderately poly for me - I'm happy in my current poly relationship but for long stretches of my life I was just with MrS and was perfectly happy with that as well (open to but not actively seeking other relationships).
