Well, if you're a hot bi babe sitting around waiting for a couple to get involved with--and you only want to be involved with a couple and not have any other relationships--then you are, indeed, a unicorn.
If you're not looking to get involved with just a couple, then you're a hot bi babe lacking in all mystical, magical powers.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
