I have only one lover at the moment, but since I am consciously open and willing to having another lover, besides, that makes me polyamorous. You would be polyamorous if you were also consciously willing and able and to have more than one lover at a time. You needn't even desire this to happen, you only need to be consciously willing and able to love two at a time in order to qualify for club membership .... Okay, I'm kidding. There's no club!
... in order to qualify as poly-.
[I do not use the term "lover" to refer to merely a sexual partner, but to one with whom one is mutually
committed in a loving relationship of a "romantic" sort.]
