Parts of this really sound like my philosophy of reality in my teens. For me this was NOT a depressed or unhappy philosophy - just a practical one. Since I wasn't looking for "love" I was free to experience people/situations as they came - without auditioning them for some romantic "role" in my life.

Thank you for starting a blog to share these thoughts and ideas with us - and, yes!, cool title.

Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (24+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (5+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic girlfriend and BFF
Lotus: "it's complicated"
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
