I just read this, and wanted to comment.

I disagree. long distance relationships are hard, period. Mono or not. the reason someone would break up is if needs are not being met, regardless of the relationship style. Some long distance mono relationships work, some don't - just like poly ones. I think it would be very hard for me personally to get my needs met to keep ANY long distance romance alive for a long period of time. That has very little to do with freedom to see others - more to do with time needed together with anyone I am with.

sorry to side track a bit. just wanted to say that.
