You absolutely WILL suffer and be miserable if you don't have sex with other people?
The longer I'm here, the more I question the concept that people 'are' poly or 'are' mono. I'm quite capable of falling in love with two or three people at once, always have been, and I don't consider myself poly, nor do I feel that I must act on it.
Happiness and suffering are largely choices we make, and realizing we don't have
to pursue something just because we want it can be a powerful growth experience.
