I had exactly the same feeling when watching the Bachelorette! It's ironic that such a mononormative dating show serves as an excellent demonstration that one can love multiple people simultaneously. However, once they picked the final winner, all the others were immediately demoted to "just friends." Isn't it sad?
Not sure if it has been mentioned already, but I think the movie Imagine Me & You could have a poly ending.
