I pretty much want the three C's of poly (communication, communication, communication - heh) but only with my partners/loves. I don't mind and often like meeting metamours but it's not at all a requirement for me and I don't enjoy being put into a "veto power" position. I feel that anyone I would be with is competent enough to make their own decision about who is best for them to be with. The only serious rules I attempt to impart are where my family unit (me, my husband, and our son) is concerned and to make sure that our family gets enough time together and our marriage stays stable.
Love. Love is a verb. Love is a doing word, fearless on my breath.
