Hear hear! This wasn't what the thread was intended to be about, but sure, I agree with this. Like I said a little above, it's not my use of the word exclusivity that I'm asking about... It's that others have been trying on the term for size. And finding it sometimes doesn't fit.

As for any relationship, no matter how you spend time together, of course it's about what you do when you're together (or apart, but talking asynchronously, or not even talking but just keeping the other person in mind).
