Default Quick Placeholder... Will edit later

Just a quick placeholder for now, since I don't really have much time...

Copperhead wrote this in one of his recent blog posts, and it really hit home:
7. If I'm not in touch with my friends I stop feeling the friendship.
Except, for me, I'm fine with dropping out of touch with friends. I can pick right back up where I left off. With romantic relationships, however? When Chops and I are apart, and we don't have a lot of contact, I feel the relationship lose intensity. I need to reconnect.

There's something in here related to the whole time thing, and there's more I thought about after sleeping on it last night, but that's going to have to wait until I have more time of my own. Good observation of Copperhead's, though - definitely gave me some food for thought.
Dramatis personae:
Me: Mono. Divorced, two kids (DanceGirl, 15; and PokéGirl, 12), two cats, one house, many projects.
Chops: My partner. Poly.
Xena: Chops' other nesting partner, Poly. Also in a relationship with Shaggy
Noa: Chops' other other partner (heh). Married, Poly.
Shaggy: Poly, in a relationship with Xena
Choplet: Chops' son
