I don't see any difference between an old flame and a possible new flame--and any relationship that might turn romantic involves the same sort of work as any other.

When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
