I don't see any difference between doing poly when you're young and doing poly when you're old. I can't say as I've ever met anybody who thought age made any more of a difference in poly relationships than in mono relationships, either.
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.
