I would say this is probably true, but not sure what a polyamory/mono chart would look like. I created one based on the Kinsey scale for hetorsexual/homosexual. (See the attachment.) The top is hetro/homo and the bottom is poly/mono. Maybe that's what it would be like???

Anyway....the other thing to remember is that sometimes we change. At one time in my life, I considered myself to be a 6 on the Kinsey scale (exclusively homosexual) and I was in a monogamous lesbian relationship for 12 years. But, after that ended I have lived an exclusively heterosexual the other end of the scale.....being in only heterosexual monogamous it's all open!!

So based on that, I guess I would say that "Everyone is Bisexual and Polyamory Underneath".....NOT

The key to life is in being fully engaged and peacefully detached simultaneously and authentically in each moment.
