That where this foundation thing gets "funny"...because even at its root it is different for everyone...
Would you say that you are more "situational poly" rather than "fundementally poly" Because I do see friends as potential future lovers. I see potential future lovers everywhere. But in actuallity, very few of the people I have dated in the last 5 years have become lovers. So- I am not neccesarily situational poly, but poly by nature and just waiting for the right people to show up.
The key to life is in being fully engaged and peacefully detached simultaneously and authentically in each moment.
