That's your right to make that decision. Maybe monogamy is your true choice and there is nothing wrong with that.

it is hurt I do not need to open myself up to again.
I think the hurt was from getting involved with (and thinking you could fix) a highly dysfunctional person though....not from trying to practice polyamory. It would be like saying monogamy doesn't work after getting involved with a dysfunctional person in a monogamous relationship. One has nothing to do with the other.

Good luck to you!!!
