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