Not specifically related to Poly but an observation that applies to any dynamic;
NRE can be invigorating and exciting.
NRE can be a major distraction that makes people forget the day to day stuff such as work, friendships and cleaning our own house LOL!
NRE that involves multiple partners can be a flat out train wreck of steam rolling pace and subconscious disregard for reality when it comes to considering the emotions of others.
Experiencing NRE in the moment is easy and not where the work usually resides.
Reality and logic often crash against NRE like an unwelcome tsunami.
