Just wondering if this is worth exploring
Yeah, I totally think that this is an interesting question. I'm finding it really hard to answer, though.

I suppose that I would be sad if I were to somehow know for certain that I would never be with someone new again for the rest of my life. There's something really... powerful or rewarding or something about that experience. But I think that part of that experience is the, um, promise of an intimacy in the future; a new connection or relationship.

So what I'm trying to say, I guess, is that I wouldn't be really any more interested in a classic open relationship where one-night stands were allowed (but no emotional relationships) than I would be with monogamy.
