Especially since it's not always "complicated", at least not in the way I understand that status to mean. I always figured "it's complicated" is for people with those relationships where they haven't completely defined or committed to anything, but they know there's something there... or else they're in the midst of a trial separation, etc. IOW, I always assume "it's complicated" means they're not exactly sure where they stand... whereas with poly, you often know exactly where you stand.
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
