I agree with this. I now acknowledge I am naturally poly. I was in a mono relationship for 33 yrs, and suppressing that part of my personality was damaging to both me and my ex.

Yes. Now that I am free of the marriage that didnt suit me, I am much more open and honest with all the people I love and/or date. I don't have to hide my crushes or attractions anymore.
