I love this... thank you for this reminder. connection and compatibility out last way longer than just sex.
In terms of people having tendencies to poly or mono; I don't think I have a tendency to one or the other so much as I tend to place more importance on some things (devotion and fortitude) and less on others (sexual faithfulness, chemical love). Unfortunately, we are raised to believe sexual faithfulness equals love despite seeing and having experienced ourselves, that people don't always love who they have sex with. Even the words "I love you" isn't always said with sincerity. sometimes I think people say it because of the emotional response it stands to elicit in the person hearing it.
