I could agree with this. I think as long as I have been "open" I have been more poly than I thought. I have been hanging out with and enjoying myself with other women for a long. Not usually sexually but I have been building emotional bonds that come and go (very transient here so people don't last long)
I don't think I can turn mine off. I do think some people could be indifferent to the prospect. But again, thats not turning it off, thats just not being concerned.
