Typical ignorance (true meaning). Exploring some multi-partner sex or even open relationships does NOT equal polyamory. You MAY be aware of this - she obviously isn't.

Yep, typical behavior and progression of immature relationships. Set the trap, tell em what you think they want to hear, collect your prize, then let it sit till it spoils and discard it for something fresher.

If she actually BELIEVES what you quote her as saying and you actually BELIEVE what you profess, the two of you are on opposite ends of the spectrum. There's no future here unless one or the other is willing to examine their belief system with an open mind and be prepared make changes where reality & facts conflict.
