I'm absolutely not convinced.
I think relationships stand on their own.
Yes I'm poly-but it's not "a mono or poly".
It's a relationship with Maca.
A relationship with GG.
A relationship with the two of them (which is friends only).
If I was mono, I'd still have three relationships, only the one with GG would also be friends only.
ANY type of relationship requires work. In fact, I fear in the past I've put more work into my friendships than I have in my romantic relationships.
Which very well may explain why my friendships have lasted 20+ years, but my romantic relationships have not.
