You're not naive. You are being respectful of potential partners
Any other way is almost decietful in my humble opinion. The general population is monogamously inclined so it's best to find someone who understands your way of loving before they or you fall deeper into the relationship.
I would seriously lose my mind if that was sprung on me LOL!
