In talking to some friends about wanting to be poly, they both reacted similarly:

"But that's just setting yourself up to be hurt!"

Like a mono relationship doesn't??? As if there's some magical situation that guarantees never feeling hurt? [sigh]

Another friend said:

"Geez, I can't even find one man to be with and you want two or three?"

Subtext: "How can you be so selfish???" [another sigh]
