RedPepper has a NSBF (non sexual boyfriend), so maybe she'll chime in here ... I believe she's also tagged things with NSBF.
While it's not something I would find possible, I certainly believe in "emotional" cheating, so I see how this deep love that goes beyond friendship but has not been consumated (whatever the reason) fits into the poly spectrum.
