I can't define it for anyone, just like no one is going to tell me friendship and a new lover fall equally in line with each other.

For the record I do see a lot of poly people that claim to only want love and not be concerned for the sex... maybe its my cynical side, but I just can't believe them. Maybe if they were more honest about their needs they might find their preferred gender more approachable.
Totally concur.

If I only wanted love and not sex, I had it from day one with GG. No need to identify as polyamorous.
