It's kind of good to live that way because a lot of times, things don't last forever, or people move, life happens. Especially at a young age (thinking early 20s, college aged).
I wonder this too some times. I wonder if people at a younger age are doing what I used to call dating in my early 20's. I see no difference really. I used to date people and not tell other people I was dating that I was seeing others. To me that isn't poly. Poly is consentual non monogamy... anything else to me is dating... all fine and well, but I wonder why the change in name these days? Its more popular? Indicates something that either you aren't or are working on...? interesting question. Thread worthy perhaps.

Why do people do that?! GAUD! fessing up and then saying "I like you better" is just bullshit. Sorry, I just would have a hard time believing that myself. If I am better, then why didn't you respect me enough to tell me what was going on for you?! hmmmm?!
