I'd ask for a detailed explanation as to why my relationships aren't real. It had better be good, too, or that person would no longer be included among my close friends. Indeed, I'd explain that "them sound like fightin' words."
Homey don't play those disrespect games.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
