Yeah, right... Same with my parents, my three brothers and my friends...
YES!!! Why do people assume that we're capable of loving 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 3 siblings, and 21 2/3 friends, but incapable of loving more than one lover? Why doesn't it surprise them that I don't get jealous when my friend(s) has/have other friends, but they can't get their heads around the fact that I don't get jealous when my lover(s) has/have other lovers?... Or - as you point out here - why do they think that people are so interchangeable that the death of one can just be covered over by the presence of another?

No, I'm not hoarding any of them: they're all still available if you're interested in a relationship with them. It's the monogamous people (or rather, those that expects/require monogamy) who do the hoarding!

What? No! We're both poly, what would we be monogamous together? I mean, I guess we don't have other partners right now, but... No, really, just no.
Nice one!
