I figure that sort of thing arises more from codependency issues than trying to prove tolerance or somesuch.

As in, "I'm afraid this relationship will end, despite the fact that I knew that was a distinct possibility from the outset." One has to be prepared for any relationship to end prior to entering it, I think, to be prepared for it in the first place.
When speaking of various forms of 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.
