To me, "committed" is the opposite of "casual", but not the same thing as "exclusive" at all. Commitment means we wish the relationship to last as long as it can, and we should work together to solve any problems in the relationship. It's not something we can (or should) walk away from easily, but it's not the "till death do us part" kind of deal either.
I agree. I am committed to my friends, definitely. It's just that that is a less clearly defined arrangement (with most of them anyway).

@IP : I enjoyed reading your thoughts about commitment. They were very spot-on : I definitely agree with what you had the say. I can never give a life-long guarantee, on anything. Assuming otherwise is simply silly and naive.
