I'm beginning to think you are right about this. It's like, instead of having a conversation she's just dangling vague and irrelevant bait and chuckling as we all chase it around.

I didn't say anything remotely inflammatory in my first several posts. But you didn't choose to respond to those. Someone else did. In my response to that person-I commented on my opinion of your definitions. I did not say YOU are delusional. I said your definition is delusional. THAT would be the type of clarity I was referring to regarding what you write.
There IS a difference.

I think it is more of a case of someone who can not see past their own personal definitions.

Default Definitions

Very much so. Everyone has their own definitions of terms. With as varied as things can get, this is bound to happen.

It is extremely important to be a clear communicator when you're poly. Here, it doesn't matter so much, but when you're trying to negotiate with 2 or more romantic partners, it is crucial. So, practice here, apply with partners.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
