My children each need "alone time" with me from time to time. It isn't that I don't appreciate the time all together with them, but I recognize that they each need time to bond with me one-on-one.

My metamour and I also each need that "alone time" with our partner. I would not want to share every available moment with all of us, simply because *I* don't love her. I don't want to spend my time with her like I do with him. And while I do enjoy the time we spend together, I'm not looking for more "together time".

I suppose if our needs were incompatible, then we wouldn't be in a relationship, but he appreciates the alone time as well, and it works for us.
Dramatis personae:
Me: Mono. Divorced, two kids (DanceGirl, 14; and PokéGirl, 11), two cats, one house, many projects.
Chops: My partner. Poly. In relationships with me, Xena, and Noa.
Xena: Poly. In relationships with Chops and Noa, and dating others.
Noa: Married, Poly. In relationships with Chops and Xena (individually).

Blog thread: A Mono's Journey Into Poly-Land (or, "Aw hell, there's no road map?!")
Slightly more polished blog with a mono/poly focus: From Baltic to Boardwalk
