Default Polyamorous But Currently Happily Monogamous

I just wanted to share my experience here in case anyone else encounters this. I always think it's helpful to see that others have the same experience as you to help you feel "okay" and not alone.

I have been polyamorous before I knew there was a name for it or that anyone else was "this way", but I have fallen in love with someone and am currently happily monogamous. I have no interest in anyone else nor do I feel the need to have any sort of relationship with anyone outside of my boyfriend.

In the interest of full disclosure I must reveal that, as a couple, we are interested in "swinging" and we are casually persuing this activity, although not with much focus or any sort of urgency. I theorize that the knowledge of this future possibility may be satisfying some sort of polyamorous need on my part.

I do think that romantic or sexual persuasion is a fluid thing and can change throughout one's life and am aware that my current satisfaction with monogamy may be temporary, but thought it was worthwhile to put it out there and get feedback and possibly be a mirror for anyone else who has or will experience this.
