I have found that I would not enter a relationship where others hold veto power.
Relationships change over time, either the opportunities for that exist or I don't want to get involved.
I want regular FTF time and within that time we do our own thing.
At least one contact with the metamor if they are considered primary, some line of communication should be open even if it is never used.
What rules and boundaries work for one relationship may not for another.

Technically I'm not solo poly either. While I hold some of the similar world views (as far as I know), I don't eschew entanglements like cohabitation. As far as I understand that's one of the defining characteristics of solo poly.

I copied this from the singlish/solopoly facebook page.

WHAT'S SINGLEISH/SOLO POLYAMORY? We are open to honest nonmonogamous relationships, but generally we do not have (and many of us don't even want) a conventional primary-style relationship -- sharing a household & finances, identifying strongly as a couple/triad, etc.

Nor do I. So I technically don't fit the solo poly definition either.
