mono is the most romantic anyone I have ever known. He still leaves me notes on my running route that are filled with love, desire and endless commitment to me and my family.... nope, No other Poly guy has topped that!

Good conversation going on though.... oh so interesting... do carry on!

Congrats! I'm not all that serious about the claim. It's just that some folk think we're less romantic, so I like to playfully chide them.

News flash - I'm not poly

For JRM: I get more playful as I get more comfortable. I do appreciate a good chiding

I have heard the less romantic thing too! I suppose if you spread yourself too thinly? Really, a lot of the couples in my life that I associate with on a day to day basis have lost romance entirely from their life... very sad, but true. If more partners can add to the romance, why not. Sometimes it takes someone else to remind what romance is like again. That is what I found with mono anyways... he brought it all back on so many levels... thanks sweets *kiss* (he's a libra after all you know )

O comon people! You gotta be kidding!

How can such a statement as "Monos are more or less romantic than polys".

How about "heteros are more or less romantic than gays".

etc.

Yeash, you folks don't REALLY buy into this...

Funny... Ha-Ha!

Yes, YGirl, I was kidding!

But there is an underlying point in the kidding -- which is that we're not necessarily any LESS romantic than monogamous folk.

You certainly are not any less romantic! If anything you remember to be more romantic more frequently to reassure your partners in my experience. This is a lesson a lot of people in mono relationships could definitely learn from

I think for me personally that it was a bit of both. I loved two people before I even knew that it had a name. It felt natural..yet confussing for me. Confussing because of the "expectation" Of only being "allowed" to love one person. Yet I was able to love two people in and amazing way. It took time to process that it was "ok" even. Guess you could even say I tried not to be Poly. But failed. A Steak is still a Steak..even when dressed as a salad.

Have to say, I'm very glad you failed!

I think the fact that it felt so natural, so normal for me makes it less of a decision and more of just a realization that it's possible. Honestly felt a LOT like when I came out and realized it really was ok and I could be who I was. Society surpresses it so much you don't even know it's an option, so I never thought about it until I was already in the relationship.
