No rudeness surmised! Yeah, I would love to know what that means, myself. We are a couple who doesn't have sex? We live together, share the same bed, cuddle, there's a lot of affection...

I think I have a tendency to see her as a child of mine. She has bi-polar disorder and until very recently required a lot of that basic care and support with life tasks. I often feel like the parent/adult in our household. So maybe I have a live-in human pet?

So that is kind of what I thought it might mean. That sounds lovely! A lot of what makes me identify as polyamorous is the fact that relationships can involve all sorts of different "feeling sets" - they don't need to involve sex (or romance, or affection, or anything else in particular) to qualify as a meaningful relationship. It's great to be able to just acknowledge whatever feelings you have with someone, whatever those feelings are

Female, straight, bi-curious, open-minded?

The orientation thing seems more like a parameter than an actual accurate description of something. I have always had an attraction to females but I can count on both my hands the number of bona fide female encounters I've had in which I've felt switched on. Of those, only one led to a brief, mostly chaste relationship of sorts and one led to a "fling" wherein she'd make out with me at the club but no where else and it went on for a couple of months.

My main interest is in men at the moment but I'm loosely aware that this might be solely a product of my historical comfort zone and not a fair assessment of my orientation.

I am also open to the probability that I could come to love equally the right woman if she were introduced by a primary and we became plural at some point.

The possibilities are endless. I never know what's going to feel right later on and that's kind of the point to me.

I guess that makes me as close to a Unicorn as one can get without actually growing a horn and pooping rainbows.

Im female straight -hubs is straight. And our preference to add in our relationship is a straight male. I did the bi curious years ago when I found a female that I thought was cute and stirred my interest.. tried it.. and found well that I wasnt bi in the least. LOL Just appreciative of a hot body!

Female. Orientation... erm. I guess I'm bisexual-ish? I've been attracted to females before, and had one tiny fling with a girl once, but all my serious relationships have been with males. :shrug:
