Thanks for the harsh words. Sometimes people like me need to hear them. I've also had those thoughts nagging at me in the back of my mind for awhile now but convinced myself it was all just bc this type of thing was new to me. It's time I rethink things. Thanks for everything, all of you

My words were meant kindly, not harshly.

I am glad you were already wondering/thinking on those lines yourself though. To be looking out for your own health IS self respecting behavior.

The polyshipping might be new to you, but you know what? Whether a monoship or a polyship or some other model?

There's just some people who are UNHEALTHY dating partners and it is best to steer clear of them in ANY shape relationship!

I hope things become healthier for you.

Some people are just "too poly" I think!
Very much agree with you there!
Some people just want lots of casual sex, maybe are NRE junkies... My bf has neither characteristic, but it seems he just loves the ladies. However, there is such a thing as spreading yourself too thin. He may think he's handling all his relationships well, keeping things balanced, giving us all enough time and attention. However, his thoughts on this may not, do not reflect my experience on this end of his juggling act. And I've told him so, and recently it seems it's affected his behavior in positive ways!

It's always good to speak up, even when things get uncomfortable for a while.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
