I've never discouraged any existing relationships and I thank you not to suppose that I have.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

No. You have not. And still, one gets the impression that your non-sexual romance is more disappointing than not--perhaps(?). No judgement. Just inquiry.

I apologize, AutumnalTone. I can get defensive but that's not an excuse.

Loving doe snot mean only sex. Yes it is posiible to have loving, romantic relationship, without actually having sex and I firmly believe this is also polyamory

I'm actually of 2 views concerning this. On the one hand, I agree 100% and have used this argument to say that most people are polyamorous in that they love multiple members of their family at the same time, just not sexually. On the other hand, when describing polyamory to beginners I tend to bring up the fact that it involves a sexual element. I should probably say generally. There's something else, though, and I don't think I'm the only one who feels this way; I generally want to spend more time with women I desire sexually, rather than women I don't see that way (family members, say). Family's great, don't get me wrong, but I'd like to have my own again as well; at the very least a sexual partner, if not children of my own.
