There can be no set answer to that question. Everyone is different.

Right, that's why I'm asking everyone, it's a personal opinion. I'm not seeking a text book answer, I want your personal opinion. Or at the very least thoughts on the subject

I only speak for myself since this subject is very subjective.

For me it 2. Due to time restraint and I like my relationships to be equal.

I'm sorry. I guess I just don't see the point in taking a poll if there's no relatable information. Knowing other's bursting points doesn't tell you what's "normal" or really help work anything out about your own situation. At least to me. If it helps you, I hope you get what you need.

I am at my poly saturation point of two. With my job, photography, and fire performing, I don't have the time to make sure more than that would get considerable time for a long lasting and committed relationship.

If I was to do any more than that I would end up cutting ties with friends and I'm not okay with that.

Some people just like having conversations. Like talking about one's favorite movie.the information being shared doesn't have to be useful for anything
