You Are Monogamous and Your Partner Is Poly?

I have no idea how to create those fancy links where a word or phrase leads to an article, so please bear with me here.
An email from Submissive Guide caught my eye this morning.

With all the poly discussion I have been having with a close friend lately, and with one of my favorite shows nearing its season finale, I needed to research this myself. The term “Mono/Poly” isn’t something I am familiar with but the concept does make sense. Google to the rescue! I came across this article.

I thought it was full of valuable information. One quote really stood out to me.

“Love may be infinite, at least in theory, but time and resources are not.”

Whether you are poly or monogamous, this statement is true. None of this changes how I feel about poly for myself, but it does help me understand how some identify as Monogamous in a poly dynamic. It has also given me information for more clarification for my list of hard limits. The clearer the better, right? So why am I sharing this? I am sharing just to wake your brain up, to make you think. These are heavy thoughts for a sleepy Monday. 🙂 And in case you were wondering, this is the favorite show I mentioned.

Because I can’t find the right link on TLC’s website.
