Oh my god. I'm getting tired of that reaction when I tell people I'm poly. ;_; I suppose I'm open to the idea that one day I may switch over to monogamy, but it rubs me the wrong way that people think that this is a 'phase' or 'what young people do' rather than my choice lifestyle, that I want to stick with indefinitely -- perhaps forever.
Edit: Not to mention, I am settled down. I'm in a committed relationship and I'd like for any other relationships I find to be just as committed and serious.
Any thoughts from others on the matter? Thanks.
LOL I am 41...am I still young enough to be whooping it up? YAY!!! Naw I'm just committment-phobic despite being in a totally committed relationship/marriage for 25 years. So it never changes hun, it's an erroneous belief that will take time to undo. For instance my grandfather explained to me, quite seriously, that black people have bones that white people don't have! Not that their bones are different densities or something...well, sane, but completely different. He said autopsies proved it that there are bones in their skeletons that white people don't have. Then proceeded to show me a 1920s science book that actually LISTED these so called extra bones! In reality they were alternate latin names for the leg bones. Clearly this is ridiculous but the belief persisted through generations. Give it time and carve your own way, be proud of who and what you are and accept no compromise.
Tell then they are DAMN right you are too young to limit yourself when there's a whole buffet of life experiences for you to sample! Suggest they look a bit life anemic and wonder if they have a living disorder that makes them want to look so skeletal....then wander off smiling.
