I am in an LTR, and after several years of some good times, I feel that I never really had the opportunity to date and have sex without any form of relationship or commitment. This is my 5th LTR, and I have always felt this way after a couple of years. I'm not sure if I have just not dated enough, or if monogamy just isn't for me. Furthermore, I don't really know any "nice" way of bringing this up.

i think biologically we are not really built for monogamy, otherwise we would have been built to no longer be attracted to things after we already have it. Know what I mean?
I've almost strictly had LTR's as well. I also get the feeling from time to time that I wish I was single and free to mingle... The thing you have to remind yourself is that if you were single is the life you're imaging or yearning for what you realistically believe would come to fruition?
Most people who are monogamists still don't necessarily feel like they are at times. If you were single would you really be on the prowl getting numbers and having casual sex? Would you really trade that for the stable relationship you have?
If yes then tell the person that you love them but aren't positive that you're ready for a monogamist relationship. Perhaps you need to get some polygamy out of your system or perhaps you'll just realize that the grass always appears to be greener on the ther side of the fence
