Monogamy... I don't get it. Look, maybe you just think I'm a horn dog. But I'm not, all the time, just when I have too many fireball shots. Anyway, I don't think monogamy makes a lot of sense, or at least I don't understand why not being monogamous is frowned upon. There are so many people out there, really interesting people. Is it just a little ridiculous that we lock ourselves down to one individual, one personality, for the rest of our freaking lives? How will you ever get to know someone else on that inmate a basis ever again? Anyway, what are your thoughts?

I don't frown in people not being monogamous unless they've agreed with a partner to be monogamous and then go against that.
I personally am very monogamous. I wouldn't be comfortable being part of a polyamourous relationship, but I respect that that's what's right for some people, and as long as everyone involved consents then I think that's cool.
I'm just very introverted; I don't 'click' with people very often, and it drains me to spend too much time with people as a rule. I like being devoted to just one partner, and for him to feel the same about me. I know I'd probably feel jealous in a polyamourous relationship and/or guilty because I know I'd always have a 'favourite' if I were to date more than one person. And stressed because of my introversion. I'm much better one on one even with friends, let alone with sexual relationships; I'm not even into the idea of a threesome.
Again, I think it's totally cool if monogamy isn't for you, you just need to find partners who feel the same way; they're definitely out there :) . And other people being monogamous shouldn't infringe on your life; we should all just be accepting of one another :)
Peace haha :30

having an intimate relationship with someone is costly and resource demanding. You have to put in numerous hours and dollars. I think this is a contributing factor for why so many prefer monogamy, and lots of people are possessive and don't like to share their significant other.2
