So polyamory and polygamyWhat's the difference between the two
Polyamory = Greek word for...Poly = manyAmor= lovePolygamy = Having more than one wife or husband at the same time. (and it's usually only one of the primary partners that get the extras, and that primary partner is almost always the male)Polyandry = A woman with multiple husbands. I'm no expert on this stuff, but I've talked to a lot of poly people and even been on a few dates with poly women. It's all a facade. They were all basket cases. It's like... they didn't choose polyamory, polyamory chose them. If your boyfriend or husband wants a second or third woman in his life, and you don't want to lose him, you can justify it by claiming to be an enlightened polygamous person. It's complete bullshit, and the jealousy is thick enough to cut with a knife. Swinging makes much more sense to me.
The key word you mentioned is: "desires." I agree.

In name, only.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Just because you don't believe in it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist
I believe in Santa. Go on OK Cupid and read the poly profiles that married women write. "I just want to make this clear to those of you that are reading this: I'm in a very loving relationship with my husband, Todd, and our lives are perfect. He is the love of my life. But we both realized that we both have so much love to give, that we want to share it with others. Opening up our hearts with others has brought a deeper meaning to our marriage. We just want to expand and grow our lives and share the bounty of love we have for each other, by sharing that love with other life partners."Seeking:Long-term, dating, hookupsMy friend, there is no love in a hookup. And don't take my word for it, go make a free profile on that site and see for yourself. I had a delightful conversation with a married lady from Canada. Her and husband are poly. She said aside from her loving marriage, she has two boyfriends, and two fuck buddies. I asked her what she was looking for, and she said that one of her fuck buddies was getting married, so she wanted a replacement. Cool. She also told me that her loving husband doesn't have any girlfriends or regular fuck buddies. He just likes to go to swinger parties and fuck as many women as he can. Yeah... it's all just one big lovefest in the poly world. :)
Ahhh yes, Okcupid. The comprehensive authority on all things polyamory. You should definitely conflate what you see there to everyone in the world, there's definitely no way that anyone differs from your own anecdotal experiences.
Well, I do realize that you are by far the GAG authority on polyamory. Aside from your brilliant contribution..."Yes, some people are polyamorous"you are in fact a "Yoda." That right there says a lot. My talking to a lot of "poly" people doesn't hold a candle to being a GAG Yoda. I will concede that.
