    The Archetype of Serial Monogomy

    I am the true serial monogomist.  I've been in and out of dozens of relationships my entire life, well over thirty of them. I get out of a relationship and the first thing I've done is try to get into another relationship. On rare occasions I've either dated multiple people...

    IDK, I am just rethinking this monogamy thing

    altogether. I gave it my all, and did better than most of the people I was with. So monogamy did me little good. If monogamy was a friend then the relationship would be WAY off kilter -- WAY one sided. So monogamy has done me few favors and I think I might have to let it...

    I Sure Am!

    I have never seen the need to risk my relationship for something that isn't going to last beyond one evening.

    I tend to jump from one relationship to the

    next. I like being in a relationship and feel sad and lonely without one.
