    Cos I Do It Right!

    And if you are doing it right, then you should not have the desire, time or the energy for more than one person.

    Of Course My Reason Will Make You Laugh..........

    I am a one man woman. Why? Because I can barely handle being in a relationship with one man let alone trying to carry on with 2 or more. lol. I mean seriously, you can pull sh*t like that off?Furthermore, I'm a jealous & insecure lover so there is NO WAY in hell that I'd be able...

    Its All Worth While.

    It is all worth while. There is nothing like coming home to your partner (in my case wife of 29 years) and know they will be there for you as well as you are there for them. Not having been throwing your bits all over the town. It shows that you are a couple and love each other...

    He or no one. Only him.

    I Don't Do Polyamory.

    I'm in a relationship with a man who is polyamorous. It was never an issue until he fell in love with someone. Now I feel torn and hurt. I'm unsure whether to continue the relationship or not. I love him so much and it would kill me to have to end anything. And I know it would...

    No Matter What....

       I have always been faithful. I'm definitely a one man woman. I have never liked the idea of cheating. If you find yourself straying from the one you are suppose to love, then you need to move on because you can't love that person enough.      I'm...

    Whichgamous? Wha-morous?

    Okay, I'll nip.   I think it's kind of funny that some people ask if monogamy died.  People say things like being different because monogamy seems so rare these days.  It's really all a matter of perspective.  When I was polyamorous, it seemed like...

    And Happy

    I have a great husband who loves me for me, and I love him just the way he is. We have discussed alternative lifestyles and how they would affect our relationship. The conclusion was that two was plenty for both of us - so monogomy it is

    True Love

    I firmly believe that a truly loving, and sexually satisfying relationship can only be had within a monogamous relationship. This is the only kind of relationship in which true, unconditional love can be experienced. All other kinds I believe are just selfish , and wanting to...

    I Only Have Eyes For You

    I don't know what it is nowadays but it seems that you can't live your life without knowing someone who has cheated on their partner or was cheated on by their partner. It is all the norm from your teachers to the tabloids. But for me it is not something I would ever do. I've...

    I am monogamous, not

    because of a religion, not because society says so (even though society seems more to be urging people to have sex with each other) but because I find it far more stable and enriching than polygamous relationships. I have many reasons for being monogamous. Not only do I know...

    Just Because.

    I'm not morally against anything but monogamy.  I'm not only making myself available to one guy.  I don't believe that it's the only way to live your life.  I just...am. I don't really think, given the opportunity, I'd date more than one person at a time, but at...

    What Is Right For Me

    When I was very young, I almost had an affair with a married man, and I felt horrible. Afterward, I had a "relationship" with a man who was openly polyamorous, and that felt horrible (I really couldn't handle it and behaved badly). And finally, I have been cheated...

    Monogomy

    I didn't use to be monogamous. I mean, I never cheated on anyone but I did go through a phase where I was dating around. All the boys knew I wasn't seeing them formally and I actually had a great time playing the field for awhile. But now I've found the love of my life and don't...

    I am 100% monogamous, I never cheat, and who I am with I am with them for life... unless they cheat on me or is abusive. In that case, I still won't cheat, but will dump them right away! BUT, many others have told me (over and over) that my way of being loyal and...

    I Am

    I've always been monogamous in all of my relationships. When I do fall for someone, I fall hard, and couldn't even dream of cheating. I'm bisexual, and this may be weird, but if I am with a woman, I usually feel a much stronger emotional connection with her, and so if she is...

    Not For Me

     I have tried monogamy, but find it difficult, due to trust issues of mine, to be monogamous. Actually, when I enter a relationship, I am more than capable of being monogamous, but... I feel much more alive, if I am free and, capable of keeping my relationships casual. It's...
