You can be poly and protective;you simply need to trust your partners.
You can be poly and value each of your partners much as any mono partner; you simply need to understand that time spent together is only one way to measure value (and the laziest way, in my opinion).
You can be poly and develop deep connections with each of your partners; you simply need to be emotionally mature enough to accept that you are not their only deep connection.
You can even be poly and jealous; you simply need to value your partners’ happiness and realize that sometimes an emotional response can only be controlled, not eradicated.
You can even be poly and love too much. It’s not a free-for-all, and sometimes a new partner is simply not in the cards. You simply have to be mature in how you handle your changing needs by communicating and working things through.
These are retorts to common arguments I see for requiring monogamy. There is nothing wrong with choosing monogamy because it is what you want. There is everything wrong with bullshit and, even indirectly, belittling someone else’s lifestyle for the sake of your self esteem.
