I was also queer and poly identified in my 20's (still queer!), so I get some of this. You want to do what you want to do, have life experiences, and do it in a way that you think is ethical. It also made sense because it was what a lot of my peer group was doing. For me, I also can look back on it and say that I liked the complexity and the drama, and I defininetly used it as an excuse to run roughshod over other people's feelings and my own. I don't think Polly is being judgy. I think Polly is being real. It doesn't matter what kind of relationship you are in. You still shouldn't be an ass. And, yes, if you're second-guessing yourself a lot, go with your gut. You already know what you want to do. Just do it and clean up the mess later.

Pretty much my entire career has been as a policy wonk in local governments (big cities, at that!) and I have to tell you that it's about as silly and personality-driven as P&R makes it out to be.
@Dave Craft Suprime mortgages are NOT altruistic, friend. They are also about unchecked greed.
