To me polyamory is the ability and desire to openly, honestly, and romantically love more than one person at a time. Many people find that polyamory offers a more authentic way of expressing who they are and the love they have to share.
Who are the polyamorists, you ask? They come from all walks of life. There is no particular criteria in terms of social class, personal wealth, religion, race, sexual orientation, age, political philosophy or world view. Much more important are honesty, openness, trust, love, commitment, patience, and egalitarianism.
Monogamy is an equally valid way to love and is more suitable for some. Polyamory is no better and no worse, but instead simply another valid way of expressing love and devotion.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with obedience, jealousy nor fear. It is there most pure, perfect, and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve.
