Circumstantial: only if it is open, honest, and all involved parties are happy with the situation.

If it's the type of relationship where you can take both girls/guys out with you on the same date, and everyone enjoys it, more power to you. It is possible to truly love more than one person, but difficult to balance such a relationship.

You can date multiple people only if both parties agree to it. Friends with benefits is another term you can use.

The issue in question is really simple: Yes if everyone involved knows and approves of the relationship. No if everyone involved is not aware. The default position is circumstantial. I'm in a Poly relationship with a married couple. I have a relationship with both but I only actively engage sexually with the female. Everyone involved openly discusses our relationship, our views, how we are each treating one another and so forth. So with that being said, I'd like to address the people in the comments section who say things such as "to each their own, but I want someone loyal". The ignorance of statements like that is it treats all relations outside of monogamy as cheating, lying and licentious; more simply, unloyal. A simple thought: monogamy does not make you loyal. Communicating makes you loyal. Honesty makes you loyal. Empathy and acting upon one's empathy makes you loyal. Regardless of whether you are in a monogamous or polyamorous relationship, the level of commitment and loyalty involved has to do with the people involved. If you can achieve that on any scale and find contentment in your relationships then I think that is all that matters really?

No you should find one and stick with them unless you break up.

Not unless they are okay with it, which usually isn't the case.

Since you qualified it so not all partners know what's going on, no. I'm not alright with that at all.

Dating and "being in a relationship" are not the same so I find no problem, whether they know or not, that I am dating other people. Dating is just the early process to weed out those that are not a match for you. It narrows the pool to a few that you can then determine of the few who you would like to establish a relationship.

I'm an extremely loyal person, so no, I'd never even think of doing that.

If you have to be sneaky about it then it's probably worth talking about, especially when there's a chance of surprise STDs.

I barely have enough time to do anything with the one girl I have, why would I want multiples!

I actually say to my fiance that she doesnt ever need to worry about me cheating because I am simply too lazy too. Its too much work to sneak around with other girls
