: : : Does anyone know the term that describes someone who is love with more than one person, something like polyancrymonious???????
: : Polyamorous (adjective)-from articles and personal ads I've seen regarding groups who practice what they call polyamory (noun).
: "Poly" meaning many. Amorous (amore) meaning love or lovers. =I would think this means "Many Lovers" and not "in love" with many.
: Sidebar: Poli (many) Tics (blood sucking insects)
: = Politics
I agree, Q, in that I think using "polyamorous" the way the above-mentioned advertisers do is a little euphemistic. Still, the word is close enough to the approximation given in the original query that it's likely what the person was looking for.
