I wish some of this self-questioning in my head were happening from someone else; the result would be a sense of closeness and understanding. Self-closeness doesn't really seem possible/worthwhile.

Figured out why I have such a negative emotional response to poly; dates back to traumatic events near the end of my first romantic relationship. Even without that I doubt poly would work for me, and I still more on the level of thinking society should tolerate it rather than validate or pathpave for it, but it's good to know why it's not some more neutral thing to *think* about. Perhaps knowing the why will eventually lead to that emotional response fading a bit; probably won't change my intellectual evaluation of it, but that's fine.
