Shall I pretend to be surprised?
Your Ideal Relationship is Polyamory

You want to have your cake... and everyone else's.
Which isn't a bad thing, if everyone else gets to eat too!
You're too much of a free spirit to be tied down by a traditional relationship.
You think relationships should be open and free, with few restrictions.

You could. But what would be the point! ;o)

Well That's Lucky!

Your Ideal Relationship is Marriage

You've dated enough to know what you want.
And that's marriage - with the right person.
You're serious about settling down some time soon.
Even if you haven't met the person you want to get hitched to!

Re: Well That's Lucky!

or not! I like to think more of myself as 'monogamous with an open mind'.

Re: Well That's Lucky!

Well actually I've always fancied having my own group of select males, but I'm afraid that's going to have to stay firmly embedded in fantasy. Shame.

Re: Well That's Lucky!

Did you see the article on BBC News Online this morning about polyandry in Nepal?

Re: Well That's Lucky!

Cool :) Can't say I fancy Nepal though. Is there a proper word for the male version of a harem?

Re: Well That's Lucky!

I read that article and wondered "What about the women who don't get husbands?" Not because they should have husbands or anything, but in a society where marriage is the norm, what role do the spinsters play? It makes no evolutionary-competitive sense to heap the reproductive burden onto one woman. Unless as a means of population control, I suppose; the population will grow far more slowly with only 1/2-1/4 (roughly, estimated from the numbers mentioned in that article only) as many women (effectively, only one per prior-generation-mother) having children as ther would be in a predominantly monogamous society. I have a feeling that the arrangement virtually guarantees a very stable population with a preponderance of (labour-optimised) males (great for recruiting Gurkhas).

But what is the fate of the single woman? Or do they take the Chinese Option?

Interesting...

Your Ideal Relationship is Friends with Benefits

You're not looking for anything serious... just something hot!
And you're little black book (or cell phone) always hooks you up.
You want nothing more than friends with benefits. No strings.
You also don't mind benefits without the friendship!
