I am somewhat reserved around new people but become assertive around those I know. My assertive side can definitely be coaxed out during a good discussion though. lately I have been trying to work on this and be more outgoing from the start but it's going to take some work.
I am disinterested in monogamy but not necessarily in commitment. The polyamorous lifestyle has appealed to me for a while and I recently began living it. My boyfriend and girlfriend are also together making us something of a triangle. We used to be friends, decided to enhance that relationship and it's been great. I honestly think the social pressure towards finding one person to be your everything does more harm than good.
