It should be mentioned that I have recently come to understand that I am what is apparently called a Relationship Anarchist which is, in short, someone who does not believe in traditional relationship restraints and instead values all relationships as equal whether it be friendship, family relationships, or romantic/sexual relationships. This does not mean I am just looking for a bunch of anonymous sex partners but it does mean that I am not interested in the traditional confines of a monogamous relationship. I prefer to let the relationship define itself by what it needs as opposed to putting it into a specific box or set of parameters. This also does not mean that I don't repsect other people's relationships. I am about full disclosure and honesty. So, obviously, if you aren't cool with this then you aren't going to be cool with me.
