Hi, I was wondering if you were aware of a term to describe someone who enjoys both monogamous relationships as well as polyamorous ones. Like is there a term to describe being capable of liking both poly/mono relationships?

I don’t know of any “official” terms, but honestly, there is no Linguistic Academy Of Polyamory laying out words for the poly community. It’s tempting to feel like “if there’s a word for it, it’s real and valid,” but try to let that go. You are you, and you can find and use whatever terms work for you.

Some terms this blog and its readers have come up with are:

  • mono/poly, poly-mono or just monopoly
  • werepoly
  • polyflexible
  • bipoly
  • polyamorish

If you find one you like or that works better for you, send it along!
