This, all of it:
How many times have you (or others) failed at a mono relationship? Do you recommend we all reconsider mono based on your failures? Why then did you make this post about poly?
Passing out advice to "all subs" based on you own poly failures is very narrow minded. Presuming other submissives would be failures at poly does not speak well of your opinion for them. You seriously think they should "reconsider" poly? Do you don't think their first consideration of it wasn't thorough enough and they have to heed your words of warning? Just because you failed, don't presume they will.
If your warnings were valid, are you heartless and don't care to warn us Dom/mes too? Why leave us out? To the observant and experienced, it speaks volumes about what is going on in your head to make you react like that. We may reply "without knowing details" behind what makes you foolishly post a whiny victim thread in guise of a warning, but we don't really need those specifics do we?
So . . . now you are starting to see exactly how revealing your OP and replies are. Do I really need all the details to see you are having an emotional reaction and lashing out?
. . . . jealousy always rears its ugly head.
No it doesn’t. Maybe it’s you baby? From what I see in this thread, you appear narrow minded, defensive, pretty touchy emotionally and have low opinions of others. I wouldn't think poly is the best avenue for someone like you.
My advice is to think before you open your mouth. Maybe you could make a new post that says, "Our poly failed and I would like some feedback from those whom are successful." Then let your OP tell your story, including how you are heartbroken, defensive and emotional about it. Because acting like a brat, posting warnings and implying you no longer admire people won't fly here. I don't give a fuck if you respect or admire me . . . you're just another brat that hasn't found her way in the world yet and this post is your way of stamping your feet and holding your breath to get attention.
You're lucky LP, or any of us have replied to this troll bait with any sincerity. You might try acting like a submissive, show some gratitude and respect, start seeking the guidance you cannot find within yourself and leave dispensing advice to those with the experience and discipline to do so with authority. A broken heart or failed relationship of any style doesn’t make you special or excuse tantrums. It makes you part of the human race. So shut up, have a cookie and try again.
