Polyamory =/= Polygamy

This little beauty rolled in a few days ago.

"wow, powerful profile, believe me, you kind of profile screens away 98% of guys. that is wonderful. I love your idea of polygamy because it is the real definition of freedom and equality. I love making friends with people value freedom. Talking to ladies with the ideal of getting laid in mind only ends up in depression. I love to hang out with mature ladies and ideals and experience. I hope you take me as a real friend."

Let's go make friends with Merriam-Webster, shall we?

poly-am-ory noun: the state or practice of having more than one open romantic relationship at a time

po-lyg-a-my noun: the state or practice of being married to more than one person at the same time

Just a wee bit of a difference there, yes? I reread my profile and I do state that I'm polyamorous. I couldn't help myself and replied to this guy, I just couldn't help myself. You wanna know what I said, right?

"I'm sorry, I'm not a Mormon."
