“Last year, I ended a two-year relationship with a man who ultimately couldn’t commit and wanted to be polyamorous.”
The article itself is titled “Dating columnist reveals how ‘Sex and the City’ ruined her life” and is as stupid as you’d expect. I only quote the sentence above because it supports “Game-aware guys being ‘poly’ or ‘open.’” I can’t know this for sure, but I’m guessing he’s a decently high-status guy who was happy to fuck the author but didn’t want to subsidize her financially. Like some high-status guys, he’s figured out that poly is an escape hatch from the “Where is this going?” conversation. She didn’t bite, but some other woman probably will.
It’s not that he “couldn’t commit.” It’s that he didn’t need or want to.
Expect to see more of this going forward. High-level guys will see poly as a means of improving retention.
