I am not any one of my friends. I am me. A completely seperate person.

If you meet one of them and you meet me, and you're really interested in them, but you think it's not mutual, don't flirt with me.

If you meet me first and then you meet one of them and you realize you're more into them, don't continue to act interested in me just because you think it's somehow the socially correct thing to do.

Don't sit around and tell me how hot one of my friends' girlfriends is when we're on a date. Don't tell me about how she's more your "type" and then expect me to keep going on dates with you. (Also, don't say you'll go out somewhere with me, and then take your other girlfriend there instead.)

I am not a particularly jealous person, even though I joke about being jealous often. But I am not interchangeable.

Just for future reference. No, nothing I'm particularly upset about either. It's just come up multiple times now in regards to poly relationships. Maybe that's part of the nature of the beast, this sort of interchangeability. Love the one you're with and all that jazz. Or maybe I'm just being overly sensitive about something that's not even the reality of any of those situations. Still thought it was worth noting.

There's love-the-one-you're-with, and then there's being socially daft. Talking about the hotness/type suitability of another person while on a date with someone else seems pretty thoughtless to me.

But it's true, she is absolutely adorable. ;)
