Away Message Thoughts: Getting Even

Here's an interesting thought from one of my co-worker's away message. I
read it a couple of times to fully understand it. It makes quite an
interesting point.

"The only people to get even with are those who have helped you"

I would like to think it applies, ever so slightly, to me because he
helped me last week (jump-start a drained battery) and I helped him this
week (a ride to pick up his car).

What makes a person polyamorous?

What qualifies someone to consider themselves as polyamorous?

Interest in multiple people?
No desire to put one person above another?
No desire to be monogamous / exclusive?
Experience in a polyamorous relationship?

The first three apply to me. A lack of the last has me question the others. I don't want to be just some sleaze bag, so I try to honest and upfront about this with anyone I go out with. Most of them seem to misunderstand what I'm talking about or assume I'll change my mind, but until that becomes a problem I can't be preemptive about not seeing them. If I've given them all the facts and let them make their own decision on if they still want to see me then it's not my job to keep them from hurting themselves.

So where does this leave me? Still feeling guilty, and especially so when they ask who I'd rather be with.
