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.
