Right around Valentine’s Day a friend of mine sent me this interesting link, which I just took a look at (yeah, I’m a bit behind in my inbox…):

Your Brain in Love:
Cupid’s arrows, laced with neurotransmitters, find their marks

I wonder how polyamory affects these transmitter levels?  We’re often, for instance, “in love” with one partner (Yay, New Relationship Energy!), but not with three other partners (whom we probably love very much, but aren’t experiencing that chemical rush with anymore).

What’s your personal experience?  Any opinions as to how these chemicals might behave in a polyamorous person?  Enquiring minds want to know… :^)
