Ambiamorous is a term that refers to an individual who is open to both monogamous and non-monogamous relationships. People who identify as ambiamorous may find themselves comfortable with the idea of being in either type of relationship and do not necessarily lean towards one or the other. Ambiamorous individuals may also identify as polyamorous or monogamous at different points in their lives, depending on their current circumstances and desires.
