Could "Um, in real life you can have only one steady, if you are that type of person." be a tautological statement meaning "in real life you can have only one steady, if you are the type of person who can have only one steady relationship at a time"?

Of course it's still stupid that Sims 3 doesn't permit more than one at a time, because as in real life, just because some people canhave multiple steady relationships doesn't mean that everyone has to.

Oh! Um, maybe?

"In real life most people only have one steady"? See, that statement wouldn't bother me.

Have I just made myself look stupid? *sigh*

it's possible but it seems unlikely to me that someone would bother to write something so obviously tautological. My reading would be the slightly less friendly you can only have one steady if you are the kind of person who goes steady with anyone. So the old if you are in more than one relationship the aren't really serious argument. Though it may well be coming from a lack of knowledge about poly than any real judgement ...
