What happens if Bounty expires after Seven Days and you have not selected an answer ?

I had asked a question earlier, got one answer which was not satisfactory. It has one upvote

So I started a bounty and have not got any new answers yet.

This is the question here.

SO- bounty says that

If there is no answer meeting the above criteria, and you as the question owner have not opted to accept an answer, you forfeit your right to ever accept an answer to your question.

So if I do not accept this answer(which was posted before I started the bounty), do I lose the right to accept answers for any of my past/future questions ?

No, you're just not able to accept answers for this specific question in the future.
