PostSubject: Open Relationships   Wed Jun 05, 2013 11:34 am

How do you guys feel about them?
Personally, I never gave a shit who my girlfriends slept with or how many as long as she's responsible about it. You know: condoms, only people both of us trust, tells me first (and that's tell not ask, if I don't know/like the guy I'll deny it), all other manners of birth/STD prevention. That kind of thing. I never found it as cheating because it's merely physical and casual to me. If I find that she's been spending A LOT of time with someone else over me, in and out of the sack, then I'm stepping in. Though I understand the sentiment of cheating by sex.

Thoughts?

Yeah I felt like that once upon a time, but then I started liking a guy a lot and I felt jealous just thinking about it.

I can understand that. I felt like that at one point, but then the fact that she still came back to me made me feel better.

My thing is that, I know how people can get bored of the same thing and so sometimes they want to try something/one different. So to circumvent that, I just allow an open relationship.

Well, I am currently in one, but it's because of the long-distance thing.

I honestly don't think intelligent people would make each other not fuck other people if they couldn't fuck each other.

I used to be staunchly opposed to open relationships but eventually I realized this was because of my own insecurities. Although open relationships aren't for everyone, they can work if you have really good communication and trust. After all, it's just sex... A relationship shouldn't be based upon sex. If it is, it will usually fail -- sex eventually becomes a repetitive task and however much you still enjoy it with that one person, over and over and over again, there will always be that next "better thing."

I think that's one reason MOST people choose to be in a committed relationship. They are afraid if they choose to fuck other people, their partner might find someone better and move on. The other reason is selfishness -- they don't want to share that "special something" with anyone else. While I can see the appeal in exclusivity, and I'd probably choose to be in a committed and closed relationship under the right circumstances, there is definite pragmatic value in being able to mess around with other people.

Yeah, that's true.

That one didn't cross my mind, since it doesn't really apply to me.

Yeah. It can fuck up shit though.
It's not as common around here as I thought it would, but it still happens to a lot of couples.

Im a bit borderline myself, but I have trust issues with people. So I couldnt successfully be in an open relationship myself.

Don't you think that's a problem, in itself?

I can relate, since I've had my own security issues in the past.

Relationships are built on trust, however.

It's good you realize you have problems so you can work on them and eventually overcome all of it.

I like to think I've gotten over most of mine. At least, I think that's the case =P

Im sure I can work on my trust issues, its just going to take a lot of work, both on my end and for whoever wants to deal with any of my dumb bull.

But the fact of the matter is, I dont see myself in an open relationship at all. Even if I did work on my issues, Id be more of a closed relationship kind of person.

That makes sense.

Like I said, I can really do either/or, so I see the appeal in both.

Awe shiet. You got me and my boyfriend down in that profiling. I mean I would be terrible jealous, and maybe a little angry at first.
Eventually though I would just say "Yeah that's not so bad."
I also remember, nobody is going to make him cum from sex for the first time again. Ah, memories.
