Dating for people in relationships
But society told me I had to be with one person at a time, with the goal of choosing one person forever. After a really great, long-term, successfully monogamous relationship ended, I was suddenly single in my late twenties and enjoying the freedom and the variety. Adam was fun and our chemistry was fantastic and rare, and though we kept it strictly physical, with those boundaries clearly defined throughout, spending time together was becoming the highlight.
I would often fall into a cycle of trying to make that work but eventually letting temptation get the best of me, and failing both parties of the relationship; especially my partner. Eventually, the inevitable conversation came up naturally about what we were, and what we could be.
But a lot of people are challenging the conventional relationship style, and it’s working for them—just like it’s working for me.They also welcome multitudes into their bed for great big orgies.Adam and I keep our lovers separate (more on that later).When I really stop to think about it, I know that there’s very little chance that he’s seeing anyone who is going to be better for him than I am.We’ve removed the ownership that can come with a conventional relationship.
