Gee my whole life has been about honesty and loyalty and monogamy. These days I find that honesty and loyalty don’t necessarily mean monogamy. You can loyally sleep with a person knowing they are honestly in an open relationship.
I don’t have the patience to maintain a relationship anymore; I don’t have the inclination to give up little parts of myself in order to accommodate a full time partner. I stick to one partner and I will never cheat. Honesty still is the top factor required for any relationship to work but as long as the people involved in an open relationship know that they are in an open relationship then I don’t see the problem with it.
I personally could never be in an open relationship but if you can then I will support you wholeheartedly. I am single but not easy and if you happen to have the one piece of steak worthy of a nibble and have no appetite then I am certainly NOT going to let it go to waste.
