0fe36eb6-800f-40af-9586-2965a4508644I never planned to date a guy in an open relationship. It wasn’t that I was so gung-ho on monogamy, I just figured it wasn’t for me. I’m too jealous, can be needy and didn’t like the idea of being shared. Besides, everyone I knew growing up was monogamous. My parents. My grandparents. Their friends and so on.

Now, however, I find myself dating men in open and/or polyamorous relationships. So I was banging man after man. I even started dating some guys both of whom wanted to be monogamous. When I rejected them it brought them to tears.

I realized then that my sex/dating rampage was actually hurting people, so I needed to cool it and not date at all. Just keep having sex and not getting attached. The thing is the men that I hurt still bothers me and I can’t seem to shake them.

Why is it so hard to have open relationships with other men?

Have you ever had to deal with this?

What are your thoughts?

What advice would you give this person?

    Too often, too many of us equate sex and love or else substitute one for the other. Love and sex are as different as night and day. Naked hugs!
