Out of curiosity, What is everyone's feelings on open relationships?  My boyfriend and I have been together for 4 years, We entered into an open relationship a year ago and I am loving it.  I am just curious about how the rest of the world sees people in open relationships

I think that if its what both people want, you respect each other's boundaries and be completely honest. than there's nothing wrong with it at all.

its not something I would feel comfortable with in my relationship, but if both partners are okay with it, it's all your decision. I hate dishonesty, and think cheating is wrong, but yours is actually a very honest approach. It goes without saying that everyone needs to protect themselves from STDs whenever you have multiple partners.

It is not for me. I would never feel comfortable sharing my man with other women. I think it is so important to have trust, respect and commitment. But I try not to ever judge anyone. As long as people are happy and not hurting each other. Really Great Post. Happy Weekend !!!

It's not for me (right now), but it's really nobody elses business what goes on between two consenting adults and IMO, it's better than cheating, at least there's honesty.

I mean, we never know, right? Until we're put in that situation, but I'd find it hard not to feel guilty. I think polyamoury can work better because multiple people share the same relationship, rather than seeing partners outside of the relationship, but again, how would I know?

You do you!

I don't see myself in a open relationship but as long as it work for both of you, it doesn't matter how other people feel about it.

This is not for me. My ex wanted to have an open relationship and he pushed me into it because we lived an hour away from each other and obviously he needed to fulfil his needs. I was so in love or what I thought was love that I said yes because I didn't want to lose him. I snapped out of it the next day and broke up with him because I knew that if he really loved me I would be enough for him.
Honestly in my opinion if you can't commit to one person in a long-term relationship you really shouldn't be in a serious relationship because sooner or later someone is going to get hurt. I know that your intentions are to be open and honest but eventually one day somebody will want more like marriage or children so it may not work out later.
But if it's just multiple casual relationships then I can see that working because not everyone wants to be committed. I mean when I was in college I was seeing three different guys at once but none of them were serious relationships they were just casual because I just wanted to have fun and discover who I was.
This is just how I feel but honestly nobodys opinion matters as long as you are happy and true to yourself.

I wouldn't be cool with it (paranoia and what am I not giving my husband that someone else is?), and my husband would NOT be okay with it.

He'd love a threesome with another woman and me, but that's a one time thing, with a stranger and no strings attached. Haven't caved in yet after 9 years lol.

It can work for some people though.

I think a lot of guys have that fantasy! But I always wonder...if it actually happened if they'd be jealous. They want it to be all about them, but what if you were really into the other woman.

I always think of the 'what if' episode of friends were Ross stays with his wife and never finds out she's gay and she agrees to a threesome and he ends up kicked out of bed, haha.

It's not for me but if everyone involved consents and is totally open and honest, go for it! If I had polyamorus friends, I'd think nothing of it because it's not my business. It doesn't change my opinion of anyone or change who they are inside. I'd just say be careful about protection and regular STD testing, since multiple partners are involved.

if that's what you both want then it's ok. Personally I am waaay too monogamous for that. I can't even understand the dating world as it is now when being exclusive needs to be discussed. I have never dated more than one guy at once I just couldn't do it for my own sake. I am a one man's woman :)
With that being said, if things work well for you and your boyfriend being in an open relationship, good for both of you :)
