The reason I ask is because my marriage is "semi-open", in lack of a better word. . What is the difference between 1) what I'm describing above, 2) an girl on the front of Matthew Sweet's "Girlfriend" CD looks like she feels. Sometimes I sit and ponder how monogamy is a social construct just like the rest I sought out to find the difference between an open relationship and your preferences for dating – monogamous, non-monogamous, open. 6 days ago Here's everything you need to know, including the difference between open relationships and polyamorous dating.
Oops, actually the one female did overlap with a man, but it seemed so different it didn't compute as anything like cheating.
Anyways, since I became poly-amorous, I have had 5 partners, 3 of whom I am still seeing. Two were dismissed on the basis of "no books in his house" and "rude to Bengali waiter" among other factors. My tendency towards male partners who are my age or older has held steady, but I am finding a good deal of variety even within this field.
There is also a very likely other, who would make for a current total of 4. Much less than I have experienced in some of my monogamous relationships, likely because everyone is self-aware about having to address the possibility, and the lack of resentment or feeling of being duped that would happen with cheating on contract.

Also, since all of us are interested in having more than one relationship, it is in clear conflict with self-interest to stomp on that desire in other. However, I must admit that this is a little bit "iffy" with my newest partner, because it is almost like I am informing or reminding him that it is in his self-interest too. Every one of my relationships exists for reasons other than sex.
In simplest terms, one exists for shared devotion to permaculture and community activism, another exists due to desire for romance and shared devotion to issues concerning social justice, and the third exists for recreational companionship and shared sense of humor.
The Permaculture Manager makes me feel intermittently like a caramel-filled chocolate bar draped on top of a lightbulb or a little buddy. The DeadPan-Neurotic Cowboy makes me feel relatively calm and centered, yet also frequently made to laugh.
If my 4th relationship with the MuseumMan comes into being, it will be somewhat adjunct to my relationship with the Peacemaker, but may also fulfill some recreational companionship needs. Also, bottom-line being that I simply can not and do not have sexual relationships with men with whom I can not also share interesting conversation. Of course, since it is rare for me to encounter a man my age or older who is capable of intelligent conversation, but in possession of fewer funds than me, it is rarely the case that I am the one who is picking up the bill at dinner, but a lot of that has to do with these oh-so-very-busy men not wanting to be inconvenienced, as opposed to paying P.
There is no doubt that P.
I currently blame it on my short ring finger, otherwise I am sure I would be contently and lucratively settled in a sex-dead marriage with one of SClasse's SanJoseTechGuy friends, since I am capable of rational thought in alignment with self-interest.

Neither of us are religious so it'd be secular and not in a church. Any who, girls talk to him a lottt, not wording it a certain way to make him sound better, they talk to him, they're really assertive and don't respect boundaries.
I mean I kind of expect it because he's such a great guy. But he likes mostly Puerto Rican girls, or hispanic girls, girls from other countries at his school.

I get jealous cause I feel like they're more interesting just cause they're from another country and not only that, they're freakishly beautiful. I'm really beautiful and it's like comparing apples to oranges. There's no such thing as 'the most beautiful person in the world'. Everybody's different and we're all beautiful in our own way. I mean, I do think that green eyes are much more beautiful than brown, which I have. Any way, because neither of us had dated too many people before our relationship, I proposed the idea of having an open relationship, for a specified interim, with ground rules.
I want us to have these experiences and get it out of our systems now rather than later. He said he'd feel too bad, he wants it to be just me and him forever, he doesn't want anyone else, it isn't worth it. Part of the ground rules were 'no freakishly beautiful people, or people that are relationship material.
