Open relationships work for some people. It takes a strong, confident, and unbothered type of person to share their partners. I personally wouldn’t be able to do it, and I’m going to share my opinion. But open relationships seem to be successful for some guys. I know a few couples who actively engage in swinger parties. Two couples I know also have “boy toys,” who they actively engage with sexually together and separately. In my mind, that’s a disaster waiting to happen.
I take relationships very seriously, and my views on them may be different from yours. I feel like when you bring other people in, somebody is bound to get hurt. Feelings will always transpire between two parties. It doesn’t matter about no damn rules or lines for all parties not to cross. Somebody will want something that wasn’t apart of the agreement.
I think in my opinion, people who have successful open relationships are usually guys who love sex. I mean both partners have to be sexually liberated equally. They both have to have an open mind about sex and knowing how to separate their emotions from it.
I don’t know how to separate my emotions because I find myself emotionally connected to every relationship and partner. But if I was not an emotional connection type of person I think I’d probably be open to the idea of it.
Open relationships seem fun from a distance, and I wouldn’t mind being the third wheel. But I would have to be outside looking in, and not inviting somebody in my personal relationship. I wouldn’t mind hooking up with couples. I think I would be open to being the guy playing with the couples — only if there’s a respect level there! I’m not trying to take anybody’s man and deal with all of that drama. But if I could be their fun third wheel and I’m single cool. I’m all game. But sharing my relationship not happening. Not mine issa no!!!
