The Issue With My Flirting

FlirtingI was speaking to my friend the other day and he told me that when it comes to my lifestyle, he could see that I was ready to be in a relationship, BUT he also understood that I really liked my single life and the freedom it gave me to flirt with others as I choose.

Are Open Relationships Healthy?

open relationshipsI met a person recently who is in an open relationship.  He has been with his boyfriend for over three years and when I was first introduced, we hit it off very well.  Now I’m not an advocate of open relationships but, I also try not to judge.  Anyway, I’ve had the opportunity to sit down and speak with one of these partners about their views on life and love and why they chose to change their once monogamous relationship on end.  Many people I’m sure right now will read this opening think the couple is crazy because they believe it’s cheating and they aren’t happy.  If that’s true, no one will know but the couple themselves, but the following is my best way to paraphrase what he spoke about, during our conversations.
