Open relationship

Recommended Posts

If you met someone who said they were in an

"Open relationship" how would view them? How would you view the lifestyle?

Have you been or in an open relationship?

Does it work?

Why would you view them differently because of their relationship style?

I dont think it would necessarily be wrong to view somebody differently because of their relationship style. Somebody that has only ever been in open relationships might have commitment problems or be a sex maniac, either of which might put a person off

It wouldn't change a thing, really, unless boundaries got stepped on. At that point I'd make sure that they understood that I'm not into sharing, then we'd continue however we were before.

 

Why would it change anything? Their choices apply to their lives only.

 

As the phrase goes, you be you, I'll be me.

I had a friend who was in an open relationship. Thing is she didnt tell her husband. To say it came as a bit of a shock is probably an understatement.

I'd view them with suspicion, the lifestyle also.

Does their partner know that he or she is in an 'open relationship?'

 

I would also view with suspicion until that little detail was cleared up. Ask to meet the partner. Then if they're both in agreement that their's is indeed an open relationship, that's fine if you're happy with it too.

If i met them it wouldn't be an issue.

If i was considering a relationshipwith them it would be an issue - for me

 

(I've known a couple of people in open relationships,Le Chambre visitors etc)

I assume by 'met someone' he's meaning started a relationship with them, as opposed to just bumped into somebody new. Two very differwnt answers otherwise. OP, it would help to clarify.
