Disppointed and a bit confused
Well the last time I posted was to introduce myself and share a bit of my story and situation. Unfortunately, my hopes of developing a poly relationship and opening my marriage have pretty much fallen flat.

The lady that I thought was poly, has re-evaluated her feelings and is really a serial monogamous individual, and my wife has turned cold at the idea and our relationship in general.

So I've been wrestling with the strong conclusion that I will need to end this marriage and restart my romantic and social life at 47.

It never easy, to resolve to leave a familiar situation even though you are not getting what you need emotionally from it. I have fears and doubts that I will find what I'm looking for, but I know I'm not going to find it in a marriage which lacks intimacy.

So here's to a new year, and new life.

Have you and your wife tried counseling yet? Is she adamantly opposed to opening things up, or even talking about it?
