hehe, OK cool.


So how does it work out in the end when each partner dates separately? I can feel myself detaching some from the primary relationship as she and I have started down that path.
It varies. Sometimes it brings the couple closer. One needs to watch out for NRE, new relationship energy. We can get so wrapped up in a new crush we can neglect our primary. We need to schedule romantic dates/quality time with the primary to keep that relationship strong.

After NRE fades, (3-18 mos usually) things get more balanced.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
