New Poly Member~Seeking Advice
I've been checking in off and on with the forums here for the past few months and finally decided it was time to join and reach out!
Alright here we go...
I'm a 25 year old bisexual female that has been in a committed relationship with my bf "K" for most of the past 8 years. He is bisexual and we have had a fairly comfortable open relationship in which we accepted each others desires, and allowed same sex partners for the past several years. I have made a few wonderful friends from this acceptance, but he has always been somewhat hesitant to branch out again.
Now we are exploring a new field all together with our mutual live in bisexual bf "D". He moved in first as a roommate on a close friendship level, but "K" has always had a bit of an attraction to "D", and their relationship began to develop outside of friendship. "K" encouraged my friendship with "D" to help smooth out the "newness", and over the Summer we became close friends. Our feelings for one another grew, and we all decided to try a poly approach with the three of us.
However now "K" is struggling with my relationship with "D" and though "D" and I both are being supportive and open with him he is having a lot of difficulty with the situation. I am somewhat at a loss for what to do to ease his worries and make sure he comfortable with our new relationship. I sincerely hope to find open and helpful guidance and support from the Poly forum community.
Thanks for reading everyone and goodness I apologize for the length!
