Not currently. I have some admirers, though nobody stepping up for the romance.

Spouses should be supportive but your wife may just really suck at being supportive in the way you need. She might be incapable of it - I'm not saying she's a bad person but we all have things we do better than others.
She has an attention deficit and is struggling with depression. I understand why she has difficulty with this sort of thing. In the midst of a rough spot, however, it still feels really shitty.
When speaking of various forms of ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
