it is not so rushed as it may seem. it's been a part of our dialogue since the beginning, it's just that it is starting to become a reality now. i am not trying to just dive into having sex with a bunch of folks, nor is my partner. actually quite the contrary, neither of us is particularly interested in anybody or motivated to find someone. it's just that my partner identifies as polyamorous and wants to open us up to the possibility of having other relationships should we find people we are interested in.
i did not mean to suggest these relationships needed to happen immediately or that they were solely sexual in nature, just that we are talking about having this as a possibility and not being defined/bordered by a monogamous relationship.
does that clarify things a bit?
