Maybe that's what he meant, but actually I didn't say that either, I never used the word swinging before my last post. Some other people did though. Maybe I shouldn't get so caught up on specific words, but I just feel like there are way too many people who use the term swinging to replace the term open relationship. To me they are different things and I don't like being put in a category that I didn't put myself in. Swinging is exactly what I am not
doing since for many people it means restricting emotions to protect the original couple and that's not how I roll.
