This is a good, practical discussion for me to read about.
We've had an open marriage for six years.
I've only been intent on meeting someone for the past two years. I had a lot of soul searching to do and I wanted to understand as much as possible before I moved forward.
For me it's essential that I find a way to make sure I'm not being predatory and that I'm being as transparent as possible.
I've had 2 dates. One has led to a plutonic friendship the other was a complete disaster.
In both instances I was transparent about being in an open marriage. In retrospect I could have done a better job learning about who I was talking to, first.
I really like both women.
My plutonic friend is complimented that I find her attractive but not interested in being secondary.
My dramatic never wants me to bother her again encounter thinks that Iím a perverted womanizer.
Donít want to go there again.
