Personally, I don't do things to try and "protect" one relationship FROM the other-but I do subscribe to the belief that relationships require care the same way a garden does-so I do my gardening in each relationship and I don't take on more relationships than I have time to garden...
Initially my philosophy was that we should not restrict our hearts from where they may lead us in this journey. That what we have together would not be harmed by outside relationships, but rather enhanced. Now I'm not so sure. My fiancee assures me that he feels more for me because of his outside relationships, and that it reminds him to do the romantic things with me, but I'm still feeling threatened. I think what it boils down to is that I don't want to share the limited amount of time I have with him.
