A few months ago I asked my boyfriend that he if he went to the bar we frequent (they know us by name) with his other girlfriend they keep the PDA down and try and just act like friends. He had no problem with it and we even picked another place were if I am there with him we are just friends. However I am starting to feel kind of bad about putting this type of restriction on him even though he has in no way shown any upset over it. I just want to know if this is normal? I don't like the idea of people thinking he is cheating on me and I imagine that would be most people's first assumption.
I have been to a few places with my different partners and one lover, I think if you are in a open relationship ( as everyone including family know) it would be ok but if there has been a rule put in place to not to go to the same places then it should be respected. x
