We went out for dinner and had a really good talk. We have a lot of work to do, but I think this is going to turn out for the best. I just have to be aware and respect my partner's slower process. I live in my world of wanting to put my foot to the gas and well--he's just not there. So I'll have to slow down and focus on having friendships with people rather than anything extra for the time being.
His fear is that he won't be able to have as much sex as me and he doesn't know how to meet other people. I'm happy to help him meet and find someone for him, but he wants us to focus on us for a little bit, and that's something I'm willing to do.
I listened to an old Polyamory weekly podcast about building successful relationships and realized the mistakes I've made and want to work towards making things better.
