One thing I figured out while talking with a metamour - there is being happy and OK with a partner dating, and then there is being happy while a partner is dating, and learning to love somebody else, and then you are faced with the reality that this other person may in their lives FOREVER. X amount of time and attention will be paid to this other person on a daily/weekly/monthly basis (or whatever your dating schedule pans out to) over and over again. So although it can be just fine once you get used to it, there can certainly be an adjustment period, especially while you are wrestling with making sure that the new dynamic doesn't mean your partner isn't going to be there for you anymore.
Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have.
