New but not a newbie...
Hello to all from Central Jersey. I was told about this forum from a contact I made on OKcup.. I am not a newbie because I have been living the lifestyle (open marriage) for three years. I have found it somewhat difficult for males to be accepted by females in my situation when attempting to seek out an intimate relationship. I have been to the usual dating sites that I am sure most others on the forum have tried, I have better luck leaving my open marriage off the table when engaging in "cyber conversations" with other married females. I do not reach out to singles due to the high levels of angry responses.....(cheater, pond scum, home wrecker...ect) My wife on the other hand has a much easier time of finding potential dates, though mostly from her work environment. I do not have the type of work environment that would allow me to "test" the waters for potential intimate partners, and I consider it foolish to do at work as well. After reading the definitions page for this site, I realize that I also suffer from a partner who "roadblocks" my ability to meet others, often guilting me for cutting into family time for my own needs...(she sees her "friends" during work hours).......That is what brings me here, to explore and communicate with those who have been in my situation and have found a way to navigate away from the jealously bug that regularly bites my wife and is straining my ability to meet new and interesting people.
