This has happened to me in the past. I'm not saying it will happen to you though. At the end of my marriage I don't think I would have had a problem opening up my relationship simply because there wasn't one there in the "connected, I am in love sense". This feeling is a warning sign for me personally, but I am mono so it's different. When I hold the proverbial door open for someone, I'm probably going to close it behind them.
