Exploring This Option
I am a 22-year-old female senior in college and my boyfriend is a 24-year-old senior in college. We have a long distance relationship and plan on moving in together as soon as we both graduate in the spring. He and I have been together for two years.
We have had a non-exclusive relationship for some time now. Unfortunately, I don't have the dates for when it started. Even though we are non-exclusive, neither of us have been intimate with very many other people and neither of us have had intercourse with other people.
At this point I think I am joining the forums to start to talk to other people who are polyamorous since there don't seem to be too many around in my social circles. We are also kind of curious on how to move into sparking relationships with other people. We are both kind of shy and have been out of the dating game for more than two years now. While neither of us has expressed any jealousy issues, we are both afraid of hurting the other in pursuing another relationship and we are kind of wondering how to break the ice and make that first step so that we can really get into seeing if this works for us and if it is something that we would like to do for the rest of our lives.
Any advice is appreciated. I will be looking around the forums a bit more in depth now to see if there are topics relevant to the questions I just asked.
