I guess it's a mix of both... I can't say that I have expectations for anything. It's a first experience. I suppose I should also say, that though a poly relationship, for the time, I have chosen to stay mono within it. I don't know if that'll change. It may, it may not. Thusly, he's provided me with everything I could hope for in a partner, sans the security mono relationships provide- to which I can't fault him. I decided to try this, so I can only blame myself.
He wouldn't mind if I found another partner to be with. But, for now, I don't see a reason to do so, though working time arrangements is agitating.
