Well put. I think I am starting to see why so many people have a hard time with what I am saying. Alright maybe I should rephrase my question. How common is it for two single
people to start
a relationship as an open
Although I'm not single, I remember this being a problem I struggled with when I was. Join an existing relationship, or start a closed one and open it later. I've tried both, but never started off as two singles in an open relationship. Does anyone do that? Would that make me a swinger if I did?
