I have been with my partner for almost 7 years now (we have one 4.5 year old mini-man) and about 1.5 years ago he offered me to open up our relationship. This was great news to me and I was amazed at his generosity and elated that he felt so secure in our relationship to take that step. This is the first time for me to be in an open relationship and I have thought long and hard about what that means to us-arriving at polyamory. It seems to be what is most in tune with who I am and who we are as a couple.
Currently I am still stuck as to how to approach a person I am interested in.........why I feel that way is actually a long story-hoping to find inspiration here to jump over my own shadow.
