I am "single" woman dating someone already in a marriage for the last year. K is the V. I have been reading these boards for some time now. I am having some difficulties that I have discussed with my partner "K". I dont know how to change it bc i feel my feelings are being brushed off. You see the three of us do everything together. There is never any alone time. I make sure they get their aline time. We dont go anywhere unless the other half is also there. K rarely wants to sleep with me bc K feels bad that the other half will feel jealous or left out. I have been begging K to do something with me those 2 - 3 days a week I see K. now i am seeing a little resentment and anger coming from k towards me for speaking up. im at a loss. I love this person. I want a real date with k. Its suffocating me.

Cutie you have every right to ask for alone time.

Are you in a true V relationship like I am. My husband and boyfriend have no relationship other than knowing each other through me. Or are you are in a triad?

There is no way Murf would put up with Butch being around for everything.

Do you all live together?

In a V relationship with an average 60/40 split of time. Only due to Murf's and Butch's crappy work schedules.

Thanks for clarifying your situation.

Unfortunately in my opinion unless K is willing to work on things and set some boundaries with his OSO there is nothing you can do.

I personally hate the whole primary secondary relationship model. To me the secondaryends up feeling like a second class citizen. I live by the rule of never make someone a priority who makes you an option. My relationships are separate but equal. Butch's wants do not come above Murf's.

Since K is not going to work to make things better my advice is to do what is right for you. You deserve happiness.

I don't mean to be harsh, but...are you hoping someone will have the magic bullet?

You have talked to them. It sounds as if they've been pretty clear that what you're getting is what you're going to continue to get. So, despite living in a world with 7 billion books along the lines of How to Talk so People Will Listen and How to Get What You Want in Every Situation, and so on, the truth is, we cannot control other people.

They've told you what they're going to continue doing. Your choice now is to keep feeling hurt and frustrated, figure out how to love being the third wheel who never gets alone time, or walk away. Walking away will hurt in the short run, but you'll be happier in the long run.

Think hard about where you want to be ten years from now. Still living like this?
