Default Interesting reaction

Generally my sister is a very open-minded person. I had told her a few other very close friends that Bear and I had decided to pursue this lifestyle. There was no reaction really. I said that we had a date with Lovely. No comment.

Today I tell her that we are officially dating Lovely. She changed the subject.

Could it be that my oh-so-tolerant sister just doesn't know how to handle this? I wonder if she thinks that I should stay inside the monogamy bubble. I wonder how she would have reacted had I said, "Oh, we've decided to be swingers!" I wonder if that would have been met with more commentary.

I kind of expect that at some point I'll get an earful... about how I shouldn't be pursuing this lifestyle for the sake of my children or something. I don't know.

I just find her reaction bizarre.

Not dating anyone right now.
