Not sure what I am or where I fall...
Hi - I'm new here, but I found this site and thought it would be the perfect place to make friends/find sage advice. I'm in a bit of a pickle. I'm in a plain ol' fashioned hetero marriage - we've been together since I was 15. I'm 28 now. I've been going through some ... changes ... emotionally/sexually/etc that are making me question many of my life choices. Well, mainly my marriage. What really blows is that ... well ... my marriage is mostly fine. We are best friends and are very honest with one another. But - I have met someone else. Someone who really stirs my kettle ... and while nothing has happened with this other person, I kind of want something to. But I don't feel like cheating is really right ... because lying is stupid.
We've talked about some of my recent desires for more sexual experiences, and an open relationship came up. While I've always been understanding of those who have them, I never thought I would ever want one ... until now. So this is all very confusing to me. I'm not sure what to do ... does anyone have any words of encouragement - any advice? I feel so guilty and haven't really done anything wrong .... yet.
