Emotional entanglements

I wonder how many people who have had long term swinging or polyamorous relationships have developed emotional attachments to their lover. I know polyamory and swinging are different. I fell into that trap and it has been extremely difficult. My love for my wife has not diminished in any capacity. In fact, her acceptance of the situation and helping me deal with it have made me love her even more. But trying to deal with the pressures of two relationships has been incredibly stressful because I find that I have to make so many either/or choices. I know that I should never have let it happen in the first place but it did.

I agree with you both. Recently I ended a "friends with benefits" relationship of 4 years. Towards the end, we both were growing emotionally closer and put a tremendous strain on the sex.

However, the plus was that sex was soooo much better. Now how does one go to regular sex after that? I'm sure I"ll work it out somehow...
