First Post

Well, I was in a seriously committed relationship. We'd talked about bringing others in, but never actually done it. Suddenly, she decided that she wanted to "see other people" but not necessarily in a bad way... She wants to explore while she has her youth, to try different things before deciding when and who with to settle down.

It was a real kick in the nuts. I mean, I was devoted to this girl, and suddenly she wants to remove all commitment. But I'm not a bamboo pole... I can learn to bend instead of break when the wind gets fierce. While we're still seeing each other (and having some very hot encounters) and still care about each other, we're no longer committed and the relationship is officially open. She's talked about bringing people back to our apartment and wondering how I'd deal... I told her, if that happens, I want in as well, at LEAST to watch. I don't necessarily have that clout with her at the moment, but here's to hoping that I do one day soon.

One day, I'd like to settle down and have a family, but today is not that day. If she decides in this whole process that she doesn't want to settle down ever, I'll bow out and move on, parting as good friends. Until that day, I intend to make good use of my new freedom, and more than likely, if we restore any committment, we'll probably maintain an openness by bringing in others.

So here's to a new life: exploring, having fun, and sharing that fun with others!
