In Need Of Advice For Coping With An Open Relationship.Well I am more or less here to get in touch with someone who has been in my shoes,
thought they could handle it and take it with a grain of salt. . . . and be dead wrong.
I have found many articles on how to cope and deal with begining an open relationship for the first time.
They make sense, I understand, I just cant seem to fight off the feelings of jealousy (fear of abondonment, inadequicy, lack of love etc) and its starting to really bother me. Been with my man for almost a year and a half now. And he has chosen to open our relationship so we can see other people. Im in no way bothered....just have insecurities. I want to know if anyone has any tips or suggestions or is just willing to chat. I am all for the new experience I just need to know how and if I can kick what society and distilled in our minds.
Being told all your life and around your life that when 2 people are together thats who they stay with, be with in any way.
And now trying to reverse it and get my mind to figure out how to not be jealous. I know my man loves me, and will come home and be with me after his rounds, I know he cares and wants me. Just having issues with mind over matter.
So if anyone feels like sharing some advice or chatting PLEASE feel free to speak your mind.
Thank you for your time
