Only Option.

There has only ever been one guy I've seriously cared about. We tried being together but it just didn't work. We fought constantly and yet spent every day together. We came to rely on each other and wouldn't consider breaking up as an option. But we just rubbed each other up the wrong way (no pun intended). We made each other miserable, and misery breeds misery. So somehow we fell into seeing other people. It calmed us down alot (both our tempers were demonic!) and we began to enjoy each others company again. Now, we both go out and experiment with other people but have our own relationship comfortable and sexual. I'll admit we both have tantrums of jealousy from time to time, but nothing like before. To be honest I think we've run our course. It's time to end it. At least this way we can still be friends and not hate each other.

Well, a bad relationship is a bad relationship...but a lot of us are trained to believe it should work. Believe me, it's a waste of time...it doesn't! You're on the right track by ending it, at last.

This is an option that we are trying as well, with some degree of success - though it's not a home run. Sounds like the same for you. A friend once said that it's a bit like having a baby to save the marriage. It adds a la<x>yer of complexity to an already complex situation, but also forces cooperation and mindfulness.

You don't have to end it. It is possible to have a loving relationship where both members see other people as well.

I am so glad you found a way to make it work!
