We went out on a date the other night with a couple. Now, we knew going in that this was not going anywhere. My St/Vk and the husband had clarified that before hand through multiple text messages. They were looking for a pure swinging sexual friendship and wanted a bisexual woman. Nothing more. Cool. We were very clear going in and remained that way.

So, I am crushin.

Just a tiny little crush, but it feels like a big deal since it has been a while since I was crushed on someone like this. I seriously doubt that anything will come of this crush. But the energy that it moves in me is light, fun and silly. I am loving it!

The Great State of In Between

As unique as a finger print, so are the types of relationships two people create together. We are finding that no “defined group” captures what we want, what we are looking for in a relationship with others, outside of our open marriage. Somehow we have landed in the state of being in between. Not quite in the swinger world and not quite in the polyamorous universe. Very perplexing. It’s curious to me how the two styles of life do not jive well together.

No Fly Zone

<p>There is a constant flow of communication when you are entering into an open marriage/relationship. It is intense at first and can become tense throughout the time you are actively engaging in relationships with others. One of the main dynamics that needs to be established is your &#8220;no fly zone&#8221; What are your boundaries and can your partner support you in these limits?</p>

<p>As we move through our open marriage adventure, my husband and I have noticed there&#8217;ve been times where we&#8217;ve been way out of balance. Both individually and as a couple.</p>
<p>Whether it is NRE (new relationship energy), an overload of responsibilities, or a stack of reports and paperwork waiting~ There are a plethera of opportunities for imbalance to occur in an open, non-monogamous relationship.</p>
<p>At times I have felt very emotionally and responsibility lopsided when we/I are out of balance.</p>

Expectation Limbo~ how low can you go?

My mother called me last night. Another glitch in her house selling/buying fiasco. She was very upset and the topic of expectations came up.

Expectations. Those nasty little things that have the potential to set us up for failure, heart-break and disappointment.

Co-Rippiling~~~~~~~~~

Source Website: Alphasiren's Blog

This article / blog post was discovered through our Commons project.

One of the beautiful aspects of being in an open marriage is the ability to increase your intimate energy with others. To live, laugh, love and be close. To expand your relationship to include people on a very deep level.

(Fyi~in no way does this take away from my St/Vk and our relationship. In fact even the conflicts we have experienced have brought us closer and stronger in the end.)

Co-Rippilling is like co-creating but more fluid. It lends a certain energy to your relationship which increases your happiness and over all well being.

A few years ago when my St/Vk and I started to date other couples, we had our first encounter with a potential relationship couple. We talked about being closest and best friends. We texted or emailed daily and saw each other frequently for a few months.

Assumption Clouds

When you move from a traditional, monogamous relationship model into an open relationship, things can become cloudy fast. There are a variety of things you can be and, within that category, there are certain degrees of what you do or don’t like or how you define yourself.
