He knew that he was my first boyfriend (I was 18), and he didn't want me to feel like I was missing out on dating.
We talked about nonmonogamy in theory for a long time (two years? In hindsight, I feel like this gave me time to get used to the idea and for us to build a solid foundation.
We've been consistently super happy together for almost a decade!
The other constant is that since becoming "monogamish" (and eventually, "poly"), we've always dated separately.
One of my biggest takeaways from our relationship (and from hearing about other couple's open relationships) is that a successful nonmongamous relationship centers on honest communication and a strong connection between the couple.
Our relationship has evolved over time, but the constant has been how close we are with one another.
I am a bit more of a rule follower, but definitely liberal and nonjudgmental.
He brought up the idea of him being comfortable with me casually dating other people early on in our relationship.
We also feel strongly about treating the people we date with respect and care (and expect to be treated the same).Logistically, we tend to see the other people we're dating (if we're dating other people) about once a week.I have an incredibly busy career (whereas Ben's is more mellow), so he might go on two dates a week (almost always during times when I am busy anyways).If he did fall in love, I don't think it would bother me.We both feel strongly that our relationships with other people don't take away from how we feel about each other.
