I'm a female in my late 20's. I'm sexually fluid so I'm not always attracted to my partner. I want to ask them about having an open relationship. Because when I'm not attracted to males he gets bored and starts being really needy. It's really annoying and I think it'd be for the best if we had a open relationship or be FWB. The only other possibility I see is breaking up.
Each person is different and every relationship is different. Open relationships are fire. Yes you can keep them contained but if you get careless you either get burned or you burn someone else.
I'm in total support of open relationships but you have to keep in mind it's socially taboo right now and you can't expect people to understand or respect it. Feelings are fickle. One day jealousy can sneak in even if you don't think it's possible. Ego is unpredictable.
Attachments are killers to open relationships because we are territorially motivated. Even though it's wrong to say you own someone or they "belong" to you, its really never that way. The more open the relationship the less you have.
If you start arbitrarily making rules for who or when they can see other people the damage sets in. It becomes silly after that.
