How many of you think that having an open relationship must be really exciting? Well, probably many of you. Mostly those who have never been in one. Sure, an idea of an open relationship might sound interesting, but is it in fact interesting?

Let´s have a look at these truths that will probably turn your life upside down:

  1. First of all, if you are really interested in such kind of relationship, you need to discuss with your partner. And you both have to be up for it. If not, it is just cheating. However, even if you both agree, be careful, the reality can be pretty different from what you are imagining in your head.
  2. Do not justify your decision with using historical context as a proof that you are right. There are tons of things that happened in the past and some of them are not really something you would like to happen again.
  3. You need to talk to your primary partner. About the people you are seeing and the things you are doing with them. Otherwise, it will not work.
  4. In order to make it work, you need to feel compersion. That means, you need to feel happy for your girlfriend when she is out having fun.
  5. Do not do this if you are unhappy with your girlfriend. It will not save your relationship.

Just make sure that you both want the same things. But, do not try this if you are not sure.
