I have been dating my non-nesting partner for two years. I have recently come into realization that we never had an opportunity to talk about our financial goals and retirement plans. I am scared about bringing this up with my partner, especially since we each have our respective nesting spouses and do not share finances with each other. How can I start this discussion with my partner?
My girlfriend sometimes shares positive polyamory memes and visits poly-friendly platforms, even though she has consistently reassured me that we are in an exclusive relationship. I just don’t feel reassured, especially as it pertains to her bisexuality. Is she closeted about her polyamorous identity?
My husband was very much against opening up our marriage two years ago, but I finally convinced him when I started dating my coworker. My husband even found a girlfriend for himself a year ago. Last month, my boyfriend broke up with me and I’m no longer into the idea of the open marriage. What should I do?
When my current girlfriend and I took a break a couple years ago, I slept with new partners. After we got back together, we never talked about who we slept with. Recently, I realized we never had that conversation about our sex life during the break when she incorrectly guessed the number of people I’ve slept with during a game. Should I tell her that I slept with other people during our break couple years ago?
My best friend recently divorced his husband and moved across the country to pursue a new job and life. I was very close with both my best friend and his husband before the separation/divorce, and was even the maid of honor at their wedding. Is it okay for me to contact my best friend’s ex husband and offer my condolences & support?
My partner and I have been dating for a few years, non-monogamous from the start. She connected with a stable secondary partner of two months recently, but this is the first time any of us had a stable connection outside of ours. We disagree on who we should spend the holidays with. Am I being too selfish?
My boyfriend was invited to a weekend couple’s getaway trip with some of his old friends from his frat days. I declined because I am paranoid about the COVID transmission risks. I feel so uncomfortable with the number of people who’ll be at this event for the entire weekend. Should have I asked him not to go?
I feel really scared that I’ll be tempted to cheat on my fiancee in the future. I hate that I might not be able to resist cheating in the future. How can I train myself to avoid this so that I can be the rock solid monogamous partner my fiancee deserves?
I communicated with my current boyfriend early on that I will not be in a romantic relationship with someone who isn’t out to everyone in his life, and thus cannot properly do poly relationships. Over a miscommunication, I found out he wasn’t as out as he said he was. Am I making too much out of this disconnect?
I feel more strongly connected with my new partner – romantically, emotionally, and sexually. So when my wife asked me if I feel more for my partner, I honestly told her that I did. Am I wrong here? Am I wrong for liking one partner more than another?
