I've seen a lot of dating profiles that have open relationship with so and so. What are you all opinion on open relationships are there benefits to them? Do you like the idea of open relationships? (I've noticed on a lot of these profiles the person they have an open relationship with are older man at least 10 years older than them.)
I'm not a fan. I want a committed relationship with one person. I don't see the point in being with someone if they still want to date and sleep with others. That's not my definition of romance or love.
Well they have a high failure rate (though because people don't generally talk about them its admittedly hard to get accurate data on them) and the more partners a woman has the more likely she is to divorce/cheat etc (in fact cheating is actually really common in open relationships because its open ie their is so much grey area which is why so many couples have huge lists of rules to abide by (which again often are broken)). So not a fan and would never be with a woman who was in one or wanted one.
I get the whole concept, but its just not my cup of tea. If i'm with someone, I don't want them to sleep with anyone else. And I don't want to do that either. I get too attached and I will probably fall apart at the thought of them touching and being intimate with someone new.
