Why You Should Try An Open Relationship to Reignite Your Spark
And how to do it without jeopardizing your relationship
I very rarely share stories that are too personal about me. But recently, a fellow writer friend of mine joked that despite knowing me for months, I’m still a mystery to her because my writing often tends to be about other people.
It’s an interesting question to ponder, “How much should I share about myself?” I’m not a “spiller” by nature. I tend to stay away from drama so although my life is always full of interesting changes, I don’t often have things to “spill.”
I like to stay open but I much prefer to listen to other people’s stories. But when I thought about how I feel about this community (that’s you - my readers!) - I can picture actual faces, and I feel like this is a safe, non-judgmental space to share more of myself.
So, here’s my personal story about my foray into open relationships. Turns out, everything I thought about it was wrong - including my main fear that it would jeopardize my primary relationship. It ended up creating a lot of adventure, play, and trust and turned out to be an extremely bonding experience.
