So most of you know I’ve been doing research for my new dating site. Part of that research has been getting opinions from people. I’ve gotten opinions from you fine folks but I’ve also gone to dating sites to get opinions.
Interetingly enough I’ve come accross (completely by accident) a few girls who are in open relationships. Either married or just committed. What was even stranger to me is that these women were all good looking, artistic, fit and professional women in their mid twenties. The kind of girls that don’t come off as loud obnoxious party girls or sleezy trashy ho’s but instead the type you’d actually marry. Yet these women (often bisexual) were looking to meet other men and women for romantic times and friendship. Most even said their husband or boyfriend was on the same site.
I support a variety of lifestyles and so will my new site. I’d be lying to you if I told you that open relationships were not a curiousity to me. Especially considering how much I love sex and find so many women so desirable. But the reality is, I wouldn’t want to belong to one. Not because I have some moral high ground. Nope. Actually it all comes down to selfishness with me. I know that my girlfriend would be getting laid a hell of a lot more than I would. Knowing that she’s out getting tucked by some other dude while I sit at home on the computer would drive me crazy. We might as well just call ourselves friend with benefits than “open relationship” or is that the new term for friends with benefits and I’m just not jive to the lingo?
