As long as all parties involved are okay and the lines of communication stay open I'm okay with it. We have been swingers for going on 10 years and have only had one problem. We swing both together and seperately.

I love the idea of open relationships, though have never been in anything close to an open relationship. I don't know if I could. I feel like my insecurities and jealousies would completely get in the way of my enjoying it, but I think I would definitely consider it.

I've got no problem with them morally, so long as everybody's in agreement as to what's going on and what the ground rules are, etc.

As for me, I'm open to the idea (no pun intended), but I'd have to be very comfortable with the extra parties involved. And if my SO wasn't interested, I wouldn't give it a second thought.

I know it works for some people. It's definitely not for me though. I don't share well. =]

As far as my feelings on the lives of others and their behavior, I do not think it would be possible for me to care less about what they do . . . unless it directly and significantly impacts me.

For myself, no-way no-how, the result would be a complete failure of the relationship.

If both parties are honest and you are comfortable with yourself, its incredible, get to have your cake, and eat it (pie!) too.

No interest in the complexity or the drama - especially when the kids show up!

Being in a sexless marriage, I'm ready to confront my wife with the idea of her letting me take a lover in order to save us from divorce. What's the point of monogamy and only having sex with the same person if that person isn't having sex with you?

I do not care if other choose that option. Neither my hubby nor I could ever go there--we are both too jealous!!!

Would never do it. I am too jealous and I just believe in one partner or none. Not that I have anything against people that do, it's just not me. If someone wants to be with me, it is me ONLY.

I am poly. I like having multiple partners, but I am not into casual sex whether I am single or not.

I really like being in the open relationship I'm in, but it's only sort of open. We have to discuss potential partners with our current partner(s). This feels safe to me, as opposed to not knowing who my partners are with and them not knowing who else I'm with.

I think in the end they don't really work. Someone always gets hurt. It may not be either person in the relationship, but eventually someone gets feelings that they shouldn't have.

I love open relationships... I find that they tend to work better for me.

Tried it once, got too attached then hurt. When I fall, I fall hard so open relationships aren't for me.

I just don't see how it can work without someone getting jealous...
