Dude is coming off as a really selfish person---a girlfriend AND a wife, and now he wants you two to be buddy-buddy when he knows you don't get along well? All kinds of red flags are popping up around this question.

Along those same lines, I think this is one of those situations where if you have to ask, the answer is probably "no".

Yeah, ditto what everyone else said. Sounds like a bad situation, and a bad guy. If they don't have an open relationship, of course you aren't going to get along!

I will respectfully disagree with the pack on this one. I am assuming that your long term boyfriend's wife knows about you and that you and she just don't seem to be able to see eye to eye.
I was in the same situation, myself, with my current guys. BOTH guys loved me but couldn't be in the same room alone without a referee! what it took was me stepping out of the middle and telling them that I loved them both but I wasn't responsible for their relationship...they had to build that for themselves. It was a MAJOR leap of faith and tested all my patience and courage but we went from "I love you but HE drives me nuts" to a wonderful month long living arrangement where they started planning seriously how to make it permanent.
Get him out of the middle and really look to see why he loves this woman. He has the good taste to love you so chances are she is a wonderful person as well. If jealousy is the issue tackle it head on, if it's a personality clash look for the good in her and build on that foundation. Find SOMETHING that you two have in common and use that as a building block.

Now, mind you, if his wife is being cheated on by both of you then get out now and save yourself the heartache. That's a situation I have never seen work and I have seen it end in the ultimate tragedy....

I think if she genuinely doesn't like you it will be a drama festival

I don't understand the question.

Does your boyfriend and his wife have an open polyamorous relationship? Do they have consent to have sex with other people? Or does he want you to be "friends" with her, while she doesn't know you and he have a sexual situation?

Consent is the key. If the three of you are having sex together then of course, you'll have to get along. If he is simply poly without his wife present, but she knows what is happening and if fine with it, then it's different.

I have NO idea if you get along with her. If he's cheating behind her back, I think it is a recipe for disaster. If the three of you have a poly relationship, then all of you will need to decide what relationship you and his wife will be in.

I'd have to know why you don't get along, I guess.

I think it really depends... I feel like if you both care for the guy, then you should be able to find some common ground--even if it's only the fact that you both love him. It's really an open ended question, though.. I guess it really depends on how YOU feel about it. Even if you don't "love" him (don't know what the situation is!) you have to decide if you feel like it's worth it.
I'd sit down and talk with his wife, then decide!

I think it depends on the individual situation. Such as why the wife and gf might not get along? What is the issue? Is it just a difference of personality? A bad first meeting?...there's just too much to consider for a yes or no answer.

No kidding! I do wish people wouldn't make a post that begs the backstory and then disappear.

Guess I forgot about this post....all 3 parties are aware of each other. Oddly enough, us two women have similar birthdays, and looks, so maybe too much similar in personality. Had been in the same click of friends but never hung out just the two of us by choice before him. We attempted to all go out together, 3 somes, etc, but no major chemistry between the ladies. More small talk and tolerance to see if it works for him. I'm attempting being more 3 oriented for him, but feel we're better as couples separately and sharing, of course that means he doesn't get his 2 women together, but I try to explain to him, that its just not as much fun when there is 'so much' in the room. Possibly because I'm just more comfortable with men then women, always have been, and I'm just not fond of her for several reasons, not super important why. I'm just trying to keep everyone comfortable including myself.

....this is the polyamory board.

Have some respect for other peoples choices. If "seeing a married man" is absolutly a bad choice for you, then maybe this isn't the right part of the forums for you.

polyamory=more then one consenting adult in a loving relationship.

pretty ridiculous to me that a bunch of people came into this thread to be like "married man! that'll never work!!!!"

I kinda thought that myself...but you have to realize that most people don't know to look at the forum heading and may not have realized that this was a poly forum.
Dating a married man is still such a bug-a-boo and yet it goes on ALL the time with or without the wife's consent.
I really chuckle at the whole "It'll never work because you don't like her" rationale.
Arch and Sigel did NOT start out as friends. They had a very adversarial relationship and more than once BOTH of them admitted they couldn't stand to be in the same room with each other. Now a days they play games for HOURS together and frequently discuss finances. They laugh and play with each other just like real friends do.
It CAN work out even if you are polar opposites OR just alike.

Err a girlfriend and a wife? Nope, don't put yourself in that uncomfortable spot if you don't like her. That's selfish of him.
