“Open relationships” are for closed minded people

I get tired of all these losers on dating sites that brag about their “open relationships.” Boy, are they ugly. Inside and out. These types are what we call holier than thou thinking they’re better than you. They think they’re better than they really are and if let’s say you’re interested in experimenting, they snub you off and make you feel like you’re not good enough to be part of their silly perverted games. Besides, an “open relationship“ is not a real relationship. You’re basically fucking other people on the side. Incidentally, why would you even marry someone only to sleep with multiple people on the side? Does that make any sense? Just…why? Call me old school, but who in the right mind does that? It’s stupid.

I also get annoyed by the pressure to be poly, or the assumption that all relationships be open by default. I think it can really hurt people who, at their heart of hearts, just want to be loved by one person but are settling for less in order not to appear needy or prudish.

I'll never forget going to a lame party and the hostess was making a big deal that she and her husband had an open relationship - then I met the husband who was surprised that she'd even said that.

I often wonder if they are still together, lol

if let's say

While calling people into open relationships "losers", "ugly", "holier than thou", "perverted" and "stupid", you suggest you were snubbed when "if let's say" you were interested in experimenting" with open relationships.

Overly broad generalization due to rejection, perhaps?

In my experience, many people who pursue open relationshipa are trying in good faith to sidestep the downsides of monogamy. These arrangements tend to be unstable and have higher costs than benefits, and require tediously excessive discussion of relationship mechanics, but your insults to the "type" miss the mark.

Another way to look at it

Everyone has their own life experiences that dictate what makes them happy. If you're happy hating on what makes other people happy because it doesn't agree with your life experiences. Go ahead, don't worry about the popular opinion

My opinion

From watching and listening to every person I know who’s been involved in this type of lifestyle, it’s almost always not a mutual agreement. In every one of those situations that I know of, one person has been basically coerced into accepting it because they were in love with the person who wanted it, and they’re afraid of losing them. So usually it’s only one person who’s really getting what they want. Oh and also there’s a couple of people I know where the guy pressured his partner into going along with it so she did, and then when she was having sex with other guys he suddenly decided he didn’t want it anymore. In one case the woman met another guy and wound up leaving her husband for him. So maybe on the surface it looks like everyone is having a great time fooling around with other people while supposedly being in a relationship, but when you scratch that surface things aren’t exactly as they seem.
