    I'm gay, and I've been dating another guy this year. Things have been going extremely well. We both like each other a lot, and his friends and family love me.

    The Problem: He came out just before we started dating, and he didn't really get a chance to sleep around and get it out of his system before settling down. At first he said that it didn't bother him, but lately it has been eating at him. He even went so far as to say he'd rather break up than cheat and hurt me. He suggested an open relationship, in which he'd remain tied to me but sleep around with others during the week.

    I'm hesitant to jump into this. We both graduate from our universities in May and may part ways after that, so it would potentially be only for a few weeks, and I'm tempted to do it because I really like him and wouldn't mind his company for a while longer. On the other hand, I do get jealous, and I'm not sure it would work out.

    Thoughts?

    Well, it works if you both don't actually 'love' each other. =.=
    If you both don't get emotional about it then it probably works.

    only works if you both want it. and generally only works right at the beginning of relationships

    so i'm inclined to say it probably wont work for you. why cant he just sleep around after he's graduated

    I figured. I don't want it.

    why cant he just sleep around after he's graduated
    Good question. I don't have the answer.
