Charles and I never argued, because nothing ever got to the point where it bred resentment. If, and I really mean when, you or your partner starts feeling attracted to someone else, creating a safe space to talk about it takes away much of the threat. The biggest threat to a relationship is you, not other people Happily partnered people don't leave for someone else.A one-night stand might happen in the best of relationships, a brief excitement that is later regretted, usually because they got caught.Acknowledging this inevitability means my boyfriend and I can deal with it from within our relationship instead of pretending we'll only ever have eyes (and maybe hands and lips and everything else) for each other. Trust is more than just monogamy Trust is knowing someone will come back, not believing they will never leave.Small children who regularly see their parents going out and returning are more secure than those who aren't used to being left alone.The truth is that staying monogamous is a challenge.It must be, or there wouldn't be so much infidelity.It came as no surprise to me, either, that I met The One while I was involved with Charles.
Things are more likely to develop into something else than to end. I've always hated mine in the end or, at the very minimum, felt a lack of interest bordering on hate.
As a result, I'm much more at ease with other women than I was before, which is a good thing for every aspect of my life, not just my current relationship. Expectations are everything When I first got involved with Charles, he outlined the small print. With my expectations managed, I didn't run into brick walls trying to make the relationship something it wasn't. Friendship, support, great sex, an emotional connection, but not "love." In my new relationship, the scope of my expectations is wider and deeper, but one thing I know will never happen is living in the same place.
We live in different countries, and neither of us wants to move, so I’ve accepted that.
