“I want an open relationship with my boyfriend”

I am a 23-year-old college student, trying my best to balance out life. I’ve been with my boyfriend a little over four years, and I love him to death. But lately, I’ve realized I want to have an open relationship. Before I was with him, I was with someone else on/off for almost four years. I would really like to explore other individuals, at least for a few months, before settling down for good.

In no way do I dislike my boyfriend, I just feel like I truly never had the time to explore different options. He, on the other hand, is highly against non-monogamous relationships. What do I do in this situation? Is this just me being selfish?

    Depends. You can explore role play. You can break up with him and explore polyamory. Only you know what will be right for you.

      Thanks. We’re on a break right now, only for a little while. I’m spacing myself from him and will probably explore a little, before getting back with him.

What do you think?
