Gay Open Relationships

Gay Open Relationships

My partner and I are have only had 8+ months of connection but it was spot on from our second meeting.  At 4 months we chose to move in together with some of my friends saying thats way to early.  It was my friends that were scaring me not my partner.  He was very open about what he wanted in a long term relationship with it being open.  This is a road I've never travel before and had to really think about "is this the path I want to take for me".  We have had 5 experiences with an additional man in the bedroom and can say it didn't hurt our rel

Buying A hristmas Gift For Your Mistress

Buying A hristmas Gift For Your Mistress

In the spirit of the holiday everyone is out buying presents. Presents for family, friends, co-workers and even mistresses. If you’re having an affair, does it make it worse if you get your mistress a holiday gift? At what point does it go from being an affair to being a full blown relationship?

Ladies, Should You Ask For It?

Quick - what was the first thing that came to your mind when you read the title of this post? What about "Gentleman, should you ask for it?" Would this change your response?

5 Steps to a Better Relationship-- The Gift of Love

Lila here~ I started an experiment a few months ago, and have gathered enough research that I can confidently share it with you now, just in time for Festivus, Christmas, or New Years; whichever you celebrate.      It started with a premise that nobody wants to be miserable.  Even people that act miserable on a regular basis would rather not feel miserable.  But they’re in pain, so they lash out.  The pain they feel is the result of feeling unloved, unlovable or unworthy in some way.

Eperience Everything Sexual Before it's Too Late

"I've been with my boyfriend for nearly 2 years. He is my first boyfriend and I never thought that it would last long. things went really fast and we were in a steady relationship all of a sudden. What I feel for him is love and I think that he could be the one, I just think I met him too early. I want to meet other people and see what the world has to offer me before I think about getting married. I'm 21 years old I thought in this time in my life I would have been going out and flirting with boys, all I do now is whine about how insensitive he can be.

HI!!

HI!!

I'm excited to have a blog here- I'm still getting used to the site but I'm currently a newly married stay at home mom, so I think I'll have plenty of time/experiences to write about on here. I have a twitter account if anyone is interested, @OhJenkies. Looking forward to playing in the YourTango neighborhood :)

Five Steps for Navigating Arguments

Five Steps for Navigating Arguments

Lila here~ One of the dynamics that plays out with long term relationships is that you get into arguments.  And not just any kind of arguments, but the kind that push every last button you have.  The fight may begin innocently enough, but it escalates to the point where you feel totally unsafe around your partner.

More Drama Games

More Drama Games

  Pinkee here again~ Last week I was talking about some games people play on what I call The Triangle, where all drama occurs.  This week is a continuation of that.  Below is a list of more “games” that may sound familiar and how to avoid them: 1.  I am Your Master.  In this game, you are the Victim and she is the Villain.  If you want to do something, such as go out with the guys, you have to ask her permission, as if you’re a child.  And, if you don’t, or even if you do and she says yes but doesn’t m
