Slacker and Steve - OPP: Open Relationship (Audio)

September 20, 2016

Today’s OPP is from Emily and she needs your help.Here's what she said:

 

Yi, I have been dating my boyfriend for three years now. He sat me down for a serious conversation and told me that he was getting bored in our relationship. He loves me and doesn't want to end things, but would like to try an open relationship where we date other people and see if that makes things exciting again. Having that trust between us and actually respecting his honesty, I am debating giving it a try. My friends think I am crazy and that there's no point in being with him at this point! I'm thinking this could stir up some feelings of jealousy, to make our relationship better again, and let us both experience something new. -Emily

 

What advice to you have for Emily?
