I started writing this post and realised I hadn’t really tackled the prompt, I’d gone off into the history of my sex life and relationships and barely mentioned monogamy. So I’ve saved that one for another day 🙂
I’ve always thought of myself as monogamous, although I realise now that it’s more complicated than I thought. My current relationship is monogamous although the subject of having other people join in has come up on more than one occasion, it probably will again. As to whether it goes further than just talking about? Who knows. And if it does happen, whether it’s a one off or becomes a regular thing, with the same person (or people). You see? Complicated.
I like only having one person to think about, to get to know what they like, for them to get to know what I like, to talk about things, to share stuff. It’s a bit of a novelty for me as I’ve managed to get to this stage in my life without ever having what I consider to be a ‘proper’ relationship. One where you actually talk to each other, spend time together. And it’s not just about the sex, we talk about everything, we watch crappy TV, cook for each other, share our books. I’ve never had that before. I came across this on Facebook
This is what I have now.
And I have the added bonus that at last I have found someone who wants to tie me up 🙂
