    Default Open Relationships

    Is there a section, I'm just chucking this in here out of laziness?

    So a while ago I met a couple. They are older than me, and very good friends of a very good friend. Fascinating, clever, charming people. I became FB friends with them and there has recently been talk of polyamory, (I think this is the polite new word for swinging). I have always had a blanket rule against marrieds. I have a friend with benefits, and no time for a relationship what with the work and the study and the children. But it leads me to wonder, is this a common experience of single mums? Do you'll get the nudge nudge from couples too, or do I just live in that kind of hip inner city neighbourhood where it is rife?

    That sounds less like swingers and more like serial killers...

    Never in real life. A couple of times when I ventured into the world of internet dating *shudders*

    Tried it, concluded even numbers work better than odd ones, and now my bed is too overcrowded with babies to have room for that. Haing spent the who,e of my 20s in a monogamous relationship and most of my 30s single, pregnant, breastfeeding or exhausted, I do wonder if I will hit my 40s and suddenly see the appeal of it. I'm not sure I would happily commit to one person easily.

    The Internet is absolutely full of married men being badly behaved, or at least toying with the idea. Another reason to be wary of commitment!
