  • New to Open Marriage—any tips?

    After a serious illness and recovery, my hubs and I decided I could do some cyber dating. It’s been great and now I have an awesome boyfriend as well as a fantastic husband.

    One of my hub’s boundaries though, is that he doesn’t want to hear details. I’m an effusive person and after almost 25 years together, I’m used to telling him everything about my life. I’m trying to balance respecting that boundary with a feeling like I’m hiding something, even though I’m not.

    Any advice from open or poly folks?
