6. This Guy Didn’t Want To Commit, So He Entered An Open Relationship
One man on Reddit who said that he wasn’t in a place in his life where he could commit to only one person decided that he would instead, be part of a relationship with two other people. The couple he’s with have been together for years, but occasionally, he joins them on dates, or sleeps with them.
According to him, the arrangement suits him just fine, because the couple he’s with are very committed to each other, and they don’t have any expectations about him staying in a relationship with them if he doesn’t want to. The only rule with them is that everyone needs to use protection. He’s even allowed to date whomever he would like, outside of their relationship. This is certainly one way to have you cake and eat it, too.
