Can you go from a swinging relationship back to a more traditional one?
I received a great question via Ask Chantelle:
"Over the past few years, I've enjoyed a few open/swinging type relationships, but I met a girl who just got to me, and to be honest I couldn't bear the thought of being with anyone else. It didn't end up working out too well in the end. I was just wondering if you had some advice for me on this matter? Is it even possible to go back to a more "regular" relationship type after being to open in the past?"
Yes, you can absolutely go back and forth between them. When my hubby and I first got together we'd started playing in that space; we had a 3some which was fun but after that decided that we really just wanted to be together and focus on each other for a while... that turned into 5 years :)
Then when we were ready to do more stuff together, we officially started swinging... at some point we may not do it anymore but right now it's right for us.
So yes, you can go from one to the other and back again, as long as it works for both of you, great! Relationships are fluid, you don't have to stick them in a box with set rules, they are allowed to change, evolve and grow in whatever form that is.
I think when you really fall for someone, there is at least some time in there where you really just want to be with them on their own which is perfectly ok :)
...and that's just what I think :o)
