Opening up our relationship ~ Partner has long term (former- now reconnected) Poly partners, and I have none. I am dealing with a internal power struggle around being over emotionally invested, and am wanting to start dating others to "balance the scale", versus out of genuine need/interest.

  1. This is very common. Many couples will even make rules about how their partner can only date people if they themselves are also dating someone. It’s not a great mindset.

  2. Your feelings are normal and totally valid. My wife and I have been working on this as she finds herself really doing well with a new and very healthy relationship while my own initial hope at a partner has not worked out. Now I'm left trying to figure out how to fill the holes I feel like my wife leaves in time and attention to me without just patching it up again.
