Does this sound like something you’d enjoy? Here’s how to get this conversation going:
Mention it in passingThe aim is not to make it obvious in one go, hence you need to casually throw it in there during a light conversation. You want to plant the seed in his head – this will prepare him mentally for when you have the ‘serious talk’ about it.
Have a real life success story as back upIt’s a good idea to bring up a couple or two that have tried this and made a success of it. It’ll show him that relationships aren’t as conventional as they were before, times have changed and so have relationship dynamics.
Hangout with like-minded couplesThis way, you’re exposing him to what could soon be your reality. You want to show him the normalities, the good and the bad of open relationships in order for you two to make a sound decision.
Have the facts on why it worksYou cannot sell something to your partner if you don’t know why it works or why you want to do it. Being in an open relationship should somewhat be better than what you currently have , if it doesn’t then don’t initiate it.
Give him time to process itWhile some men might jump at this opportunity yours might need some time to get his head around the issue. He’ll be shocked at first and if you’ve convinvced him enough he might give it a chance so it’s best you do your research.
