We were both always aware of the existence of other lovers, but it was clear that we were each other's favorite.It occurred to us that we could keep the excitement and variety, and still let ourselves fall in love with each other. And since then I’ve gotten a lot of questions about how we make it work and why we would even do that in the first place.I get that it can be hard for a lot of people to understand.But it works for us, and it’s not as unusual as it seems. An open relationship is a form of non-monogamy, which is an umbrella term for any physical or romantic partnership that is not predicated on exclusivity. In this article I’m focusing on what Adam and I are and do: a committed couple that takes lovers.While you don't want to be running into your new prospective boo in your office elevator, you're also probably not looking to start something with someone who is "only" less than five miles away from your apartment in Astoria...over in Bushwick, which may as well be a long-distance relationship as far as I'm concerned.
It has never been easier to make friends than it is right now.
The rise of mobile phones helped change this, connecting people in a new way, but then social networks sprang up and the whole idea of friendship changed again. It’s entirely possible to have hundreds of friends on Facebook.
They may not be friends you know on a personal level and spend time with in the real world on a weekly basis. There are several people I consider friends who I have never met — in fact, I may never meet them — but that doesn’t lessen the connection we have thanks to social networks.. We’re sharing our lives — the ups and downs, the twists and turns — with people we think will care. They will listen to what you have to say, and help you deal with any problems you may be facing.
As with most questions there are multiple angles to approach this quandary from.
Having already looked at the negative impact of social networking sites on society, I thought it only fair to redress the balance. Using the previous article as a loose template it’s clear to see that what some people would conceive as negatives can also be positives.
