Boyfriend says we need to have ‘a talk’. He can’t take the whole poly thing. He saw some text messages I exchanged with a friend (who lives 3,000 miles away) of a sexual nature, and now he’s depressed and has realized he can’t do it. What to do? There aren’t a lot of guys I’d willing to be monogamous for, but he’s one of them. However, he says he doesn’t want to force me to do something that I ‘don’t believe in’. Ultimately he’s going to have to choice between dealing with the fact that I’m doing something I don’t want to to make him happy or the fact that I’m with other people. Those are really the only two options here.
Please accept this monster as compensation for dealing with this boring life update.
