Hope you can start the week pretending that Monday is going to be the best possible day - fake it to make it -Mondays don't have to be negative!
Have you been in an open relationship? They seem to be on the increase and in all different shapes and sizes! After 10 AM I'm discussing these with Jane Garvey on Woman's Hour at BBC radio 4. They're not my cup of tea but I certainly don't judge others who enjoy polyamory.
In my role as an agony aunt and life coach I suppose I hear from more people who've had bad experiences. Just think about how difficult it is for two people to relate in a traditional couple - their two sets of expectations, needs and desires often clash. So what's it like when three or more sets of these expectations and desires come together?
Yes it's that much more complicated.
TODAY’S TIP: If you're thinking of having an open relationship you need to establish solid ground rules that you both agree and stick to.
You have to flag up things like, e.g. if you're becoming emotionally attached to a third-party. You need that kind of honesty so the whole thing doesn't come crashing down around your heads.
I believe everyone has a right to you have the private life that they think will work for them. Just enter with caution and your eyes wide open!
Happy Monday, Pamx
