Dating while still in a relationship

People have always been astonished when I tell them about my living situation.

I had a husband for 26 years who I lived with and had 4 children with.

He was wonderful but I couldn’t help but feel stifled in our relationship.

Other times, you get hit with a case of FOMO, or fear of missing out, and you take a gander at all the men or women you could be dating instead.

Every now and then, you come across the online dating profile of someone you know, but when that someone you know happens to be someone you’re supposed to be in a relationship with, you can’t help but start questioning the validity of that relationship.

But when those unique dating situations suddenly become your present reality, you still feel like a deer caught in headlights no matter how many books about polyamory or open relationships you may have read.
