Cake, eating it…

  Today, I'm in an open marriage and had to admit to myself that I caught feels for my "friend with benefits" who was only interested in the "benefits" part and I had to break it off. I already miss the sex. FML

Tobias:
You know, Lindsay, as a therapist, I have advised... a number of couples to explore an open relationship where the couple remains emotionally committed but free to explore extramarital encounters.

Lindsay:
Well, did it work for those people?

Tobias:
No, it never does. I mean, these people somehow delude themselves into thinking it might, but... but it might work for us.

Sounds like he had his cake and ate it too.

And then got sick of the flavor.

FYL op. And tbh, maybe you should have broken things off when you realized you were developing feelings. You need to be responsible if you want these types of arrangements to work.

I don't think he got sick of the flavor, but he didn't want to tell the cake she'd be the only cake he'd ever eat forever.

Disconnecting sex from feelings is not easy for most people to pull off.

🤦‍♂️Umm ok like I've said on here before statistically speaking open marriages are a horrible idea.95% will fail they will end in divorce(if you're lucky), prison or death but most likely statistically speaking you'll end up dead and your husband or lover will be in prison. Get your head out of your ass and grow up open relationship's rarely ever work in the long term. I can guarantee with about 95% accuracy it will eventually end very badly.
