By well then - United States - Forest Park
Today, my girlfriend randomly confessed to basically having a "phobia" of monogamy. But don't worry, she defensively assured me she's never ever cheated on me, even though I never said she had, so I guess that's okay then. FML

To be fair, it's expected that OP would have asked her about that. It sounds like she anticipated the question of her loyalty, but then made herself look like she actually IS cheating by not waiting to see if he actually was going to ask her about it.

Yes, it's true that she could've just been anticipating his next question and decided to answer it before he asked, however, the whole conversation was weird in itself. Why bring up the fact that you basically have a "phobia" of monogamy if you're in a monogamous relationship and not cheating or planning to cheat? Either she's already cheating or is warning op she may cheat later on and that it's not her fault because it's a "phobia."

It's his girlfriend not his wife. If he is willing to accept a polyamorous relationship than all is well. if he is not, then they go their seperate ways. This comment is legit folks. No need to down vote.

Monogamy (/məˈnɒɡəmi/ mə-NOG-ə-mee) is a form of relationship in which an individual has only one partner during their lifetime or at any one time (serial monogamy), as compared to polygyny, polyandry, or polyamory.

If I wanted an open relationship, I'd just date several people at once and not classify any of them as a relationship, But I wouldn't do that because it's enough hassle dealing with one person. If you want to see other people, don't let it get to boyfriend/girlfriend status.

But this isn't about yours or #8's personal preferences, is it? Open relationships work for a lot of people with their own rules of limitation, so you don't need to be dictating what "should" happen in others' relationships. Besides, the OP doesn't sound too happy about her girlfriend possibly seeing other people, so an open relationship probably isn't his thing anyways.
