In order not to endanger her partnership, she embarked on a different relationship model.
USA – A young woman had to realize that three jobs and a fun partnership cannot necessarily be combined. But instead of ending the relationship or cutting back on her job, she had another idea.
Working from morning to night, then doing the household and other urgent matters – for many couples it is not easy to reconcile relationships and everyday life.
An American with the internet name Chanel Bee (28) spoke on the podcast “Monogamish” about how she made things hot up between her and her boyfriend again.
Both have been together for nine years. But there were moments when there was a powerful crisis.
54-year-old is no longer in the mood for older men: her youngest date was 26!
Bee had to manage three jobs in the meantime: “It’s hard to be sexy after you’ve worked all day and you come home and you clean and cook dinner, do the laundry, all those things.”
Because she didn’t want to jeopardize her work or her partnership, the 28-year-old decided to try something new with her boyfriend.
At first the idea came up of entering into a “triad”, i.e. a relationship with three people. A second bed playmate for her partner should provide a breath of fresh air.
But the plan didn’t work out: “I had practiced this lifestyle for about six months and thought: ‘No, I don’t want to do it like that, I don’t like it. We have to reorient ourselves'”.
The biggest problem was that Chanel and her boyfriend couldn’t agree on a woman type.
“My partner and I have such different tastes,” explains the young woman.
After long deliberations, the couple tried out an open relationship model in which both are allowed to have sex with other people.
“Anything goes, as long as you talk to each other and say, ‘Hey, this is what I want to do, this is the person I want to do it with, this is what’s going on, are you okay with that? ‘”
Both have found the ideal solution for themselves.
