I invited Relationship Style Expert Ria Bloom to talk us thru:
How to know what style of relationship you want
If you are built more for an open or monogamous relationship
And what is the foundation for any healthy relationship – no matter how it’s shaped
I wasn’t sure about monogamy when I first met Naz
And neither was he really. 🤯
Perhaps it was the dreaded divorce rate being so high
Or some of the myths out there that predict the inevitable death of love + romance like
Over time the sex gets boring and
The spark just dies
The 7 year itch
You get where I’m going with this.
So we talked about open relationships
Which threw wide open my issues with abandonment –
And I owned that
And all the intense emotions that came along with it.
So open relationship wasn’t really going to work for us
Monogamy forever didn’t feel like a complete truth for us either
So we decided on owning
(I just made that title up)
With the space for this to change in future
Should either of us feel it
Relationship style is a choice these days
And making the one that is right for you
Can be downright confusing
Are you for
⭐ Classic Monogamy
⭐ Monogamish – the new black
⭐ Pioneering with Polyamory
🤷♀ Or somewhere in between all of that 🤷♂
Being upfront about where you stand – whether you are certain or if its something you want to explore –
Will allow you to start a relationship off with trust, truth and clarity.
And that's the foundation for long-lasting goodness.
