Thankfully, I met a wonderful woman who changed my life for the better. Almost instantly we felt a deep connection to one another, and quickly formed an unwavering bond. To the outside world our strong relationship and connection is obvious, but few are able to see the true nature of the life we share. We travel the world together, provide each other with comfort & support, make each other laugh, sometimes we make each other cry, we give each other all the attention, love, and space needed, and we are absolutely definitely in love. The platonic and romantic love I have and share with my partner is deeper than anything I have ever experienced in any romantic or sexual relationship before.
If the support, happiness, and adventure my partner has filled my life with could be quantified and repayable, it would take me the rest of my life to repay what she has given me in three short years. On a daily basis I find myself thankful for her acts of kindness, demonstrations of love, and the emotional support (and education) she provides.
I intend on expanding in future posts, but a few aspects of my relationship with my partner need to be articulated:
My partner and I have an open relationship, in that we both love each other and have sexual relationships with others. We both came to realize early on in our relationship that there are many needs we could not fulfill for each other, so we decided to explore being with others physically. The loving support we have for each other, allowed this to grow into a lifestyle for both of us that we are completely comfortable with and open about. Despite a few growing pains and a sense of nervousness at times for both of us, we have seen our relationship grow stronger as a result of our connections and relationships with other people. I experience compersion on a regular basis with my partner as I feel an empathetic happiness for her when I know she is happy and her needs are met. My partner regularly expresses she experiences this state as well, as she is incredibly happy when I am in a good place. We both make a concerted effort to befriend the other people in our lives and demonstrate our support for each other.
My partner is a wonderful woman, an amazing human being, and kind soul. Her love, support, empathy, and kindness will never be forgotten and always be treasured. My partner is my best friend, and will be forever.
