What makes a guy ask for an open relationship?

is it because he doesn't like the girl enough, he doesn't want to flat out break up with her or all of the above?

  • You got to be open minded for this. We are in a new era. Back then it was a taboo and frowned upon. Now there is no labels. Lets face it how many of you searched for porn of mfm, mmf, ffm, orgies, swingers, gangbangs and groupsex? Look at all the surveys that pornhub and other sites put out. Its much easier to access porn these days and vidoes vs a magazine. That being said some find it as a turn on or experimental. So if someone asks for this well you got to think do you want this and how do you play a role in this? Many fantasies become a reality for the ones that do not dare say thats what they want. You got to be ok with sharing. How about welcome their other partners in and you partake in it. Dont knock it until you try it. Who knows you may like. Its ok if you dont or this is not for you. Overall it a choice both you and your partner have to discuss and agree on. Its a form of Taboo and dont say it hasn't crossed your mind. Just look at the movies you watch 50 Shades of Grey and ither movies where you see the guy or girl experimenting with another girl, guy or both. Its all over the movies, social media, music etc... so you need to think os this for you and if so how will you welcome this form of dating. Many questions will be asked and some may not be answered. May set some ground rules or just walk away. Your choice. Good luck.

  • because he is polygamous. it is very natural, actually more natural than monogamy. he doesn't want to cheat on you behind your back. open relationships are one ways to respect your love of life. others (huge percent of married population) prefer cheating in secret.

  • Its because you are not the one that he would want to spend his life with, so why would he want to only be with you?
    I met a guy once who told me he was in an open relationship of 3 years and he wanted me to go out with him. I was like "bye felicia". I stayed friends with him (absolutely no benefits, because eww). He fell in love with me and ditched that girl for a closed relationship. Open relationships are open until the real relationship comes along. Dont settle.

    • Closed relationship mean you have to deal with the one horrible girl open mean you can escape her any time

    • Easily solved, dont date someone horrible

    • You're not wrong... But it's very hard to find someone not horrible

  • Sex. I would question attraction to me, his sexual desires, etc. there could be something such as a fetish he’s not sharing with you. Doesn’t mean he necessarily wants to break up with you, he’s just not 100% sexually satisfied. That being said, you shouldn’t change or try thing you’re not comfortable with just to keep him either.

  • He doesn't want you for anything more than sex. He has no intention of a long range relationship with you.

  • Could be a number of reasons, if this is a personal experience, you may want to add more context to the question. Interesting fact tho, humans are one of the only species who believe in monogamy.

    • Some humans may believe in it, but there isn't much evidence of people practicing it.

  • He wants to keep the cookie and eat it at the same time. He can sleep with more than one person. No strings attached, nothing expected of him, he can do as he please and fuck who he likes.

  • he doesn't want to lose you but he's interested in other girls too

  • It means he wants an open relationship. It doesn’t mean that hie finds his girlfriend is inadequate.

  • All of the above. You are not enough but he wants to maintain that base of high quality sex. Asking for an open relationship is an invitation to move on.

  • An excuse to fuck someone else

  • They are liberal men

  • He doesn't give a shit about her and probably has something wrong with him preventing him from having a normal relationship anyway.

  • If my SO would ask me this I'd instantly be suspicious of her cuz u only ask something like that when you have someone in mind. So don't say no right away, ask who first so u know. Then u can decide what u do after.

  • Could be a number of things but usually it’s because he wants to keep you and have sex with other people too.

  • It could be both.
    Even that she doesn't have everything to not feel the need for getting the missing parts she doesn't have.

    Some people have problems with getting deep enough or enough of the different ones to automatically only want one.

  • Anyone who wants an open relationship is severely mentally I'll and should be treated as such.

  • It could be just a goal he has set, nothing more. His environment. Who knows, people get fixated on things.
    I doubt it has to do with you.
