What do you do if your boyfriend asks you to sleep with other people?

16 August 2016, 17:07 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - This means one or three or five  of the following; a. they would like to do the same thing, b. they already cheated or still are, c. they were planning to and lastly d. they are also as bored of you as you are of them. Forgot e. it is a set up and the minute you do, you are dumped.

Relationships no longer die normal deaths like before like cheating, irreconcilable differences, or whatever used to happen in the old days.

How do you sit down and ask your partner if you could see…sorry, sleep with other people? That is something you read in the westernized culture and African couples are starting to adopt it.

Open relationships are not a new thing but they are a new thing to Kenyan couples or I am just naïve and have no idea what people actually do in relationships.

If you desired an open relationship from the minute the two of you got together and discussed it; that is a different matter.

Thing is if it is later on from a stable relationship and your partner comes to you with such a request, the reasons I highlighted before could be the culprits and that means you should re-evaluate whether you want to stay in that relationship. A normal person would not be comfortable with a partner they actually love and want to be with going out to be with other people in that way. If they agree, you should consider that it is a trap that might be the end of your relationship.

You should also consider your partner’s feelings. If they have never come to you with such a request, then don’t go to them with one either. It is basically telling them that you no longer want them and you would rather be with other people.

You are telling them that they no longer attract you but other people do.

But if you already asked and they were excited, trust me you did not win. You have just given them the pass they needed to continue cheating or they can now be with that person they had been eyeing for a long time.
