I started keeping a list of cool and interesting questions to ask a guy a while ago in an attempt to avoid awkward silences and generic conversation.

It’s not that she means to be rude, it’s just that Jim has been traveling for work, so it’s been a while since she’s seen him. As her “primary partner” and the man with whom she lives, he is the recipient of most of Leah’s attention, sexual and otherwise, but he understands her need to seek companionship from other quarters roughly one night a week.
Tonight is one of those nights, and soon Leah will head to Jim’s penthouse apartment, where the rest of the evening, she says, will probably entail “hanging out, watching something, having sex.” “She’ll usually spend the night,” Ryan adds nonchalantly, which gives him a chance to enjoy some time alone or even invite another woman over.
The chemistry is strong, the vibe is good, you spend a lot of time together, you know he cares about you…and just when you’re starting to settle in and relax, he seems to be pulling away a bit. he doesn’t seem as enthusiastic about you or the relationship…or maybe it’s nothing you can put your finger on, just a feeling in the pit of your stomach.
The first question when this happens is always: why? And talking about the same old things can get tedious.
Neither of them had had an open relationship before, though it was something that Leah had contemplated.
” is by far the most oft-asked question amongst girls in the dating world. Every couple who gets divorced once loved each other very much, they just couldn’t make it work.
If you or someone close to you is currently in crisis or in an emergency situation, contact your local law enforcement agency or emergency number.
"There was a side of me that was ecstatic – the teenage boy in me that wants to fuck everything I see," reveals Ryan, a millennial in an open relationship.
"But the other side of me was concerned about what this means in terms of intimacy and how the dynamics would work." When Leah and Ryan met at a wedding four years ago, they didn’t expect to develop this type of arrangement.
They discuss with their girlfriends, they read articles about what “signs” to look for, they analyze every interaction, every text, every facial expression, all in the hopes of finding that elusive answer. I could go on and on with these sappy, idealized, unrealistic portrayals of love we’ve been fed all our lives. When a man starts to withdraw or act distant, a lot of women reflexively panic and try to do whatever they can to reel him back in.
The sad fact is, this is a huge waste of time and energy because deciphering whether or not a guy likes you is incredibly simple. Although they have good intentions, most women inadvertently end up pushing their guy even further away. You feel powerless and scared and have no idea what the right move is.
