Open Relationships. Do they work?

No. They don't.

In fact the term "open relationship" is an oxymoron.

I don't think they would, because how could you really love somebody if you are busy sleeping with/seeing another person... and they are doing the same to you? That's not love, that's just a fall back plan so you don't have to worry about being totally alone.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

...oddly enough, that's exactly what I thought when I saw the thread title...

i think it can.

but both partners have to be very secure, mature, and confident in their love.

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

I agree with decemberlove, it depends on the people. There are certain couples who care about each other but still like to see other people. And they are able to make it work this way.

I think for the majority however, an open relationship wouldn't work cause people in general have a tendancy to get jealous about stuff their partners do.
