Hoping Open Peaceful Experiences Feel Unlike Loss If "someone might get hurt" is the standard you're going to apply to all future relationships—if it's a deal breaker—then you shouldn't date or fuck anyone else ever again, HOPEFUL, because there's always a chance someone is going to get hurt.
I met a new guy two weeks ago, and the sex is incredible. I'm hoping we can figure out something in between—something like a sexual friendship where we enjoy and support each other and experiment together without tying ourselves down—but I have found very little evidence of such undefined relationships working without someone getting hurt.
