"Recognize the motives for pursuing an open relationship. It should stem from personal desires and needs, not as a fix for a broken relationship or due to external pressure."
"Regular check-ins with your partner are crucial. Your comfort levels may change over time, so keep communication open and be prepared for honest, vulnerable discussions."
"Set clear boundaries to manage expectations in an open relationship. These may change over time, but they ensure all parties are comfortable with the dynamics of the relationship."
