Pretty quiet on the board today...so I thought I'd ask this question and maybe garner some replies from those who have tried and stopped swinging but still are here on the board somewhere. Those of you who have come close to quitting should feel free to answer too.
It seems as though a lot of us have gone through some hard times accomplishing this great task. Perhaps it's because the one who is more aggressive towards the lifestyle is accused of being obsessed with it or the slower is accused of not opening their mind so after going through that for a while you give up.
Or, you find that you just can't overcome the idea of seeing your SO wth someone else.
Maybe it's because you, in general, mistrust couples and your SO trusts them.
Maybe because you, as the instigator, found that it just wasn't what you thought it would be.
I'm basically asking for your reasons...and the above are just a few examples.
I don't really expect a lot of responses from the regular board members as they seem to have overcome these things, so I'm asking those of you who have "cum 'n' gone" so to speak.
I would also invite answers from those who have seemingly come up against an "obstacle" where you just seemed at odds on something but overcame it...only to happily continue on in the lifestyle.
