While the idea of a girlfriend being intimate with other men might be a relationship-ending scenario for some, this man's perspective is quite the opposite. In fact, it is this very element that fuels their relationship and keeps it flourishing.
Love, they say, knows no boundaries. For one particular couple, love has become an exhilarating adventure filled with trust, transparency, and a lot of naughtiness.
One boyfriend asserts that his romantic connection with his ladylove has only grown stronger ever since he suggested the idea of her exploring intimate encounters with other men while he's away at work.
Meet Matt and Zoe
During an interview for the YouTube series Love Don’t Judge, a British man named Matt, who chose not to disclose his last name, shared the unconventional love story of his four-year romantic relationship with a woman named Zoe.
The 36-year-old boyfriend revealed that he and his 31-year-old girlfriend had only been in the early stages of their relationship for a few months when he proposed the idea of her sleeping with other men.
Building Trust in Unusual Ways
Matt expressed his contentment during the program, stating, “When agreed to it, I was happy, because I’d been cheated on [before], so I was quite happy to find someone who wasn’t gonna cheat back.”
During his interview on the program Love Don’t Judge, Matt admitted that the idea of his girlfriend sleeping with other men occasionally evoked feelings of jealousy within him, pointing out that all of Zoe's partners are "young" and "good-looking."
Finding Joy in Jealousy
Despite grappling with occasional pangs of jealousy, Matt doesn’t let his feelings stop them from embracing the arrangement. In fact, he finds a certain level of enjoyment in it.
“It’s quite a nice feeling, even though it’s jealousy,” he shared.” Because at the end of the day, you know you’re included, and she’s coming home to me.”
Steamy Encounters Recorded
In a daring move, Matt suggested that Zoe record her steamy encounters with her bed partner's men, an unconventional request to which Zoe surprisingly agreed.
“You’d send me pictures, videos,” he recalls while talking to Zoe. “I ended up being involved in it [virtually]… It was like my own amateur p.rn.”
Overcoming Relationship Paranoia
This idea proved effective in eliminating the deep-seated paranoia that had plagued Matt's previous relationships. Moreover, it opened the doors to ways of intimacy, trust, and communication with Zoe, fostering a profound connection between them.
The key to the success of this usual arrangement was that Zoe engaged in relationships with other men exclusively during Matt's working hours, ensuring that their intimate moments were preserved for when he returned.
It’s Not Cheating If You’re Honest About It
While this unconventional arrangement may be viewed as a relationship deal-breaker by many, the couple adamantly asserts that it’s not "cheating" because there’s complete transparency and no secrecy surrounding their intimate encounters.
Inviting Boyfriend Along
Once Zoe started engaging in intimate activities with other men, she proposed that her boyfriend also explore intimacy with other women. However, Matt, who tends to be more reserved and shy, expressed hesitance and reluctance towards the idea.
“I never wanted to sleep with anyone else,” he told his girlfriend. “[But] you wanted to see me do it.”
After some consideration, Matt eventually agreed to Zoe's proposal, and the couple has maintained their quasi open-relationship for the past four years.
However, to ensure that their arrangement remains stable and avoid any potential issues, the couple has established and adheres to a set of strict rules that govern their open relationship.
Unshakable Love in the Face of Skepticism
In the face of doubt from friends, the couple stands firm in their deep love for each other, insisting that their unique relationship dynamic is an essential part of who they are and would always maintain their relationship as it is.
Zoe expressed her frustration with those who failed to understand her unconventional relationship with Matt, stating, “It’s just people not understanding. Educate yourself!”
Sharing Girlfriend with the World
In an effort to arouse Matt, Zoe takes it a step further by recording her intimate encounters with other men, something that enhanced their relationship and added a new layer of excitement.
Matt, on the other hand, went above and beyond by encouraging Zoe to monetize her intimate encounters by creating an OnlyFans account, sharing his girlfriend not only physically, but also sharing her private moments with the world virtually.
Love and Financial Rewards
The redhead has now blossomed into a certified sensation on the adults-only subscription site. As a result, the couple now enjoys a dual advantage of both romantic fulfillment and financial gains as a direct outcome of their arrangement.
Zoe and Matt, who both have children, recognize the need to eventually have a conversation about their unconventional romance with their children when they reach an age of understanding.
Fun Open Relationship
In the face of judgment, the couple remains steadfast in their commitment to their unconventional lifestyle, determined to live life on their own terms.
“We have so much fun,” Zoe asserted. “We enjoy each other’s company!”
Built on Trust & Honesty
Complete transparency is key in their open relationship as they agreed to share everything with one another, leaving absolutely no room for secrets.
Additionally, each of them has the freedom to express their preferences and is allowed to block the other person from engaging in intimate encounters with specific men or women they may not feel comfortable with.
Is It Real Love?
At the end of the day, their relationship may not be seen as perfect by many, with some not even considering it a genuine relationship with true love. However, love is a subjective experience with many definitions. And if they find happiness together, isn't that what truly matters?
