BECAUSE I didn’t want to try swinging, my new partner split up with me.
I am 54 and he is 65. We got together on a dating site two months ago but because of coronavirus we have yet to meet.
We were messaging and had a few Zoom calls – it seemed to be going well.
He began talking about his sexual past and mentioned he’d been swinging.
He asked me if I would go with him but I flatly refused, saying it is not something I have done nor would I ever want to.
He took it badly and the next morning I got a text that said he was splitting with me.
MARRIAGE-CHRONICLES.COM: Aside from the risks of further spreading coronavirus, you are totally within your rights to refuse.
Bringing other people into a relationship is risky and can cause huge problems of hurt and damaged trust.
The fact he disappeared so soon after learning you would not try swinging suggests that finding a swinging partner was his main focus.
As you are not remotely interested in trying this, it sounds like you have had a lucky escape.
This swinging act is also not generally acceptable, especially in the religious sphere. As Christian you can’t be involved in such romance.
Relationship and marriage is not all about s3x and fun, it is for life, personal improvement and experience.
