You are right. It shouldn't be very common. I guess I was unlucky (or maybe lucky to have had that kind of relationship at one point in my life?). It's not that I was unable to love anyone else, it's just that that person was so perfect for me. Do understand, though, I'm not stuck in the past nor am I willing to sacrifice my life for that memory. We are still friends, she is married, I'm living with my girlfriend whom I love. All is well. But I'd be lying if I said I never think about how things would have been if we stayed together.

You might also look at it from your gf's point of view. She needs to know how you really feel. It might cause her to want to move on.

OP,

Have you considered, though, that you might just be a restless person at heart? Can you see yourself as a "oatmeal stirring" kind of guy?

I really don't see the benefit of an open relationship for a younger couple. I imagine it works for a middle aged couple that has kids, mortgage and such keeping them together. But why have such a relationship in your 20s?
