hat do you do if a lover, girlfriend, or wife asks you for an open relationship… and you don't want one? How do you say no yet not look weak or cause reactance?
We've had a good deal of articles on Girls Chase that discuss entry into an open relationship. Either getting into one with an existing girlfriend, or how to find one open to it.
Today's article is on the other side of things. What do you do when your girl asks you to 'open up' the relationship... so she can have sex with other guys?
This can be tricky to deal with. Because when she hits you with it, you may not know:
- Does she mean it? Or is it a test?
- How do I say 'no' without looking jealous or weak?
- If I say 'no', will she do it anyway behind my back?
Much rides on your response. Get it wrong, and you may hurt her respect for you, or encourage her to sneak around behind you.
As you'll see in this article though, you can absolutely turn these requests down, and come out looking stronger for it. How it goes is all in how you frame things.

However, if what you'd like is to knock down any talk of your girl taking penis from other men, then read on, and let's handle that issue.
