I want to be in an exclusive romantic relationship with my boyfriend but sexually... Well, I'm bisexual and I want to be with a woman once in a while. Fortunately he has no problem with this :)
For me personally right now, I need a monogamous, exclusive model. That doesn't mean I'll always feel this way in the future, but for me right now, it's what works best.
Just to be clear, when we talk about exclusivity, we're talking about things people do (or don't) only want to do or have with someone else in a relationship; the "fences" people can, do or may create in relationships in terms of what sexual or romantic things are just supposed to be between them or not.
What those things are will vary, so figure we're asking about what things you would consider sexual or romantic.
