A handsome young man is currently in a relationship with his nice guy partner. He has been a one man guy since he had his first emotional relationship. He broke up with his last BF and after a month met his current nice guy partner. They went into a serious relationship. But the handsome young man felt that he’s been so serious in every relationship he’s been with, one after another, that he wanted to know how it feels like being single and would like to try sleeping with different guys. He tagged this as a commitment issue.
He told his nice guy of a partner about this and asked him is it’s alright for them to cool it off for a while until he has experienced being single and do the things he feel he still wanted to do. Of course, his nice guy partner did not like the idea for fear of not having his handsome young man return to him. So the nice guy partner did not agree and they continued their relationship. Nevertheless, the handsome young man assured his nice guy partner that he loves him and does not want to lose him. He continued to comfort his nice guy partner that he feel the it’s just a phase the will pass sooner or later.
A couple of weeks passed and the handsome young man still had his commitment issues and kept convincing his nice guy partner to agree with his idea. The nice guy partner kept saying no to the proposition. Sometimes the handsome young man did not like the nice guy’s disapproval that he sometimes gives the nice guy the cold treatment whilst the nice guy partner kept up with it trying to understand his partner's situation.
One day, the handsome young man told the nice guy that he needed to tell him something important. Excited and concerned, the nice guy asked what it was. The handsome young man started talking about how he had commitment issues and how he wanted to experience singularity and try sleeping with other guys. The nice guy, baffled and confused, continued to listen.
After a long prologue, the handsome young guy confessed that he slept with another guy but assured the nice guy partner that he did not get aroused and that he did not liked the experience. He said that after that encounter, he discovered that he can’t afford to sleep with other guys unless he is in-love with them. He affirmed that that experience helped him resolve his commitment issues and brought him to realize how much he loved his nice guy partner.
Was it infidelity or a process of realization?
