SS 256: Smoothing Re-Entry, When Our Partners Date or Play Without Us


All three of us here on the Swingset have occasionally dated and played independent of our partners, and all three of our partners have dated and played independent of us. A moment that can be tricky, especially early on in the swinging or poly lifestyles, is that moment of re-entry, where our partner (or us) returns from a date or play session. We take time to dissect how re-entry feels when you’re the partner “left behind”, and when you’re the partner on the go.
