TOO YOUNG FOR MONOGAMY – Tales From the Seattle Brunch

by Miss Bliss

“I’m in an open relationship,” says Geneva.

Eight bisexual women have come together for brunch, community and friendship on a rare sunny day in Seattle. This is my first trip to the great state of Washington, and in the last twenty-four hours I have fallen in love with Seattle’s mountains, hills, trees, and clean sparkling air. During brunch, the city woos me even more by introducing me to seven beautiful, bright and beguiling bi-women.

“You are,” asks Sadie, the blonde with perfectly painted dark eyes. “I’m jealous.”

“How is that working out for you,” asks the tall brunette, Nicole, sitting across from me.

“Well, we were monogamous the first year we dated. I think it’s important to establish a relationship first before opening it up. But we’re both in our early twenties and we knew when we first met that we were way too young to be strictly monogamous.”

“I don’t like to share,” says Sadie. “Being with a couple is one thing, but being in a couple and bringing in another? I couldn’t do it.”

“So you both date other people separately,” I ask.  “Other girls I know who are in open relationships often say the funny thing about it, is the more you date other people, the more you appreciate your relationship and the less you want to date others.”

“It’s funny you mention that,” says Geneva, looking at me with her clear, bright eyes and pretty freckled skin.  “My man will meet one of the guys I am dating and he’ll tell me later, ‘That guy’s not up to your level.’ He does it in a really sweet way, too.  It isn’t like he’s trying to put down the guy out of jealousy, he truly wants me to be with men who respect and appreciate me.”

“I’m jealous,” says Sadie.  “I want that!”

“Well, darling, anyone as cute as you are, anytime,” Geneva says with a flirtatious smile, completely in her power.

“Me, too,” says Nicole with a fetching smile.

“It isn’t easy.  You have to communicate a lot for it to work.  I mean, sure, I have buttons that can be pushed and I can get jealous.  Like if he dates a petite blonde – everything I am not – it’s hard not to feel a little jealous.  But you talk about it, work through it, and grow.  So far, it’s worked for us.”

This is why I enjoy bringing bisexual women together for conversation, friendship and support.  Some of the girls who came to the brunch are monogamous, others are in open relationships, and some are looking for a combination of both.   Simply meeting other women who are creating successful new kinds of committed relationships helps girls to realize there are many options for love.  Although some bi-women are content with traditional monogamous relationships, others are searching for something more.  By taking a risk and inviting strangers to brunch, bi-women are finding each other and discovering supportive friends.

As always, after the brunch I received over 30 e-mails from Seattle girls who want to attend the next event in Seattle.  If you are in Seattle, and curious about meeting other bi-girls, I encourage you to join the private, free community site the Bliss Warrior team built this year, Hotel Bliss.   Seattle girls are checking in and would like to meet you.  (CLICK HERE to apply for membership.)
