I've been dating my wonderful boyfriend for six years and I love him very much. Over the last year though, I've started to change my beliefs on monogamy and have read quite a few books on polyamory (Including Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships). I really feel like it's a lifestyle I would like to pursue in some form, but including my current boyfriend. I've tried to ease into the subject with my boyfriend in the least threatening way I can think of (only relationships with other women, I've never mentioned other men), but he gets defensive and shuts the conversation down. How can we talk about this?
y manfriend and I recently downsized our bedroom. We moved our office area into our bedroom and moved our bed ( nothing else) into where the office used to be. The Bed takes up most of the room (we can't fit anything else in it)… it's more like a bednook really.
Now I need ways to make the room look more like a cozy sleeping space and less of a solitary confinement room. I've draped a scarf on the wall to make a "headboard" (it's just a mattress on the floor) but now it's got this "Old European shack in the middle of winter feel" to it.
I'm going to be moving in January to a different city, but I know I'll only be in that city for six months or so. With that in mind, I'm not looking to spend a lot of money on a bed, nor am I interested in buying a used bed. Do any of you have a creative temporary bed solution?
My deep fat fryer is one of my most beloved possessions. It has graced me many a time with the comfort of egg rolls, fritters, and other foods I probably shouldn't like so much.
Sadly, my little friend is a royal pain to clean up…
My husband and I just bought a house and rescued a dog! The issue is our cats, Truffle and Cheesecake. We've been spoiling them for a year and they are anti-social. Do Homies have any advice for new pet siblings and scarde-y cats?
I have several piles of branches that have fallen out of the trees in my back yard and I was looking for a way to use up some of them before my landlords come and clean them up. what do I need to do to them to make them safe for indoors? To make sure there are no bugs or fungi or anything else growing on/in them. And what would be the best way to seal them, or make them last a long time?
