    How possible does a Zunist Iceland sound

    I'm trying to think of how you could make it happen. You'd need to capture a Zunist concubine very, very early and hope she could heritage out your heir, without getting rid of the Norse culture, since you need that for sea raids. Unless you just made a custom dude, in which case all bets are off.

    You pull a knife on your partner at any point during a relationship, you generally deserve the nicknames you earn :P

    Jeez, so a good friend of mine just had a relationship of 4 years implode on her and it was soooorrrrrrrrta her fault?

    About 4 years ago she met this dude in her first year of university. He wasn't a student, he worked full time. After a year of dating, they moved in together. After a year of living together (so the second year of their relationship), their schedules became such that they barely saw each other, school became her entire life plus she had a part time job, and his work consumed his, and their schedules were opposites. They'd have like, one day off together maybe every two weeks, and they'd be so exhausted on those days they'd really not want to do anything and would just want to decompress (or she'd have to spend those days studying anyway).

    This went on for another couple years, and their relationship cooled. Their sex life became practically non-existent, and they pretty much turned into roommates who were technically in a relationship. They weren't shitty with each other, but they were both pretty lonely and unhappy with this situation.

    So about eight months ago, she got the idea to "open the relationship" and make it polyamorous. They'd still be together, and live together, but they'd be allowed to date other people whose schedules fit their lives better. He wasn't in favor of it at first, and for a while believed it was just a prelude to her breaking up with him. But, eventually he agreed and they tried it out.

    It went alright for him. He met women online and went on some casual dates. He also started dating a girl from work.

    For her, nnnnnot so much. It turns out, while there's a giant swath of dudes who are willing to date you if you're blatantly cheating on your SO with them, they're not willing to date you if you're an openly polyamrous woman and your boyfriend is cool with it. She felt like her only solution was to lie, either to lie and say she was cheating on her boyfriend, or lie about her boyfriend not existing (de facto cheating on the guy she was dating, basically, by not informing him that she's still with her existing SO, really). Both sucked, and she hated it.

    When she didn't meet guys who had a problem with her polyamory, she met dudes who were too into her polyamory and assumed it came with a bunch of other stuff that for her, it didn't? Like, they assumed she was bisexual (she isn't, she's hetero) or into BDSM (she's not), or into some MFM action (she is not).

    So after eight months of this failed experiment (for her, for him it's been great!), she wanted to close the relationship, return to monogamy, seek out couples counseling and try to make their relationship work and find time for each other, etc.

    He said no, she's being selfish, that is wrong of her to open this up and then try to close it purely because it's not working out for her, etc.

    There are people on this forum who may agree with him, idk. I'm not super duper interested in having that debate?

    Anyway, the conclusion they ended up coming to was, it was best for them to end the relationship. He moved out, ended up moving in with the girl from work he was dating, and now she is alone and depressed.

    Right now, she is in pain and hurting and I am not going to point out hey, maybe the part where you tried to convince him to go to couples counselling and work on your schedules and make the relationship work should've been your first move instead of treating polyamory as a band-aid, huh.

    But like, at a future point, if it's clear she hasn't come to that conclusion herself and purely blames him, as her friend we might have to have a talk about that.

    I like Nerve so far and Dave Franco hasn't even shown up yet.

    And I like Dave Franco.

    I have a lot of respect for actors that manage to literally repulse me, like Robert Deniro in This Boys Life and Dave Franco in Scrubs.

    *feels relief in mistaken belief that it is impossible for two people to actually like one another. *

    How can you be in what's essentially a dead relationship for 3 years? I just don't understand.

    Pony, nobody was at fault in the strict sense. I think their relationship was petering out on its own and she should be encouraged to accept that.

    Yes

    And if you're a shepherd and you love more than one of your flock,

    You're polylamborous

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    I've never understood people who treat polyamory as a relationship band-aid

    if you believe in polyamory as like, a valid expression of affection and your preferred relationship structure then okay sure man

    or if it's something a couple decides to undertake as a mutual exploration thing at a certain point in their lives okay i guess?
