    making a change as such requires both individuals wanting as well as needing the same thing from each other. Communicating your needs as well as expressing your feelings about wanting a committment would be your best bet.  You need know where you stand in any relationship, whether it involves intimacy or just an unconditional friendship.    Don't blindly go along with someonething you have no interest in being apart of.  If the person feels the same regarding being committed to YOU, then more power to You, if not then it is for you to cut the ties that bind you and focus on that which you Need elsewhere!......ciao

    Are you kidding me? You want to go from giving candy to your mate then taking that candy away? Your mate may try it but in the end most open relationships just dont work.

    Or you could train your mate. Anytime your mate wanders off just pop him upside the head and say, "NO MORE CANDY FOR YOU".
    He will either enjoy the pain or leave. Either way you now have a new issue.

    why does everyone think that being in an open relationship has to mean it is not already a committed relationship?! Can't it be both? Or is this too naieve?! :-/
