commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Why Couldn't He Follow the Rule?
As someone in an open relationship, I couldn't disagree with Dan and most of the commenters more. Most people seem to be fixating on the fact that it isn't reasonable to expect a partner to not kiss a date. Maybe so, maybe not, but either way, it's irrelevant. What is relevant is that boyfriend made a promise to LW that he broke. Twice. If the promise was unrealistic, BF ideally should have recognized that before making it--and certainly should have realized it after breaking the promise the first time. LW has every reason to be upset. I would be, too.
