It’s not that she means to be rude, it’s just that Jim has been traveling for work, so it’s been a while since she’s seen him. I see,” reveals Ryan, a millennial in an open relationship. But the other side of me was concerned about what this means in terms of intimacy and how the dynamics would work.
