is ideal to have when two people are too far away from each other to have a real relationship, but still like each other. It's a way to see other people if the "need" arises, but still keep feelings for the one far away. However, it is especially important that you DO tell when you see someone else.
Near: Hi Far, what did you do last night?
Far: I totally hooked up someone last night.
Near: WTF! You slut, whore, bitch! I can't believe you!
Far: But we have an open relationship.
Near: Oh, I forgot.
Far: And it didn't mean anything. He wasn't that good anyway.
Near: Oh, okay...
Far: I still like you.
Near: I like you too, I suppose.
Far: Awesome, I'm happy we're still together.
