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.
Near: Yea.

A relationship in which two people agree that they want to be together, but can't exactly promise that they won't see other people too. Basically, to have it all: a significant other and the freedom to hook up with other people. Common during college for many post-high school relationships.
"Are you still with Joe?"
"Well, we're in a open relationship now. And it's don't ask, don't tell."
"Are you okay with that?"
"You know, it IS college, and there are so many cute guys out there..."

An open relationship is a relationship where one person does not own the other. The couple are not exclusively seeing each other and can date, flirt and hook up with other people should they wish to do so. In a true open relationship the couple will be fully honest with each other (unlike most regular relationships). They will not get pissed at each other for stupid things such as not ringing the day before, wearing a slutty top, passing out cold in a club, kissing that lesbian in the lift. Infact they will just love each other for who they are and support each other through times of need. Although other people will say they are sluts and it will never work, they onlys say this because they are jealous. In the end the couple will get bored of seeing other people because they realise they are the best two out there. Then they get married and have beautiful children. And retire together in Goa.
Couple in an open relationship:

Holly – “Get any luck last night?”
Jeremy - “Some nice assed latin girl”
Holly “As nice as me?”
Jeremy – “No Holly. Youre the best.”
Holly – “I know. Can you test me on my hindi?”
Jeremy – “Whats Pani”?

a). a facebook setting that allows you to give in to your sluttastic urges while keeping a "saftey net" around in the event that you're unable to hook up with anything hotter.

b). a great way to set yourself up for some hellish drama, instead of being honest with your significant other.
