1 For a female, the state or condition of being single. For a male, the state or condition of being a servile fuck-wit.

2. A heterosexual relationship or marriage in which the female engages in sexual relations with multiple partners and somehow talks the male into accepting this. The male partner in such a relationship is known as the patsy or victim. This person may speak openly about being "in an open relationship," but generally does not himself pursue alternate partners. The male in these cases is almost always a dutiful idiot, often a SNAG, who sits at home and develops a potentially deadly ulcer, while his partner gets nasty with every dude she can. This type of male is also known as a man-bitch.

The Open Relationship is exclusively dominated by the female. Normal men who wish to pursue multiple sex partners remain single or cheat. This does not include so-called swingers, a sub-class of perv.

The Open Relationship is, more often than not, a precursor to divorce, or occasionally to homicide.
Debbie and Emil are in an open relationship.

Dude! Oh my God. She invited me over for dinner with the two of them.

Don't do it, man. Fake your own death. Anything. There is no good outcome.

What if I go over while he's out of town?

Oh, that's fine then.

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.

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.
