A "couple" that can't commit to a relationship. Basically just friends with benefits.
Boy: Hey you have a boyfriend?

Girl: Yeah, but we're in an open relationship. We can see other people.

Boy: So you have sex with other guys?

Girl: I can if I wanted to.

Boy: So you're basically a slut who covers it up by saying you're in an "open relationship."

1. Usually a long-distance relationship where the couple still want to be together, but one or both of them also wants to see other people. Occasionally used to test their partner. Sometimes causes heartbreak, especially when:

A: One person falls for the new person they hooked up with and falls out of love with their long distance partner.
or
B: When the person in the long distance relationship didn't tell the new person that he/she was already in a long distance relationship before dating said person, i.e cheating.

2. A polyamorous relationship.
1. Girl: "Okay, we gotta talk. I really do love you, and I wanna stay together, but I'm in college now and 100 miles away from you. I still love you, but I want to meet other people while I'm in there. So, let's make this an open relationship, okay?

Guy:...Sure.

A: Guy: Ugh, I can't believe I agreed to an open relationship, now she left me for some player!

B: Girl#1: "Man, I can't believe that he actually dumped me for this chick in college!"

Girl#2: "Ouch. Didn't you know? He is in an open relationship with her."

2. Girl#1: I heard that Jack is in an open relationship, isn't that crazy?! He walks around holding two girls hands like he owns them!
Girl#2: Well, hey. At least he's not cheating on them.

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.

An open relationship is a relationship where one person does not own the other. The couple are not exclusively seeing each other and although sex is usually kept between the two, they 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. 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.

The immaturity of a person, who is not willing to commit themselves to someone. They want to be with each other, but want to see other people, too.

Also an act of insecurity where the person needs more than one mate to satisfy themselves and to boost their ego.
Example for "Open Relationship." would be: I love you, but I like them, too, and I wanna see them. Can we be in an "Open Relationship."?
