I have been in an open relationship for almost 5 months.
Initially the other wanted a more normal relation, but given that I had left a relationship beforehand I didn't feel ready to jump into something new straight away.
I always made my intentions clear that I wanted to change things to a normal relationship.
Fast forward 4 months, I feel I am ready to have a normal/closed relationship.
They say they're just waiting for me to be ready.
Transitioning from an open relationship is not so easy as there are unwritten rules for normal relationships that must be discussed.
Basically, I broached on deleting our dating accounts, discussed what we used them for, and how we'd proceed.
I wanted to do it together, like a celebratory event. But it was getting late and both needed to sleep. The person was on their phone before sleep and said they'd been deleted.
Before I went to sleep, I said there's a difference between deleting the apps and the accounts themselves.
I wanted this a lot more when they used bumble making for friends. It has a friend mode. But given more trust needs to be created, I won't happily let them use it for that at this time. It can be revisited down the road.
I didn't see what they did, if they even deleted the apps, truly. Their phone doesn't show notifications from these apps.
So in the morning I browse the apps I know they're registered on and low and behold, they exist.
Do I clarify I want these accounts gone? Or decide they lied by omission when I said I want the accounts gone and they "uh huh"'d to that? And I should drop them?
