7. Discuss your fantasies.
Your partner may have fantasies that he is scared to tell you in case you freak out. Unfulfilled fantasies can fuel a desire to act them out, and if you're not even willing to listen, they might just do that with someone else. Encourage him to talk, be open-minded and non-judgmental and if there are some that don't disgust you, be willing to at least consider trying them. He'll thank you for being such a cool and understanding girlfriend. —Miss Natasha Ngonyama
8. Talk about it.
Open and honest communication from the beginning will help to establish the tone of your relationship. Discuss infidelity and get a feel of how you both want to handle such things. Establish under what circumstance(s) it is acceptable or pardonable, and review all the possible scenarios. —Chidi Asika-Enahoro
