I don't think NK's 1st post here was unkind or insensitive at all. It is true that "trawling through the internet" was an odd way to describe looking to meet poly people, and I thought her comment was funny.
To the OP, you haven't offered us much information but you say that you "want to make friends for now." Yet you're looking for poly friends. So, does that mean you want to join some organized meetup? To find groups in your area, you can try searching Meetup.com
