I cant really comment ither way.( Im not out looking). I figure Ill just let the chips fall as they may. Open and honest is the best way( and it sounds like you were being that). I would have to say that in one sense you can use this to weed out the guys that just want to "get with you". If they dont respect you enough to understand that being poly isnt an open door to your bed maybe its best not to continue that "getting to know you" period longer then that.
I told my father today that WE are poly( LR and I) and I was so worried. Turns out that he and his wife are swingers
hahaah He was like "hey kiddo what ever makes you happy" He was one cool ass father
