Are you meeting these people on dating sites? I have had the same responses on dating sites. It seems they attract a certain type of poly searcher sometimes. Not always, but stereotypically... unicorn hunting, young or aren't poly as I know and love it. Its so important to say the right thing on a dating profile.... ya, I would be going out and meeting people in real time. It might warrant a different result. Unless this IS in real time that you are talking about!?
Your poly is valid and just fine btw. I see no issue in what you seek.
Anyone want to be friends on Facebook?
