Again thanks for not being strangers.
I find that when I go to poly meetings here that the men definitely out number the women. But when I got to parties hosted by my friends in the poly community, that it's about equal, with nowhere near the gender imbalance that the meetings have. So part of it is probably just the fact it's a meet-up group and men seem to be more active in that type of meeting.
