Hello Matt and Linh,
Welcome to our forum. Hope you will both get your individual accounts and post some!
I've never been to New Orleans so I'll have to take your word on your description, but I do know Daray has a point about the patience involved in finding the right partner for you. Sometimes it just takes awhile, wherever you live. Don't give up hope.
There's a lot of material to read here on Poly.com, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. There's a search feature too,
I hope we can be of some help!
