I think you're misreading the suggestions in response to your original post.
If you want to look for people to form a relationship with, then those belong in the Personals section for your area, hence why your original post was moved there.
If you'd like to introduce yourself and a bit about your situation, then those go in the introductions area.
If you want to talk about poly relationships, yours or others, having them, surviving them, thriving in them, then those go in the relationships corner.
General Poly Discussions is for discussing poly in more general terms, more like the theory and philosophy of it.
Meeting and Events area is a good place to look for local events or groups in your area...and the Pacific NW is a very busy poly place indeed. You'll have no shortage of events if you can make it into Seattle.
