Welcome to our forum.
If you haven't already been there, try out our "Dating & Friendships" area (you can use the "Forum Jump" menu, bottom of this page, right hand side, to get there). It may help you hone in on potential friends in your locality close to you.
In the meantime, I hope you'll make many new friends from all over. Polyamory.com is a place of many opportunities (for socialization, learning etc.).
Glad you could be here.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
