Oh, you basically state what you're looking for. I don't use the word "polyamory" or any form of that - I say I am not interested in exclusivity. People understand that better, and it keeps things clear. Some people hear "poly" and think it's swinging and all about sex. So, you basically have to take the time to explain what you want and how you see relationships for yourself.

There are so-o-o-o many threads here about this. Please take some time to read around the forums - you may find that something someone posts about the topic strikes you as the perfect approach when meeting people.
