Welcome to our forum.
There's always the Dating & Friendships subforum
on this site, and plus if you've found a meetup group in your area, that's a good way to meet people and get to know them.
Take your time and do some studying (such as reading various threads here on Polyamory.com). Some of your questions may already be answered, and if they're not, you can always post and ask.
Hope you enjoy your stay here.
