Cant help much with the MM couple but I'm always happy to make local poly friends. If you want to grab some lunch at some point, shoot me a PM. I'm in the San Fernando area.
I am as direct as a T-Rex with 'roid rage and about as subtle. It isn't intended to cause upset, I just prefer to talk plain. There are plenty of other people here who do the nice, polite thing much better than I can. I'm what you'd call a "problem dinner guest."
