Personally, I've found what works best on profiles on OKC is to explain. I don't just say I'm poly, I explain what that means to me, which is romantic relationships, honesty, openness, whether I am looking for long term or not. I also do explain that I am not looking to date couples together but am open to dating individual people that may be in a relationship with each other.

Now saying that, if you just list what you are looking for or not looking for, it's typically a turn off. Talk about you, then add in at the bottom the important stuff. Oh and be prepared for a lot of wading. No matter how I say not interested I still get couples and guys that want a 'discreet meeting'. Still, if you are willing to wade through it, you will find those pearls in the dust!
Me: 40 pansexual poly.
DH: My husband of 21 yrs and father of 3 teen girls.
DC: LDR of +9 years/former
