Thanks all for the responses and advice! Just a note-we do not have a single profile for the both of us. We did at one point have 2 separate profiles. We have now decided to just have me be the only one with the profile and have mentioned in the "about me" section that "I" am in an open/poly relationship. This has helped greatly than where we were before with stating outright I am poly and that "we" were looking for someone.
I do agree that unless you have 2 separate profiles, only having 1 and stating "I" instead of "we" will be less intimidating and somewhat relieves the pressure of having to date both of us a couple or even thinking it has to be that way.
Thanks again everyone!
