Thank you for the varied perspectives! That's great
I'm a little leary about the online dating sites but can definitely see their pre-screening value. Maybe after this summer I'll sign up on OKCupid since I hear it mentioned regularly in Poly circles these days. This summer I'm going to do the "increase your social circle" dating lure instead
You're definitely right about how, when dating early on, nobody expects exclusivity. My history has not had a lot of light dating in it, however, so it'll be fun to challenge myself to overcome old habit with new lifestyle desire.
Thanks so much for your responses, I'll see you in other threads!
