I know a lot of people who started out mono but began practicing polyamory later in life, in their 30s, 40s and (me) 50s. Unless you're young and childless or older and child-free, doing poly is very hard. Little kids complicate things, and some people don't want to have their teenagers deal with Mommy or Daddy #2. But once those kids hit college, older but still vital people have a LOT more freedom! Yay, empty nest!

Have you tried OK Cupid?

OTOH, if you're just a depressive pessimistic guy... that could hurt your attraction to others.
