Glad to initiate a friendship with you, and we can talk about just about anything you'd like to talk about. If it doesn't happen to be poly-related per se (e.g., conversations about Mormonism which I'd be more than willing to be a part of), just post it on the Fireplace board
and let me know that you did.
I see you are reaching out and looking for new poly peeps to include in your life. Here's some foods for thought.
- We've a Dating & Friendships subforum which helps find peeps near you ... check it out.
- A couple of poly-friendly dating sites are:... in case that might be something you'd like to try.
- You can find local poly organizations via the following links:
... and, googling "polyamory" with the name of your State/nearest major city, will often yield some poly groups in your area.
"As for where to meet poly people, if by some chance you are interested in anything alternative like Renaissance fairs, goth culture, sci-fi conventions, indie music, bdsm, or any small fringe group, you will be more likely to meet people who have at least heard of poly and are accepting of it."

Even if it's not an "alternative" type group, if there's a club or something in your area that does something you're interested in, you can always join that group and it just gives you a way to get out there and meet people. If you meet someone on a platonic level and get to talking about poly, then they can decide how they feel about it without any "pressure to agree." Then if they do decide poly doesn't bother them too much, and some kind of romantic connection subsequently develops, you'll already have "had the poly conversation" with them.
Love Seattle. Glad to be here. Just moved here, early December last year. Have some great friends/relatives that live here.
