Hello Jon and Welcome !!
People are going to think what they are going to think. Just be yourself! I have been approached by a woman who knows I am interested in joining up with another couple for a long term relationship. She and I have talked and I decided I was interested in meeting her since she seemed to be an emotionally stable person and we have some things in common. She works for an organization that I have considered doing volunteer work with. I was trying to establish communication with her male lover (since he had requested info about me and photos of me) and in that proceess, she revealed to me that her male lover is married and his wife does not know about her and will not know about me. So, I had to tell her that this does not fit within my polyamorous lifestyle which is based on openess and honesty.
So, what I'm saying is that the best way to help people "realize the wisdom in a serious approach to this lifestyle" is to live it.
Good luck and hope to hear more !!
