I think rather than trying to form your ideal relationship, it's easier to just see what happens. I think the only way to really know if someone is interested in the poly lifestyle, would be to talk about it with them.
Letting a relationship flow into place, I think is definitely the best idea though. It's when we try to control things that they can really go wrong.
