After being on OkCupid for a few weeks and experiencing weird situations, like being matched with one of my professors, I was ready to give up on it.
Right before I did, though, I saw a profile of a man who was poly. I messaged him because of our shared interest in an author. He is married and had a girlfriend, so there wasn't a lot of pressure. It was nice because I had never been in a poly relationship. He and I chatted for some time as friends. It was a lot of fun.
After he and his girlfriend broke up, we started talking about the possibility of dating. It was nice because I had been given plenty of time to get used to the idea. To this day, things between us are wonderful.
