I'm a solo person who is dating. I pretty much never use the term polyamory when talking to my dates/potential lovers in the beginning, unless they bring it up first. It's too confusing, and I find too many people think it's swinging. I talk about not wanting exclusivity and will mention monogamy. Once a convo gets rolling or I get to know them, I use the word polyamory, but only if it's useful. I don't like the idea that I might be projecting some pre-conceived structure on how I want to be in relationships.
