Being very forth coming with information in as honest and respectful way possible is your best bet; as is consideration for everyone involved with you and with your partners/lovers. Try doing a tag search for "lessons" and foundations" to see what others have written is what they recommend for a successful poly relationship dynamic.
I would find the time to grasp what it is you hope to gain for your future. Poly is a great dating alternative for people, as a lifestyle choice, but there are those of us that identify as poly and are committed to several people at a time throughout life. Figure out as much as you can about where you fit in and talk about it. Let anyone you meet know and what to expect from you. Life, love and sexuality are fluid, so remember not to make promises that might not work for you in the long run.
