The only one who can really answer that is your SO, truthfully.

For me, I don't care. If one of my partners is flirting, I'm hoping that she gets some response. I think she's amazing, having others recognize it is kinda cool for me.

Myself, I don't flirt. I've always found it annoying. I just live and do whatever. My relationships always spring from close friendships and always when I'm not looking for one, so it's just not my "weapon of choice".

I am a huge flirt. It comes with the terrority of being in the military and being a dancer. My gf is ok with this. I was that way before. I tend to stop when I am in a relationship but since she is poly I have free reign on this aspect of my life.

I get accused of being a flirt all the time by Redpepper. In humorous and playful way

I'm monogamous so I feel completely safe in chatting with whoever but I guess that could be seen as teasing as opposed to flirting.

I flirt all the time, the wife and gf find it charming, I don't know I'm doing it most of the time, jealousy doesn't work for us, so we just aren't jealous.

try doing a search on here in the tags for "dating" and see what comes up. Other than that, look for poly friends first. Its amazing what just happens

Default How Married Men Meet Women

Just like the title says.

My husband and I are ready to start dating. We would love to invite another woman to our family. But we realize that could take a long time. We have agreed that it would be nice to date independently too.

So we joined okcupid. We made our own profiles. I've gotten a lot of bites because I'm a girl.

He hasn't gotten any replies. He's attractive (yes I know I'm bias). He is a professional (petrophysics engineer). He has so many great qualities. I even helped him make his profile. But so far nothing.

I'm wondering if it's because the women he messages are turned off when they look at his profile and it says he is happily married in a poly relationship.

So how does a married poly guy enter the dating scene?

Has he tried looking for women who say they're poly in their profiles, maybe who are also married?

There do not seem to be very many of them.

We live in the south and there doesn't seem to be as big a crowd of poly people as in some other states.
