People always are asking me "So... what blend ARE you?" It doesn't seem like a biggie to me.
But from her profile, he doesn't know that her CULTURE is Asian, only that her FACE is.

I don't think someone who refers to the "hassle" of monogamous relationships is necessarily a red flag. Many people are seeking poly dating because they do indeed find mono dating to be emotionally difficult or impractical. I myself feel that for me it's not worth the trouble of deciding to give up other dating opportunities just to be exclusive with one person. That would be my interpretation.

And sure, she may be approaching poly from a more casual / dating around perspective, but that can work just fine.
Single, straight, female, solo, non-monogamous.
