Shady? I'm a woman and I wouldn't feel that way. I think that saying one is poly, or some version of ethically non-monogamous, in their profile and how they answer questions is enough - they don't need to mention or link to their partners' profiles for me to take them at their word. That can come up and be discussed in conversations.
